Skin Peels. Why they’re no longer a taboo treatment!

Peel. Just say the word and many reel at the thought…

Most 20 - 40 year old urbanites / 90’s tv aficionados will be familiar with the classic scene in Sex and the City when Samantha Jones is left ferociously red faced after a chemical peel. Despite the fact the episode was aired over a decade ago (get with it people!), many shy away from peels - avoiding at all costs. Needless to say, they’re missing out!

What not to expect from a peel at Brazilian Beauty - sorry Samantha!

Time for some home truths. Not all peels are the same. Very few will actually cause your skin to shed like Ms Jones’. The red raw look is so out. Samantha’s skin was the result of a treatment called a TCA peel.

A TCA Peel, or Trichloroacetic Acid Peel, is a highly concentrated, intense form of chemical peel which can range from 8% to 30% in strengths. Typically, TCA peels penetrate much deeper than AHA and BHA peels i.e. glycolic, lactic and salicylic acids. TCA peels are serious peels and come with up to 10 days worth of downtime - so clear your calendars Beauties!

Alternatively, AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid) and BHA (Beta Hydroxy Acid) found in our ASI Pro Peels offer a much gentler exfoliation with excellent results and absolutely zero downtime. They can also treat AOS (Acronym Overkill Syndrome). ASI Pro Peels are tailored for different skin types, so if you’re worried about any post treatment sensitivity a Sensitive Peel may be for you. There are also Youthful/Acne Peels and Mature Skin Peels targeted for more specific skin concerns.

Unlike harsher, highly intense chemical peels, ASI Pro peels offer salon professional exfoliation and skin renewal for glowing skin without any fuss, irritation or uncomfortable red-faced scenarios. They’re not just for ageing skins either - though they do work wonders for mature skin types! Many clients looking for that quick fix to lighten, brighten and refresh their skins turn to an ASI Pro Peel to look and feel gorgeous in a flash!
