FAQ's


How do Peels Work?

SILK Laser Clinics use O Cosmedics PRO Dermal Planning Peels. This is the next generation of skin treatments. These peels blend high end active vitamins, peptides and antioxidants with carefully chosen AHA, BHA and enzymes in an advanced delivery system to ensure the skin is rebuilt, strengthened and repaired from the inside out.

What conditions are treatable with PRO Dermal Planning Peels?

• Fine Lines and Wrinkles • Age Spots/superficial pigmentation • Enlarged Oily Pores • Breakouts • Superficial scarring • Blackheads and Whiteheads • General Exfoliation of dead skin cells • Blending of Post Laser treatments • Assist in reduction of acne

What conditions can’t be treated?

We will not treat over active sores (herpes simplex virus). If you have been prescribed Roaccutane we will not be able to treat for 6 months post finishing the medication. Peels are not offered during pregnancy. If you have sun exposure in the 2 weeks prior to treatment we will need to postpone your treatment.

How long does a treatment take?

The treatment takes approximately 30mins, depending on the skin concerns being treated, and can be done during a lunch break.

How will I look after the treatment?

Initially the treated area is red due to increased circulation but will generally fade within a few hours. Exfoliation and peeling with some of the peels is common a few days after treatment but will decrease once multiple treatments have been performed and the area is in better condition. If breakouts or damaged skin have been treated, the area may be red and could scab lasting approximately 5-7 days with no residual scarring. Mineral make up can be applied to the area immediately after treatment, to ensure you can get back to your day without any interruption.

How many treatments will I need?

For general rejuvenation, it is recommended to have approximately six treatments with treatments being performed every 2-4 weeks (advised by your technician to best suit your skin). Severe breakouts or pigmentation may require more treatments. After the first course, this can be maintained every 8-12 weeks.

What do I need to do to prepare for my chemical peel?-

We believe that preparation of the skin is crucial to achieving maximum results. Specific homecare products will be prescribed for you to use at home before your chemical peel treatment. We can then more precisely predict the outcome and limit the possibility of adverse reactions. The skin will be healthier, more hydrated and acclimatised to the ingredients we will use, allowing a better result from the treatment.

Where can I find out more about the procedure?

A good starting point is to book a consultation with one of our experienced skin technicians. You will have the opportunity to discuss your concerns and ask questions. You will be provided with detailed information regarding the treatments or procedures that can help you, the expected outcomes, and the costs involved.

Testimonials

  • I think SILK have top quality machines that do the job you pay for. I've been to a cheaper place before with no results. I'm now doing touch ups once a year and I love it thanks SILK (Elizabeth)
    Gen, Elizabeth
  • I wanted to thank you personally for the service that I've received so far during my treatment at SILK. While I'm only about half way through my treatments, my results have been out of this world and for someone who has had thick "European" body hair up until now, and had to plan trips to the beach\swimming centre with my kids around my waxing schedule this has been a revelation.You have honestly given me my life back and I am so thrilled to refer you on to anyone and everyone I know. I can't quite figure out why I waited until this point in my life to do it.
