THE AK PEEL

The AK Peel consists of a mixture of glycolic, lactic and salicylic acid, which when used regularly, results in a visible improvement in fine lines, hyper pigmentation, sun damage and acne breakouts. It is a 21% strength acid peel which strips away the top layer of dead skin cells, leaving your skin fresher and brighter, improving lustre and clarity. It also promotes underlying collagen regeneration. It doesn’t remove layers of the epidermis or cause severe redness, burning, shedding and flaking of the skin for days afterwards. In fact, it is referred to as a lunchtime peel – if you wish, you can reapply makeup afterwards and head back to work without anyone noticing.

Price: €95

 

We recommend that peels are performed every 4-6 weeks – any more would be too much for the skin and may cause sensitivity.For optimum results we recommend that you use the Akademikliniken skin care products following, and in-between your peels. The AK peel is offered as a stand-alone treatment or can be done in conjunction with other treatments.

TCA PEEL

The second type of peel is the TCA peel (Trichloracetic Acid). This is a stronger peel and is an excellent treatment for reducing wrinkles, scars, uneven skin texture and uneven pigmentation. The old skin peels away and fresh new skin regenerates. There are two levels of concentration available with the TCA peel:

The first is a 30-40% TCA peel. This gives a sharp peeling of the skin to improve sun damage, hyper pigmentation and wrinkles. This treatment is performed by our physicians, and is often done under general anaesthesia and requires one week of convalescence. One treatment is often sufficient for a great result.

The second is a milder chemical peel with 15% TCA. This treatment is significantly less painful but still gives great results. The healing process with this peel is fairly simple, and many peels can be done over time until the desired result is achieved. A consultation with the Consultant Plastic Surgeon is recommended before booking a TCA peel.

 

FRAXEL LASER

What is Fraxel re:store®?

Fraxel re:store® is a non-invasive, non-ablative laser skin treatment that can resurface the skin, uncovering the younger skin underneath. It can help give you:

Smoother, fresher looking skin
Improved tone and texture
Reduced unwanted brown spots
Reduced wrinkles around the eyes
Improve appearance of acne scars and surgical scars

How does it Work?

Fraxel treatment uses patented fractional technology to target damaged skin with microscopic laser columns that penetrate deep into the skin. The laser treats only a fraction of tissue at a time, leaving the surrounding tissue untouched, which promotes rapid healing. This stimulates your body’s own natural healing process, replacing the old and damaged cells with fresh, glowing, healthy skin.
