What is a Bio Peel?
A Bio Peel is a herbal peeling, in which a mix of herbs, seaweed and algae are applied to the skin. These herbs and maritime extracts encourage the skin to regenerate, causing the skin to repair itself from within, with a visible result.
By means of a massage, the beneficial substances from the herbal mix are optimally absorbed by the skin. Immediately after the treatment, the skin is deeply cleansed and the skin feels very smooth and soft.
To intensively improve the skin and treat long-term results, you can choose to do the treatment in a cure. A course consists of a minimum of 3-6 treatments with an interval of 7-14 days. After the course, the result can be maintained by repeating the Bio Peel every 4-6 weeks.
To improve the following skin problems, we recommend treatment in a cure:
- Skin with pimples
- The skin that has dealt with pimples (acne scars)
- Wrinkle formation
- Coarse pores
- Sagging skin
- Hyperpigmentation, sun damage
What happens after a Bio Peel?
A few days after the treatment, the skin may flake slightly. The degree of flaking varies per person and depends on the skin type. The skin often feels a bit drier during this period. A full cream or skin oil keeps the skin supple and ensures that flakes are less visible.
- The bio peel has the following contraindications
- Viral infections (including cold sores), the infection can spread
- Open wounds
- Actinic keratosis
- Retinoids (including Viramine A acid, discontinue for 6 weeks)
- There must be at least 14 days between a botox treatment and a Bio Peel. The nutrients from the Bio Peel detoxify the skin, but also the Botulinum Toxin (the active substance in Botox)
- There must be at least 14 days between waxing and a Bio Peel.
- There must be at least 6 weeks between the following treatments and a Bio Peel, provided they are applied to the same area where you will apply the Bio Peel: Microdermabrasion, strong chemical peeling (TCA, Jessner, Blue Peel), IPL and laser treatment.
- Pregnancy is not a contraindication, but we do not recommend it. Due to the changed hormone system, the skin can react very differently than expected.
- The skin is not specifically photosensitized by a Bio Peel, as is the case with a glyco-acid peeling. Summer is therefore not a contraindication for the Bio Peel.
- Despite the fact that the skin does not become specifically photosensitive due to the Bio Peel, the skin does lose a number of dead skin cell layers. As a result, the skin is thinner and less well protected against UV radiation. To prevent burning, the customer should always use UV protection for at least 7 days after the Bio Peel treatment.
