Agera® Rx Skin Peels
Skin Etc uses the revolutionary proliferative peels created by AGERA® Rx which are non-irritating, painfree and cause no down time. There will be no skin shedding, and irritation. The skin peel treatments cause significant stimulation of the fibroblasts deep within the skin to produce new collagen and elastin. This proliferative effect on the skin’s cells delivers many anti-ageing benefits without any unsightly skin shedding or redness. After only one session, the skin will look clearer, smoother and brighter.

Skin Etc recommend a course of 4 - 6 peels to obtain the very best results. After a consultation the peel treatment that best suits your skin will be chosen for the initial treatment. Subsequent peels can then be increased in strength offering you the very best results.

Skin Etc offer skin peels treatments for anti ageing, hyperpigmentation, acne and are suitable for all skin types. Skin Etc also offer a range of Agera RX skincare products which compliment the peel treatments which help continue that healthy looking glow and beautifully smooth skin.
The Treatment
The skin peel treatment usually takes no longer than 30 minutes in total. First the skin is thoroughly cleansed, then a prepping solution is applied to the skin to prepare it for the peel. The peel is then applied to the skin with a small brush once the full area of the face as been covered a layer wet gauze is then placed onto the skin. The peel is then activated by the application of iced water. The gauze is the removed and Mag C serum is applied to the face , finally the skin is protected with Agera sun protection factor 25.
It is important to wear sun protection of no less than 25 after the treatment and avoid sun exposure for 48 hours. Saunas, steam rooms and any extreme heat must be avoided for two days following the treatment.

Easy TCA Medium Depth Peels

Easy TCA Peels can be used on all types of skin e.g. fine skin, normal skin or greasy or thick skin. It can also be used safely and effectively on black and Asian skin. There is no need for any skin preparation when using Easy TCA Peel and it can be applied directly on top of makeup, although it is advisable to clean the skin with a special cleansing foam

After applying the Easy TCA Peel to the skin the patient will experience some mild heat or irritation. This shows the product is working. The practitioner will be looking for the first visible signs of "frosting" after which they will apply a post peel cream, which will immediately stop the irritation. After approximately 30 minutes to one hour the skin will feel more taut and healthy. It is usual that the peel is applied as course of 4 peels, 2 weeks apart. The Course can be repeated during the year if necessary and lighter peels such as Skin Tech’s Easy Phytic peel can be used in between courses if desired.

Easy TCA Peel can be used on all types of skin e.g. fine skin, normal skin or greasy or thick skin. It can also be used safely and effectively on Black and Asian skin but it is recommended that the skin pigment in coloured skins should be “down-regulated” for several weeks before and after the Easy TCA peel to reduce any post procedure risks of hyperpigmentation. This can be done by the simple application of a pigment controlling cream such as Skintech’s Bleaching Blending Creams.

Your skin may flake after 3 – 5 days. Not all patients shed skin in the same way, as all patients are different. Rest assured you will not shed your skin completely like a snake! When you do start to peel, do not rub the skin harshly or use exfoliant products. These can cause redness and irritation and possible infection. Continue to use the moisturising cream supplied by your Easy TCA Peel clinic as directed. It is important to remember that whilst undergoing treatment with Easy TCA Peel the skin has little or no protection to UV light (both UVA and UVB). Therefore it is important not to expose the skin to sun light for at least two weeks following the Easy TCA Peel treatment. You should always wear a sunscreen (minimum SPF25), even in winter
