What is a retinol peel?
A retinol peel is a skin peel that can help maintain the general appearance and health of skin; they are particularly effective on acne prone skin and have great anti-ageing benefits as retinol can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
How does a retinol peel work?
Retinol is a form of vitamin A, which is used in skincare products as it encourages the growth of skin cells once it is applied. Due to its small molecular size, retinol is able to penetrate into the deeper layers of your skin. As this is where your live sin cells are, the retinol that reaches this level encourages your skin cells to grow and renew. A retinol peel can also help unclog your pores and reduce acne outbreaks by allowing the cleansed skin to heal.
Who is a Retinol Peel for?
A retinol peel is ideal if you want to rejuvenate, hydrate and refresh your complexion. If you have more specific skin concerns including acne or ageing signs such as fine line and wrinkles, then a retinol peel could be the perfect solution for you to reduce symptoms.
What are the main benefits of a Retinol Peel?
There are both short-term and long-term benefits to be gained from choosing a retinol peel, which is one of its great advantages. After a retinol peel, your skin will be hydrated and feel more balanced due to the increased number of fresh skin cells now on the surface of your skin. Acne flare-ups will be calmed and symptoms reduced.
This treatment is also fantastic for anti-ageing and can minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, boosting the skin’s elasticity and plumpness, and slowing down the breakdown of natural collagen.
