The “C” in the Herbal Aktive C Peel stands for Corrective.
This particular corrective Peel is a skin resurfacing treatment using natural dried, crushed herbs spread over 3 Stages:
Stage 1 includes a 90-minute treatment where the herbs are massaged into your skin.
Stage 2 is where you apply At Home products provided by your treating clinician.
Stage 3 “Post-Treatment” includes a 60-minute relaxing facial 5 days after the Stage 1 treatment.
After the Stage 1 treatment, nearly everyone agrees that their skin just looks better than it did just before treatment. It is glowing, as if after a workout in the gym, and can feel tight. When touching the skin, tiny herbal particles can be felt on the surface. These herb particles will dissolve over the next two days. In the process they release their bio-active ingredients – vitamins, minerals, trace elements and more.
Peeling generally occurs on the 4th day after treatment. Over the next 24 hours, the peeling will progress to the entire treated area. At this point, the skin is ready for the Post-Treatment, where the removal of the final traces of the old skin takes place. Your new skin is then pampered by a relaxing Vitamin Mask rich in beneficial substances.
This “Phyto” peel is a skin resurfacing treatment whereby herb particles are massaged into your skin providing it with a steady, time-released stream of phyto-chemicals over a period of up to 3 days. It differs from skin treatments that are based on synthetic acids, as those acid treatments rely on a degree of injury to the skin to stimulate regeneration of the area treated. The Herbal Aktiv Phyto Peel does not damage or injure the skin.
Skin peeling treatments based on synthetic acids rely on a deliberate, controlled injury for their effect. A deeper wound may offer better outcomes but it will also greatly increase the risk of unwanted side effects such as scarring, post-inflammatory pigmentation, infection etc. Deep chemical peels can also create an abnormal epidermis, similar to scar tissue.
The Herbal Aktiv Peel does not contain any synthetic acids, chemicals or abrasives. At no stage during treatment with Herbal Aktiv Peel is the epidermis breached. The danger of complications is therefore minimised.
