Acne & Acne Scars Oily Skin - Radiance Peel Facetherapy
What is Radiance Peel Facetherapy?
Radiance Peel Facetherapy is a customised treatment using a unique blend of gentle skin peels containing fruit acids that effectively exfoliate the skin, unclog the pores, treat acne scar, oiliness, blackheads and improve the overall texture of facial skin. This is a popular treatment for those who are looking to lighten pigment marks, even out skin tone and improve the appearance of wrinkles.
At Prive, we have a variety of gentle peels to suit your skin and needs, such as Alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) or Beta-hydroxy acid (BHA) peels. Our consultant will analyse your skin and lifestyle before deciding on which peel suits you best.
Glycolic acid (derived from sugar cane), lactic acid (from yoghurt milk), citric acid (citrus fruits) and phytic acid (from rice) are examples of AHA peels. AHA peels are ideal for those with dry skin because they function as humectants causing the skin to hold onto water. AHA peels are also good for those who has sensitive skin as it helps to increase skin barrier function.
BHA peels also known as salicylic acid is derived from willow ark, wintergreen leaves and sweet birch. BHA peels exhibits anti-inflammatory properties which are good for those with inflamed acne skin conditions. BHA peels is also more efficient in penetrating the sebaceous material in the hair follicle and exfoliate the pores.
How Does It Work?
The treatment starts off with a comfortable and soothing welcome massage followed by a customised peel applied onto your face. Once the acid from the peel has penetrated into the skin, the acid softens and sloughs off the top layer of skin cells, dissolves the blackheads, encouraging exfoliation of skin and unclogging of pores. Removing the top layer of the skin, allows the healthier skin cells to come through. This treatment is also ideal for those with oily skin as the acid helps to reduce sebum secretion, which is another way to reduce acne. The treatment ends off with a customised mask, allowing the skin to rest and regenerate.

Safety & Side Effects
Radiance Peel Facetherapy is a safe, non-invasive treatment. There is no significant downtime and can be done over your lunch time and return to work on the same day. However, subtle changes in the skin can only be seen with each peel. It is the cumulative benefits of the peels that yield the most noticeable changes in the skin.
