Contact us today to find out more about our range of effective exfoliating treatments.
What is exfoliation?
Exfoliation is a cosmetic technique that removes old dead skin cells on the skin’s outermost surface. With this technique come a series of benefits including healthy and vibrant skin, reduction of breakouts and acne as well as wrinkles.
We provide a variety of different exfoliating treatments from which you can choose. After consultation with our team, we’ll discuss in depth which option would be most suitable for you.
- How are these different from the facials that I get from my beautician?
Medical Facials are performed with pharmaceutical grade anti-ageing ingredients and contain concentrations of products that are not available in other beauty treatments.
- What are these ingredients and how do they help?
One key ingredient in our facials is ChronodynTM, a chronobiological cellular activator that acts as a source of cellular vitality and energy. This powerful anti-ageing ingredient will leave your skin looking younger.
- Are there other anti-ageing ingredients?
Another anti-ageing ingredient is Neodermayl Reacts, which repairs the loss of firmness and elasticity, as well as flaccidity in the appearance of the skin.
This ingredient is also a component of our facial treatments.
- How can I continue to benefit from a facial?
You can also purchase an at home treatment cream so that you can continue to benefit from the effects of these products by continued application of these products at home.
- What is a chemical peel?
A chemical peel is a technique that we use to help improve the appearance and feel of our patient’s skin.
As the name suggests, the technique makes use of a chemical solution that causes the outer layer of dead skin cells to exfoliate and eventually peel off. Over and above rejuvenating your skin chemical peel benefits also include the fact that it is an incredibly inexpensive way of revitalising your skin as well as an effective way to remove unwanted pigment and pores. We offer three types of chemical peels in Perth. The most suitable option is best recommended through consultation with the doctor. The three types include:
- LIGHT (only the top layer of skin): Lactic acid peel – Cleopatra’s milk peel
- MODERATE (top and middle layers ): Pumpkin Peel, Oxygenation Facial
- STRONG (all layers of skin are affected): Ultra-peel forte
Applications for chemical peels include:
- Age spots and ageing skin
- Crow’s feet
- Sun-damaged skin
- Sagging skin
- How are these peels different from the facials that I get?
Peels performed at Samara Aesthetics are only medical grade peels and are therefore formulated differently and have a deeper penetration of the skin. They also consist of additional medications to treat various aspects of your skin type and are formulated to the individual patient. They are therefore not commercially available and are compounded by licensed pharmacists.
- Do I need to prepare my skin?
Specific conditions that your doctor may be treating like acne scars and pigmentation may warrant that you “condition” the skin before applying the peel. This will be explained by the doctor who will then also prescribe the necessary medications to carry out these conditions.
- How long does it last?
The results are maintained best if the peels are repeated at least 6 to 12 monthly.
- Is there any downtime?
Depending on the type of peel generally, there is no downtime (time off from work) with the deeper peels like Jessner’s peels the doctor will coordinate with you the best time to have the treatment to minimise any downtime.
- Is it painful?
No, generally the peels are applied without any anaesthetic preparation of the skin. You may feel an unusual sensation when the peel starts to act, but this is not painful.
- When will I see the results?
The results are usually visible within 5-7 days from treatment.
- What is microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a cosmetic technique that is designed to help refine the skin and diminish the appearance of wrinkles, scars, stretch marks, sun-damaged spots and discolouration for healthier, smoother skin. By using diamond heads of various calibres, the skin is treated to remove the superficial impurities and imperfections.
The benefits of microdermabrasion include:
- Treatment is non-invasive
- Treatment is fast
- Treatment is effective resulting in healthier, more vibrant skin with a glow
