Pixel Peel

In May we chatted about a new treatment called The Pixel Peel. It’s a great treatment that delivers visible results, so we want to focus on it again this month and discuss it further.

If you are looking for a little “more” in terms of an in-salon treatment, the combination of a Dermapen needling treatment and a TCA peel allows an even more effective result in one procedure when compared to these, as standalone treatments. We are able to treat a range of concerns from dull ageing skin, deep lines and enlarged pores to sun damage, pigmentation and uneven texture.

The TCA peel (alone) focuses on a more surface targeted result, whereas the Dermapen creates micro-channels deeper into the skin by puncturing it which then allows the TCA to be carried deeper down. This “puncturing” also induces a wound healing response which means more collagen stimulation, resulting in improved structure, better circulation and nourishment to the skin.

As this is a more invasive treatment, downtime should be expected. This means peeling or flaking will occur on the skin and last for about 4 days. The skin will still look “normal”, meaning minimal to no redness and inflammation, and your normal routine can continue, albeit for a specialised recovery cream that should be used daily as your moisturiser. It takes about 2-3 weeks for the skin to recover fully and the results just keep coming!

For ideal results, we recommend a series of 3 treatments done at 3-4 weekly intervals.

On a separate note, Optiphi have launched a beautiful new product called Hydration Tint. It’s a tinted moisturiser with an SPF of 20. It’s ideal for weekends when you don’t feel like wearing foundation, but still want an even toned skin. If you’re a regular Optiphi user, you may want to take advantage of the special below. You’ll get to try this new product at no additional cost.
