Why should I offer Metabolic Peels?

Chemical peels offer aestheticians and advanced skin therapists a truly effective non surgical approach to treating a wide variety of skin conditions and concerns. The popularity of superficial to moderate depth in-clinic and salon peeling treatments have risen considerably over the last decade. Level 1 & 2 Metabolic Peels offer results-driven treatments without downtime to the client. When understood and used correctly chemical peels can effectively treat a number of skin conditions and concerns over time including:

  • Premature Ageing
  • Sun Damage
  • Pigmentation
  • Uneven Skin Texture
  • Acne
  • Enlarged Pores
  • Acne Scarring
  • Congestion

Level 1 & 2 Metabolic Peels can be performed without any prior prep or pre-peel priming. Making them an excellent choice for clients who are not yet committed to a long term home care programme. Often clients who are not ready to commit to investing in products still wish to have results driven treatments. If you’re only able to offer peels that require prep, then you risk losing the client and ultimately not being able to provide the results they are looking for.

Equally Metabolic Peels work by stimulating renewal within the skin using purified acids and encapsulated Retinol. This is a much more sophisticated approach to skin peeling, compared to relying on acids to burn and wound the skin.

Note: Level 1 & 2 indicates the depth of peel, ranging from superficial to moderate depth peel. It does not indicate a level of qualification.
