Medik8 Skin Peels -12 Weeks to WOW!
Medik8’s new ‘12 Weeks to WOW!’ method is a complete work out for your skin. And just like regular personal training sessions, you’ll see incredible improvements week by week. Results include smoother, radiant skin, a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles and a more even, radiant complexion.
Medik8’s innovative ’12 Weeks to WOW!’ method is completely personalised to your skin. Delivered by our highly trained skin aesthetician, your customised peel programme involves a course of six peels at our Gerrards Cross skin clinic. You’ll also be prescribed a full home regime of skincare products specifically designed to tackle your skin concerns.
How does the Medik8 Peel work?
The peel process involves applying a safe, high strength active acid to the skin. The solution gets to work in quick time removing dead skin cells, increasing skin cell regeneration, and boosting fibroblasts – the cells which produce collagen.
Medik8’s ‘12 Weeks to WOW!’ peels are jam-packed with skin-improving benefits:
• Powerful but gentle – A super powerful peel with an innovative time release delivery system, which minimises skin irritation and stinging. As the peel can be left on for longer – up to 10 minutes – your skin benefits from its full effect.
• Customised for you – Peels are tailored to your skin and adjusted each appointment depending on your skin changes, giving you optimum results.
• Regular Peels = Faster Results – Unlike normal peels which can only be taken every one to three months, Medik8’s skin peels are extremely potent but gentle on the skin. This means you can take them at two-week intervals, giving you great skin in less time.
Medik8s Peels are formulated to solve a variety of skin problems. There are six peels in total:
Medik8 Rewind Peel – If you’re concerned about signs of skin aging then the high strength Rewind Peel is for you. It kickstarts collagen production – the protein that gives skin its strength and elasticity – smooths and plumps the skin surface and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Medik8 Even Peel – If you suffer from uneven pigmentation, such as age spots, melasma or hyperpigmentation (patches of darker skin) caused by sun damage, Medik8’s Even Peel is the ideal treatment. It minimises melanin production, lightens dark patches and prevents further pigmentation forming.
Medik8 Universal AHA Peel – If you’ve never had a skin peel before, or want an effective post-peel course boost, then the Universal AHA peel is the ideal treatment. Its mild formula is suitable for all skin types and instantly revitalises and smooths facial skin. It’s also a great
decongestant, deeply exfoliating pores and removing dead skin cells.
Medik8 Clarity Peel – The Clarity Peel has a dramatic improvement on acne-prone skin. If you have congestion, spots or large pores, this peel deep cleans and unblocks pores and sloughs away old skin cells – exposing new smooth skin cells underneath. It also prevents new spots forming and helps re-set skin cell turnover.
Medik8 Sensitive PHA – This peel is the perfect match for sensitive skin which reddens easily. Alongside boosting skin renewal, it provides deep exfoliation, decongesting and brightening the skin.
Medik8 Eye Reveal Peel – The Eye Reveal peel’s safe, skin-friendly formula boosts collagen production and improves the skin texture around the delicate eye area. As well as reducing appearance of fine lines and crow’s feet, it significantly brightens dark under eye circles.
Medik8’s ’12 Weeks to WOW’ peels have been clinically designed to take the sting out of traditional peels. Without any irritation, you can keep the peel on for longer, maximising the effect of the treatment.
The immediate effect of your peel can be seen after one treatment. Skin looks fresher and smoother. Over the treatment course (typically six peels over a period of 12 weeks) you will see a noticeable improvement in your skin texture. As your skin continues to create new collagen, your skin quality will continue to improve. Older skin will appear fresher and firmer, acne-prone skin clearer and smoother, uneven complexions more even and radiant.
What to expect
To start your skin improvement journey simply book a pre-peel consultation at our skin clinic in Gerrards Cross, Buckinghamshire. During your visit – which should take place two weeks, before your first treatment – our expert skin aesthetician will discuss your skin concerns and the results you want to achieve. To ensure you’re suitable for our bespoke chemical peel treatments, you’ll be given a skin patch test and asked about your medical history (See FAQs below).
We’ll also provide you with advice on how to prepare your skin before your first peel procedure and the pre-peel skincare solutions to use at home. During your peel treatment, your skin will be thoroughly cleansed, and a pre-peel solution applied. Your peel is gently applied using a disposable soft brush. The peel is then left on for between one and 10 minutes, depending on the treatment you’re having. Our skin aesthetician stays with you throughout making regular checks on the skin and how you are doing.
Once complete, a gentle neutralising solution is applied to your skin followed by a calming cleanser. A soft, damp gauze will then be placed on your face for a few minutes, followed by a soothing serum. The last touch is applying sunscreen protection.
Treatment name FAQs
Q: How many bespoke Medik8 peels will I need?
The number of treatments depends on what you’re seeking treatment for and the overall condition of your skin. A course of the Medik8 ’12 Weeks to WOW!’ typically involves six peels taken at two-week intervals over 12 weeks.
Before each peel, our aesthetician will discuss changes in your skin and select the most appropriate peel treatment for you.
Q: How often are the peel treatments?
Unlike regular peels, Medik8’s peels can be taken every ten to fourteen days over the course of 12 weeks.
Q: Is the peel painful?
‘12 weeks to WOW’ skin peels are clinically designed to minimise irritation. Its time release formula slowly releases the active ingredient into the skin, so it is a comfortable experience. Plus, you can keep the peel on for longer.
Q: How do I care for my skin after the peel treatment?
Full after-care instructions will be provided at your consultation. We will also provide you with all the skincare solutions you need in the days after your peel, including soothing cleansers, skin serums and sunscreen. As well as supporting healing, this intensifies the results.
Your skin should be treated gently afterwards (no abrasive face cloths or exfoliators). You should also wear a high protection sun screen every day, even if it’s not sunny. Even though it might be tempting, it’s important to leave your skin to re-new naturally.
Q. Is ’12 Weeks to WOW!’ suitable for everyone?
As with most peel treatments, ‘12 Weeks to WOW!’ is not suitable if you are pregnant or breastfeeding or undergoing cancer treatment. Some skin conditions also prevent treatment, such as if you’re prone to keloid scarring or skin allergies. If you have any questions about your suitability for this treatment, please contact us.
