COSMO PEEL & COSMO PEEL FORTE
What is a Cosmo peel?
A Cosmo Peel is a cosmetic procedure in which a TCA solution is applied on the skin to remove layers of dead skin cells and stimulate new skin growth, even out skin tone and give a smooth and fresh appearance. A Cosmo Peel can be used to treat rough and dry skin, acne, post inflammatory pigmentation, fine lines, sun damage and hormonal pigmentation.
What does the treatment involve?
During a Cosmo Peel treatment your skin will be thoroughly cleansed to remove any impurities or makeup. Your therapist will perform a thorough skin assessment before selecting the percentage peel that is most suitable for your skin. The Cosmo peel is applied to the treatment area using gauze and is then left on the skin for up to 12 hours before being removed with water at home. You will feel a tingling/prickling sensation in the first few minutes after the peel application, this will subside quickly.

Post care information
Immediately following a Cosmo peel treatment your skin will be lightly flushed. We recommend that you do not wet or apply makeup on the skin for 12 hours post treatment. Depending on the type of peel, you may experience mild through to severe skin shedding from day 2-14. We advise that you do not prematurely pick at or exfoliate the dead skin as this may cause scarring or post inflammatory pigmentation. Once the skin peeling is complete you will see a dramatic improvement in your skin’s complexion. Over the next four to six weeks the skin’s appearance will be enhanced further. The skin will look more vibrant, clearer, firmer, and healthier.
