At Vitality Centre Ballsbridge, you will find an advanced hydrating chemical peel known as The Crystal Facial. This incredibly advanced chemical peel delivers exceptional skin rejuvenating results through the delivery of 5 unique stages. Unlike harsh methods this advanced treatments includes 4 additional treatments to help your skin recover faster and enable the peel to have better and more profound effects.
This step improves the results of the chemical peel by gently removing the upper dermal layer. Dead skin and sun damage are gently and affectively abraded away.
At Vitality Centre, we make chemical peels more comfortable and enjoyable. The chemical skin peel re-surfaces at professional medical grade of 30% glycolic/lactic & salicylic peel. The combination of glycolic acid, lactic acid and salicylic acid within a superficial chemical peel provides a skin exfoliant to chemically remove keratinised structures of the epidermis, restoring a radiant complexion. Safe and easy to use with no downtime.
During your crystal chemical peel, you will lie down comfortably on a heated bed made of 28LBs of amethyst crystal and far infra red heat. This bed induces lymphatic drainage deep within the skin by heating the blood and circulatory system which means that detoxification of the skin is switched on during your entire treatment.
Your skin is bathed in a potent and rich combination of co-enzyme Q10, hyaluronic acid and collagen serums and creams.
The skin is cooled using cold stone crystal rollers for further absorption of products and increased healing.
Glycolic acid is a type of Alpha Hydroxy Acid derived from sugar cane (it can also be made synthetically). Due to its smaller molecular size, glycolic acid is more effective than other alpha hydroxy acids and when used correctly can improve the look and feel of the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and age spots.
Glycolic acid works in a number of ways, primarily through its exfoliation properties. On application the glycolic acid penetrates the upper layer of the epidermis, weakening the binding properties of the lipids that hold dead skin cells together. This action allows the layer of dead skin cells to dissolve revealing the underlying skin.
