What is BioRePeelCl3?
Chemical Peels have long been a popular non-surgical treatment for patients who want to improve the quality and condition of their skin. Peels are what we call a chemical exfoliant, helping to actively clear away the build-up of dead skin cells to reveal the more youthful and radiant looking skin beneath, whilst also working to stimulate fibroblast activity in order to encourage the production collagen – one of the important ‘building blocks’ of skin that gives it strength and structure.
BioRepeelCl3 is a 35% TCA Peel (TCA stands for Trichloroacetic Acid – a non-toxic chemical related to vinegar that has been used for decades in non-surgical aesthetic treatments) to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and scarring. It’s suitable for use on a variety of different skin types and a treatment requires minimal down time, meaning you can get back to day to day life immediately. Depending on the concentration of the TCA, this type of peel penetrates through the top five layers of the epidermis to the upper most layers of the dermis (source: https://www.saveface.co.uk/treatments/skin-rejuvenation/chemical-peels/).
As with the vast majority of non-surgical aesthetic treatments, it is important that you seek advice from a medical professional if you really want to see the best (and safest) results from a chemical peel. Nowadays, there are a range of ‘home-based’ chemical peel products that are on offer from retailers, but these aren’t necessarily suited to every skin type and can occasionally cause adverse reactions, as well as not producing the anticipated results. In addition to this, your medical provider will be able to advise you on the recommended frequency for treatments for optimal results.
