Ultracetuicals A Zyme peel now available

I am excited that we now offer the Ultraceuticals A Zyme Peel. Let me tell you about this new anti aging chemical peel I now offer at Facial Artistry.

Site Images / beauty treatment (medium)The A Zyme peel is a non invasive and comfortable skin rejuvenation treatment that combines the fast acting potent ingredients Retinol and Bromelain, an enzyme derived from pineapples, to refresh, refine, hydrate and plump your skin.

This enzyme peel effectively improves all skin types and concerns, including acne and sun damage, while improving the skin’s texture and tone. This treatment is also ideal for the neck and décolletage.

Benefits of A Zyme Peeling

Retinol 1%

  • Assists in reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Hydrates, plumps and firms the skin.
  • Helps to refine the epidermis creating a softer and smoother skin.
  • Helps increase fibroblast growth and collagen synthesis.
  • Improves clarity and helps restore radiance to the complexion.

Bromelain 6%

  • Visibly re texturises the skin.
  • Anti inflammatory agent.
  • Anecdotal evidence suggests that topically applied bromelain helps uneven pigmentation, fine lines and brown spots in addition to exfoliating skin.
  • May accelerate the action of retinol into the skin.
  • Digests degraded keratin resulting in softer and smoother skin.
  • Has the ability to digest the dead proteins and keratin without harming younger living cells.
  • Assists to unclog the pores.
  • Non irritating.

How does the A Zyme Peel work within the skin?

Retinol has ben shown to significantly accelerate cellular regeneration. This encourages the old cells to be removed to make way for new younger, fresher skin cells to appear on the skins surface. Retinol accelerates proteins within the supporting layers of the skin to produce Hyaluronic Acid which intensely hydrates and plumps skin creating a luminous glow to the skin. Bromelain, assists the skin to readily absorb Retinol while dramatically refining surface texture.

What does the peel feel like?

The A Zyme Peel may cause a slight tingling, or pins and needles feeling in the skin, but no pain.

What will I look like after a treatment?

These treatments cause minimal irritation or redness. Any minor irritation or flaking is easily covered with makeup. For most people there is usually no obvious peeling of the skin after the treatment, however some people do experience some skin peeling for a few days.  They work by enhancing the skins own regenerative capacity and it is not necessary to see peeling for them to be working. There is usually no disruption to normal work or social commitments.

Are there any side effects of these treatments?

Minor flaking and some redness can be expected and are temporary when combining the Azyme peel with Microdermabrasion and or sonophoresis for a more advanced peel.

Side effects are generally a result of poor aftercare, using the incorrect products following a treatment, allergies to specific ingredients contained within the peel or picking at the skin following a treatment. These effects are rare.

A Zyme Peels are safe to perform on almost all skin types but are not recommended for use during pregnancy and lactation.

Those who have been on Roaccutane within the last 6 months, or have been using Retin A regularly, and those prone to cold sores, should discuss these particular situations at your initial consultation before booking in a treatment.
