The Deep Sea Peel by CosMedix is a potent peel to dramatically improve the condition of your skin.
What makes this peel so special is the unique blend of peeling agents and the high level of botanical extracts to support the normal function and structure of the skin.
Is the Deep Sea Peel right for you?
If you see what seems to be premature ageing?
These visible signs can appear as roughness, dehydration, lines and wrinkles and blotchiness.
If you have brown patches of pigmentation?
Over time, what was once a tan can become blotchy patches of brown pigment that can be difficult to treat.
Does your skin look dull and sallow and in need of a boost?
Sometimes, the skin can look like it’s lost its glow no matter what you do.
Note: This treatment is not for sensitive skin. However, we can work with you to strengthen your skin and get it ready.
The Benefits of the Deep Sea Peel.
After about 4 – 7 days, you’ll see your skin in a whole new light.
The immediate benefit is brighter, more radiant skin and a vastly improved texture.
The benefits of this peel are long-lasting. Not only have we removed dead skin cells, but the skin is normalised to perform so much better.
The Deep Sea Peel is a catalyst for halting the destructive enzymes found in the skin, which can degrade collagen and elastin, leaving your skin damaged and prematurely aged.
Positive activities that happen naturally but slow down with age and environmental damage will be accelerated to improve the performance of the skin to give a more youthful appearance.
The Deep Sea Peel doesn’t just make your skin look better; it is better.
You’ll notice an improvement and softening of lines and wrinkles as collagen and elastin production is activated to support the underlying layers of your skin.
Blotchy patches of epidermal hyperpigmentation are cleared away to reveal a more even skin tone.
How does it work?
Coral and Seaweed extracts will activate the skin to increase cell turnover and lift away dead skin cells.
Although this is a peel treatment, it works similarly to micro-needling as the microscopic particles of the Coral and Seaweed extracts puncture the skin to cause a physical micro-trauma. This action ignites a strong vascular and inflammatory response, which activates the growth factors responsible for new collagen. Blood flow, oxygen and nutrient supply to the skin are improved to assist in the overall renewal of the skin.
The CosMedix Deep Sea Herbal Peel lifts the epidermis to promote shedding and removal of old, damaged skin cells. The combined action of friction and marine silicates causes micro-trauma to the skin, activating the natural rejuvenation process. The skin naturally replenishes its moistures levels, renews collagen synthesis and improves overall epidermal structure.
One of the great things about this peel is the improved volume in the skin. Not something that is generally associated with other peels but with the increase in dermal integrity, a voluminous bounce is visibly noticeable in the skin even after just one treatment.
What are the key ingredients in the Deep Sea Peel by CosMedix?
- Coral – Coral silicates contain powerful oligo proteins, sea salt and calcium that enter skin cells to deliver minerals and nutrients.
- Sponge – A specialised combination of medium-coarse abrasive exfoliants that gently peel upper layers of skin.
- Sea Herbs – An innovative blend of botanical plant extracts provide a potent mix of antioxidants to support and restore skin structure and appearance.
- Shea Butter – A natural butter extracted from Shea trees enhances cell elasticity and decreases wrinkle formation. Provides slide and glide for the active Coral and Seaweed Extract.
- Horse Chestnut – is an antioxidant and improves blood circulation.
- Centella Asiatica – is a natural herb that normalises dermal tissue to support collagen fibres.
- Resveratrol – a naturally derived compound found in the skin of red grapes and other dark coloured fruits is antioxidant and anti-inflammatory.
What you’ll need to do before your treatment?
The Deep Sea Peel is potent. Before we proceed, we’ll sit down with you for a skin consultation to analyse your skin and discuss your skin goals; this is especially important if you’re coming to us for the first time.
Once we’ve determined whether the Deep Sea Peel is suitable for you, we’ll recommend the appropriate skincare to prepare and support your skin at home before your treatment.
We recommend 2 – 4 weeks of preparation at home before your treatment. We’ll advise you at your pre-treatment consultation of the time frame, depending on your skin condition.
What happens during your treatment?
We prepare your skin with a thorough cleanse. We then divide the facial area into three sections.
The peel is applied to each section and massaged into the skin for 1-10 minutes, depending on the intensity required.
The treatment typically takes about 45 minutes.
What to expect after your treatment?
Immediately after your Deep Sea Peel, your skin will go through a healing and recovery process. We’ll check in with you to make sure everything is going okay.
The skin can feel a little sensitised for a few days. The sensation can feel like “broken glass” in the skin (only when touched), which sounds a bit strange, but over a few days, the silicate particles from the coral and seaweed extract will dry out the epidermis, and the skin starts to shed dead skin cells which can take between 4 – 7 days.
We strongly advise you to avoid sun exposure during this time, and when you do go out, please wear broadspectrum sunscreen.
You’ll begin to see your newly refreshed and rejuvenated skin by day seven.
