Facial peels – a progressive, not aggressive treatment philosophy


Are you wanting smoother, brighter, more even looking youthful skin? A chemical peel may be the answer for you. At Liberty Belle we offer gentle, progressive peels – don’t let the word ‘chemical’ deter you from experiencing this effective anti-ageing treatment.

It is often thought that if a little something is good then more must be better. This is especially untrue when it comes to treating the skin. Inflammation is the underlying cause of many skin conditions we work to treat. Triggering irritation and inflammation in the skin with overly aggressive peeling treatments and products may worsen realistic or problematic skin conditions rather than correct them.

It is a common misconception that professional peels must always be aggressive solutions in high percentages that result in excessive visible peeling, scabbing and downtime to obtain quick results. This may be appropriate for specific conditions such as extremely thickened or sun damaged skins and severe scarring perhaps, but it is not necessary for the majority of patients looking for skin rejuvenation.

By selecting professional peeling treatments that gently stimulate and renew the skin while infusing it with nourishing ingredients, faster, more dramatic treatment outcomes will consistently be achieved.

If the goal is healthy, beautiful skin then the low dose approach is usually the best choice. To optimise result, professional treatments must be supported with a customised skin maintenance program. A combination of products containing UV protection, Vitamin A, Vitamin B3, Vitamin C, Growth Factors, alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) and peptides maintain skin health and help target particular skin conditions.

In young skin, natural skin cell turnover usually follows the four week biological calendar like many other body cycles, however the speed of the cell-turnover cycle slows with age.

Collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, which comprise a large part of the skin’s extracellular matrix (ECM) or support structure, also decrease with time, leading to dehydration, fine lines and wrinkles.

Liberty Belle’s progressive, not aggressive, approach to professional treatments and products increases the skin’s natural skin cell turnover rate while combatting the visible changes that come with ageing. The result is smoother, brighter, more even-looking youthful skin.
