np1Completely natural!

What is microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure that removes the top layer of dead skin cells from the surface of the skin, thereby accelerating the skin’s natural renewal cycle, leaving it revitalised and refreshed.

Why choose Naturepeel microdermabrasion?

Naturepeel uses non-toxic natural salt as opposed to Aluminium Oxide, which is used in most other microdermabrasion systems. Salt’s natural cleansing and healing properties make it an ideal exfoliant that can be easily and thoroughly removed from the skin. It does not carry any of the health-associated risks that have been linked with Aluminium Oxide.

Naturepeel technology delivers an effective yet gentle exfoliation of the skin. It includes a deep skin treatment delivered via ultrasound that further boosts collagen and elastin production, resulting in smooth and noticeably fresher looking skin.

Naturepeel’s auto connect hand-piece delivers the salt at a low angle of impingement, lifting the stratum corneum in three easy passes with minimal discomfort

Two Treatments in one system:

Natural, non-toxic salt microdermabrasion acts as a gentle abrasive to remove the top layer of dead skin accelerating skin renewal +

Ultrasound dermaphoresis massages a specially formulated Vitamin C masque, rich in active anti-ageing ingredients into the skin to stimulate collagen and elastin production to give immediate results leaving skin visibly fresh, clear and youthful after the first treatment.

Naturepeel is driven by an positive pressure system – not a vacuum – thus delivering a gentle yet effective epidermal abrasion, with minimal erythema or edema.

The adjustable pressure system gives flexibility to treat different skin conditions effectively – from fine lines and wrinkles to acne scarring and stretch marks.

Salt’s natural healing and cleansing properties makes Naturepeel ideal for use on acne prone and problematic skin conditions.

Naturepeel’s single use, disposable treatment circuit means that every treatment is conducted with sterile equipment.

Naturepeel is compact, lightweight and user-friendly with no downtime – the affordable luxury lunchtime treatment.

Understanding DermaPhoresis™

Apart from the well known skin polishing and smoothing effects of Microdermabrasion, another unseen benefit, increased permeability of the skin to most Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and other antioxidant based skin creams.

The use of low intensity patented ultrasonic “micro-massage” following salt micro-epidermal abrasion further enhances these effects.

How does this all work?

Well, consider the outer layer of your skin (stratum corneum) as a protective cuticle that has become thickened usually as a result of sun damage. The Naturepeel MACROdermabrasion™ removes the hard top layer of the epidermis (stratum corneum) exposing the fresher and softer skin layers beneath. Now creams with antioxidants and AHA’s have a chance to get down to the lower layers of your skin. There they will be even more effective. More of the thick layers of the stratum corneum are removed by the Naturepeel than any of the other microdermabrasion methods currently on the market… thus allowing even better penetration.

It is well documented within published medical literature that with the upper layers of the epidermis removed, the use of ultrasound technology to enhance the delivery of such cream (SonoPhoresis) allows for much better skin penetration and absorption. DermaPhoresis™; a newly patented process is an advancement on SonoPhoresis by combining MACROdermabrasion™ with low frequency UltraSound, the safety issues associated with SonoPhoresis have been eliminated.

DermaPhoresis utilizes the sound waves of a 3 MHz UltraSound device to create an effect on the skin termed “cavitation”. Cavitation by the ultrasound device produces an “air bubble” like effect in the lipid bilayer of the stratum corneum. This allows increased permeability of the skin for a short time. The specially formulated cream (comprised of effective antioxidants and AHA’s in concentrations not found in many over-the-counter products) is gently massaged in a repetitive and soothing circular motion into the skin with an ultrasonic device. A protective gel is then applied and clients leave the salon feeling “wonderful!”.

Clients report feeling immediate and continuous tightening, reduction of fine lines, wrinkles and stretch marks and softer and smoother skin. They have noticed that their skin is more resilient and friends have told them that they seem to have that “youthful glow” about them. Medical researches have indicated that this system provides more consistent cosmetic benefits when compared with other modalities such as non-invasive laser resurfacing, photofacials and photorejuvenation.

  • Why is this treatment unique?

    Suitable for all skin types, Naturepeel™ leaves your skin beautifully clean and polished.

    Following 10 years experience of natural salt based microdermabrasion, appearanceskincare has demonstrated and established the exceptionally good results obtained in collagen renewal and skin restructuring. This long experience in microdermabrasion and the benefits of salt in skin treatments is reflected in the introduction of next generation of salt based microdermabrasion – Naturepeel.

    The Naturepeel programme uniquely combines an ultrasound protocol, “Dermaphoresis” to further improve results. Naturepeel includes a complete therapeutic ultrasound unit, used to infuse a specially formulated vitamin mask into the skin after the salt microdermabrasion. This combination significantly improves collagen renewal and skin restructuring.

    The result is an instantly recognisable rejuvenation effect, far superior to anything achieved by other devices.Microdermabrasion is one of the most popular aesthetic procedures. Naturepeel combines the benefits of salt, with its natural healing properties, to this universally recognised and effective procedure.

    Simple and safe, a typical Naturepeel™ treatment can be either a luxury facial treatment or part of a clinically effective programme. Naturepeel’s single use treatment circuit, complete with its specially designed hand piece delivers pure salt to remove the dead cells from the treatment area. In typically three easy passes, the dead cell layer of the skin is successfully removed.

    Simple touch screen controls allow the treatment strength to be easily controlled, making Naturepeel™ kinder to the skin and giving the flexibility to treat a variety of skin types and conditions.In addition to typical facial treatments, Naturepeel Microdermabrasion also opens up significant treatment options for difficult conditions such as active acne and mature stretch marks.

  • Can I use make up after my treatment?

    Yes. It is recommended that you apply only mineral make up immediately after and as part of your home-care programme. We recommend the BPC Mineral Make Up range.
