What can I expect from the Contour Peel?

The Contour Peel™ by Medico Beauty is an innovative dermal remodelling technique that harnesses the skin's natural healing abilities, resulting in a naturally, vibrant and healthy complexion.

The treatment promotes skin repair, restoration, renewal, and protection by boosting production of collagen and elastin. These key proteins are essential for firm, supple skin as they help connect the dermis and epidermis

The treatment promotes skin repair, restoration, renewal, and protection by boosting production of collagen and elastin. These key proteins are essential for firm, supple skin as they help connect the dermis and epidermis

The Contour Peel™ promotes the release of numerous growth factors to help restore this connection and address other skin problems. This dermal remodelling technique also helps to normalize the behaviour of pigment-producing cells in the skin and encourages the formation of a healthy skin barrier function to protect against ultraviolet radiation and free radicals that cause premature ageing.

What skin conditions can the Contour Peel™ address?

The Contour Peel™ by Medico Beauty can effectively treat a range of skin problems, including:

  • Photo-damaged Skin
  • Pigmentation
  • Melasma
  • Scarring
  • Acne
  • Sensitive skin
  • Dry skin
  • Rosacea.

 

What is the normal treatment outcome?

The Contour Peel™ by Medico Beauty provides a controlled inflammatory effect that facilitates the removal of damaged tissue while promoting the production of the correct type of new collagen and elastin fibres.

The solutions used for the Contour Peel™ result in either very mild, or visible “micro peeling” on the third of fourth day, followed by visibly brighter, more vibrant skin. As the treatment enhances the production of collagen and elastin, the Contour Peel™ also results in healthier, firmer, smoother looking skin.

Should I expect discomfort?

The Contour Peel™ was designed by Medico Beauty to improve skin integrity while offering an enjoyable treatment experience. Using a combination of micro needling and natural peel solutions, the Contour Peel™ achieves impressive results by controlling needle penetration to the precise depth at which micro-injuries trigger a natural healing cascade.

This innovative dermal remodelling therapy is an effective way of restoring healthy, vibrant skin with no downtime and minimal discomfort.

How is the Contour Peel™ by Medico Beauty different to other skin treatments?

The Contour Peel™ by Medico Beauty is a non-traumatic approach to Advanced Collagen Induction Therapy. The treatment was designed on the basis of research demonstrating the efficacy of a specific micro needling technique shown to stimulate Type I collagen needed for the repair of healthy skin.

Other dermal needling techniques can cause significant inflammation that promotes Type III Collagen production, resulting in scar formation. These aggressive skin treatments also pose a risk of pain and excessive Injury to the skin.

The Contour Peel™ uses an exclusive micro needling technique to achieve a higher concentration of micro channels that are more evenly distributed, compared to traditional micro needling methods using a manual roller. These micro channels ensure optimal product absorption and stimulation of growth factors, while dramatically reducing discomfort.

Dermal needling is a catalyst for change in the skin, giving it a role to play in healing the skin and addressing a variety of skin problems.

Are there any contraindications for the Contour Peel™?

Although the Contour Peel™ does not compromise the skin, due to its controlled inflammatory effect, it is sensible to avoid the use of chemical peels if any of the following apply:

  • Pregnancy and/or breastfeeding
  • Allergy to aspirin
  • Irritated, wounded, or sunburnt skin
  • Active cold sores or warts in the treatment area
  • Autoimmune disease or immunocompromised condition
