30% Lactic Acid Peel Using Ultra MD Skincare Products.

 

I started my consultation at Total Face Group with a skin analysis from the lovely Vanessa, she seemed very polite and knowledgeable, I expressed my concerns about my rosacea and she knew exactly what treatments weren't beneficial to me.  We took photographs of my skin without make up to see how my skin looks on the surface and beneath the surface using advanced technology. This type of technology shows you concerns you may not have known about since they are below the surface, for example I have pigmentation on my top lip and around my hairline which I cant see when im makeup free. The photos also let you see where you have excess oil production, redness, enlarged pores, uneven skin etc. 

Knowing that I have mild rosacea and some pigmentation, Vanessa suggested we do a Lactic Acid Peel, Lactic acid is mild enough for rosacea but it still effective at evening out skin tone (although you may need more than 1 treatment). The peel I was going to be having was using all Ultra MD Skincare products which is the sister company to Ultraceuticals. This Ultra MD range can only be bought from clinics as you need to advised by a skincare professional as to what products to use. Using these products without guidance could cause further damage to your skin, so make sure you see a skincare professional.

30 Mintues Later

Redness has calmed down

Day 1

My skin felt very smooth and looked very clean, I also started to notice the pigmentation on my top lip and around my hairline getting darker

Day 5

 

I had dryness around my lips and the perimeter of my face, including the forehead. It felt as if I needed a to give my face a good scrub. I could also see darks dots that were flaking off, if you look closely there is one on my left cheek and left side of my forehead.

 

Day 9 

Skin felt smooth and shiny, no more dryness on the face. Lip pigmentation is still there but looks alot better. Also with the naked eye I can no longer see pigmentation in my hairline. I am also aware that pigmentation will no go completely away with one treament. 

Day 5

I had dryness around my lips and the perimeter of my face, including the forehead. It felt as if I needed a to give my face a good scrub. I could also see darks dots that were flaking off, if you look closely there is one on my left cheek and left side of my forehead.

 

Overall, I'm very happy with the lactic acid peel, my skin felt smoother and looked clearer. I'm also very happy that it didn't aggravate my rosacea. The place itselfs looks a little outdated, and I hated the fact then when you walk past reception to sit in the waiting room you pass an office that is completely open, no door or wall. My skin therapist was lovely, though I did hear other staff talking about what they were having for lunch from the waiting room.
