What is an Azyme Peel?
Our Ultraceuticals A-Zyme peel or skin workout has long been one of our favourite Advanced Skin Treatments, but now it is 'NEW & IMPROVED'!
This Star Performing Paramedical treatment contains exclusive Ultra-Reti microparticles, an advanced delivery technology for Retinol. Developed to support the skin's epidermis and dermis, this treatment will smooth and dramatically soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. In addition to the pure Retinol (1%), the A-Zyme is also supported with the additional benefits of Bromelain Concentrate (8%). Bromelain improves the visual appearance of the skin by digesting the keratin of dead skin cells, therefore accelerating the turnover and exfoliation of these cells which helps to even out skin tone and dramatically refine the texture of the skin.
So why do you need Vitamin A in your skin? Vitamin A has a small molecular structure meaning its able to get to the lower layers of the skin to work from the inside out. It is an extremely effective cell-communicating ingredient which means it can connect to almost any skin cell and tell it to behave like a younger, healthy functioning cell. It works by promoting skin cells to regenerate at a faster level bringing through fresh young skin cells and getting rid of old damaged ones!
With all this cell turnover it is now producing a lot more hylauranic acid, (our skins own natural hydration) giving the skin a fresh glow. One of its most powerful qualities is its ability at normalising and regulating oil production (amazing for acne or breakout prone skin with in-salon treatments and home care use). The anti-aging effects of Retionl on the skin have been broadly acknowledged and widely documented. Clinically Vitamin A has been shown to promote the deposition of new collagen and prevent its degeneration (reduces fine lines and wrinkles). In addition it reduces pigmentation and sun damage as it acts like a “jack-hammer” breaking up the damaged melanin cells in the deeper layers of your skin, bringing them to the surface where they can be exfoliated off! As your oil flow slows down and you are producing more collagen, your pore size will slowly start to refine and shrink in size making them less visible to the naked eye.
If you can imagine a technologically advanced peel that provides real visible results without discomfort, minimal to no redness making it a great “lunch time” peel allowing you to go about your day with no signs of had having a peel. Three days after your peel you may experience some “shedding” or light flaking of the skin, however using the Ultraceuticals post peel products will reduce this downtime and ensure best results. If you are looking for best results, I recommend this as your go to peel. It's definitely my favourite!
