How does it work?
The herbs contained in Deep Phyto Peeling are known for their healing, soothing and regenerating properties. Each herb consists of a multitude of active phytochemical constituents; fats, carbohydrates, proteins including enzymes, vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants.. They also contain secondary metabolites or trace elements such as phenols, tannins, isoflavones, saponins, resins, flavonoids, glycosides, coumarins, bitters, lignins, salicylates etc. Despite significant recent advances in biochemistry, no man-made formula can come close to matching its biological processes. With the Deep Phyto Peeling, the herb particles massaged into the skin provide it with a steady, time-released stream of phytochemicals over a period of up to 3 days. Your skin will visibly peel for a fresh glowing complexion.
About the procedure
Deep Phyto Peeling owes its effectiveness to the unique combination of herbal ingredients with a mixture of glycolic and salicylic acids. In the initial phase of the treatment, the skin’s proteins interact with the molecules of the acid causing frost effect and improved results. The products used contain keratolytic ingredients that support a quick and deep effect on the skin. The main ingredient – Spongilla (freshwater sponge), helps exfoliate the skin whilst enriching it naturally occurring minerals. This allows us to completely eliminate the mechanical friction process and its negative consequences. Despite it being highly effective, the procedure is safe and results in very little redness, due to the nourishing, creamy consistency of the peel and it not containing any hydrogen peroxide. In addition, the treatment works great on clients with severe, cystic acne.
How many treatments are required?
You’ll see the results of a peel when your skin fully heals, generally within 1-3 weeks. The treatment can be done as a one-off peel to brighten and refresh the skin. Alternatively, Deep Phyto Peeling can be used as an intensive series of 3-5 treatments, done consecutively once every 24 hours to achieve more dramatic results. After healing is complete, the skin is much clearer and luminous, more elastic, and the appearance of deep wrinkles and severe pigmentation is significantly reduced
