Your Guide to Corrective Exfoliation
What is a Peel?
The key to a successful treatment lies in the peel's contents, says McIntosh. Using natural, chirally correct ingredients—ingredients filtered in their most elemental form to contain only the purest, skin-safe molecules—CosMedix peels work with the skin to prompt the renewal process. “With CosMedix peels, there really is no true peeling, but a mild sloughing of the skin.” This process—known as metabolic peeling—achieves dramatic results without the irritation and consequent recovery time of a true chemical peel.
Is a Peel Right for Me?
“Peels can vary in intensity, from very superficial like Pomegranate Peel, to deep epidermal exfoliation like that of Purity Peel or a traditional Jessner's peel, to a mid-depth dermal peel like Timeless Peel or a traditional TCA peel,” explains McIntosh. Your specific skin concern, along with your skin care provider's assessment, will help establish the most effective solution for you.
What Are the Possible Side Effects?
In addition to using chirally correct, natural ingredients, CosMedix peels contain exclusive, state-of-the-art compounds, including encapsulated retinol, which are designed to affect change with minimum trauma. In the case of encapsulated retinol, retinol—the industry's most popular peeling ingredient—is combined with arabino-galactan protein conjugates from red wine. By adding these conjugates to retinol, CosMedix is able to sidestep the ingredient's signature irritation while delivering its full rejuvenating benefits.
Do I Need to Prep Before a Peel?
What Can I Expect After My Peel?
“Traditional peel recovery can take as long as one to two weeks,” explains McIntosh. “CosMedix peels range from virtually no downtime, in the case of Today's Peels, to five to seven days for Tomorrow's Peels.”
CosMedix further diminishes an otherwise grueling recovery process with a collection of after-care products designed to minimize post-peel side effects and reinforce the treatment's results. In addition to providing professional UV protection—a must for any peel—these products help calm the skin, combat inflammation and neutralize skin-damaging free radicals to ensure your renewed complexion endures.
Your Seven Day Post-Peel Forecast
What to Expect After a Tomorrow's Peel:
Day 1: Skin may appear pink and feel tight. You may also experience mild swelling.
Day 2: Tightness and swelling start to subside. You may notice slight flaking around the nose and mouth as dead skin starts to slough away.
Day 3: You should experience less tightening and more flaking as dead skin continues to slough off, particularly while cleansing.
Day 4: Continue cleansing to hasten the removal of dead skin.
Day 5: Most heavy peeling should be over. Your skin care professional may recommend a mild exfoliating mask like CosMedix's Pure Enzymes to remove any remaining dead skin.
Day 6: By now, you should notice a clearer, smoother looking complexion with little to no flaking.
Day 7: Enjoy your renewed complexion.
