Containing Lactic and Salicylic Acid to increase cell turnover, remove dead surface cells and soften the skin, the Benefactor Resurfacing Peel by Cosmedix is an exfoliating Level 1 Face Peel. Packed with antioxidants from cherry, blueberry and pineapple, this peel also helps with ageing, problem, oily and thickened skins.
We start with a thorough cleanse of the face before applying the Benefactor Peel. The peel stays on for 5-10 minutes to allow the active ingredients to be absorbed into the skin. The peel is then soaked off and a rich moisturiser is applied. The whole treatment takes 30 minutes.
Instantly softer, brighter skin. The Benefactor Peel results in a clearer complexion with no downtime. Best results are seen after 48 hours.
There is no downtime required for the Benefactor Peel and you can resume normal activities immediately. However you should avoid strenuous exercise and/or swimming for 24 hours.
We always recommend the use of sunscreen to prevent sun damage to the skin. Sunscreen with SPF 30 or above should be used daily. If you are under the sun for prolonged periods of time, sunscreen needs to be reapplied at least once every two hours.
On a rare occasion, a slight redness may occur which subsides within a few hours.
Due to the ingredients used, this treatment is not suitable during pregnancy or breastfeeding.
Your skin will be noticeably smoother and your complexion clearer after a single treatment. Best results come from a course of 3 treatments, 4-6 weeks apart.
You may experience a tingling or tightening sensation in the skin, but no pain.
Whilst we have seen amazing results from this treatment, please know that results vary and we cannot make guarantees. We recommend coming and speaking to our registered nurses for an in-depth consultation. They will discuss in detail how the treatment works, whether it will be right for your skin type and the expected results in line with your skin goals.
