Why The Blueberry Peel Is Still Our Most Effective Treatment


We're not supposed to have favourites, but our signature Blueberry Peel by Cosmedix is undoubtedly our favourite treatment, ever, period.

Combining Lactic Acid and Antioxidants, the Blueberry Peel has been an integral part of our treatment list for 15+ years, and remains one of our most popular treatments, with an average of 30 performed a week. So how has the Blueberry Peel retained its place as our signature treatment? Put simply, the results speak for themselves: 

"It's one of our favourite treatments here at The Clinic. It delivers amazing results with little downtime. It's great at reducing dullness in the skin, smoothing out any rough or dry texture, and brightening the skin. Plus, it's safe during pregnancy and breastfeeding." - Chantal Child, Registered Nurse

Behind the instant glow of the Blueberry Peel is a sophisticated chirally-correct chemical process.

The power of the Blueberry Peel is in an understanding of the skin on a molecular level. This is The Clinic's point of difference with the Chemical Peels we perform and other 'facials'.

Chirality is used to describe the natural left or right 'spin' all molecules in the body have. The skin has millions of chiral receptors controlling the actions of the cells they are associated with. When an ingredient of skincare meets a receptor, the process is extraordinarily precise, and if a component has the wrong spin for a receptor (think square peg, round hole), things can go downhill. The Blueberry Peel has been chirally corrected (has the 'right' spin) to provide it's many benefits without unwanted pain, irritation or trauma to the skin. By ensuring the Blueberry Peel is chirally correct, the active ingredients resemble their natural state quite closely, and the body recognises this, allowing a Blueberry Peel to function better at a cellular level. 

It's the understanding of chirality as a scientific concept that sets apart our registered nursing staff in their clinical practice. Our treatments are corrective in nature, hence the reason we refer to them as 'Chemical Peels', not 'facials'. The Blueberry Peel is a medical strength peel, and in the hands of our nurses, is one of the keys to brighter, clearer and fresher skin. A teaspoon of the Blueberry Peel will break down the epidermal layer of the skin through a process of physical and enzymatic exfoliation. Next, AHA lactic acid will work its magic, gently breaking down dead skin cells in the epidermis for skin that is soft to the touch.

And if you want to step it up a notch? Another benefit of the Blueberry Peel is that it is the perfect first step or base layer to more advanced treatments. We pair our Blueberry Peel with HydraFacial for the ultimate in clean, fresh skin, or with IPL for dramatic improvements to pigmentation. 

At The Clinic, we do not take a one-size-fits-all approach to your skin. Our nursing staff are experts in discerning the individual needs of our clients and can mix and match additional Peels to tailor your Clinic experience to your skin.

Sensitive or reactive skin? You may be a candidate for The Benefit Peel. Based in an ascorbic acid formulation to be less irritating, the Benefit Peel uses Vitamin C to reduce redness and inflammation, while exfoliating using Salicylic Acid.

Prone to breakouts? One or two areas of deep, underlying congestion may mean layering spot treatments with our potent Detox Problem Skin Peel (Lactic and Salicylic Acid with Retinol).
