Elaine Brennan Skin Renewal Peel

We are very excited to be the first skin clinic in Ireland to offer Elaine Brennan Skin Renewal Peel!  It is a unique treatment which produces a superior peeling that is safe and extremely effective. It achieves a true rejuvenation of the skin resulting in the dramatic improvement in its elasticity, texture, and color.

Unlike other deep chemical peels, Elaine Brennan’s Skin Renewal Peel is extremely safe even for the most sensitive skins. Some peelings can destroy the cells in the deeper layers of the epidermis, which can damage the delicate skin tissues. With our unique peeling formulation, any risks are removed by using special base ingredients which have no penetration properties and cannot carry the peeling process too deeply into the skin. Therefore, there are no toxic side-effects. The best part is it can be customized to different skin types.

Perfect For:

  • Wrinkles
  • Acne
  • Pigmentation/Freckles
  • Melasma
  • Enlarged Pores

Ingredients

Resorcinol, Kojik Acid and Salicylic acid. All ingredients used in the peeling system are of the finest medical grade quality and are approved by the FDA for use on the skin.

Resorcinol is a natural anesthetic which makes the peeling very much more tolerable than TCA and other combined acid chemical peels. Resorcinol is also a derivative of hydroquinone which makes it effective on pigment. Resorcinol works by breaking down rough, scaly or hardened skin and is used to treat acne, eczema, psoriasis, seborrhea, photo aging, solar keratosis, epidermal atrophy as well as vastly improving skin tone, facial redness and unevenness.

Salicylic Acid is used to treat skin conditions such as psoriasis, acne, oily skin, blackheads and whiteheads. It directly dissolves the keratin plugs to regulate the skins cells acting as an exfoliant. Salicylic acid improves collagen productions and thickness of the skin’s living cell layers. It has anti-inflammatory properties.

The Peeling Process

Day 1: Immediately after the first application, the skin is red but not unsightly.

Day 2: Second peel is applied

Day 3: The skin takes on a brownish tinge. It looks like a skier who has forgotten to protect themselves from the sun and ended up with a severe sunburn. The difference, of course, is that while the sunburn destroys the skin, the peeling restores it.

Day 4: The skin’s brownish color darkens to its maximum intensity on the fourth day and the skin may begin to peel.

Day 5: The skin begins to peel. Allow this to happen naturally and do not interfere with the peeling process.

Day 6: The skin begins to peel. Allow this to happen naturally and do not interfere with the peeling process.

Day 7: The remaining skin is removed by a therapist in a sterile environment. The peeling is safe and controlled and the skin is never raw.

Am I allowed to wear makeup after treatment?

You will not be allowed to wear cosmetics or any other product for one week besides the soothing cream that is provided to you. You may use an approved SPF

Does it hurt?

This peel only tingles for about the first 10 minutes, then the feeling completely goes away. Pain is only about a 3 out of 10, nothing that is going to make you feel uncomfortable.
