Cosmetic procedures increased 304 percent from 1997 to 2001 in the UK. Nearly 8.5 million cosmetic surgical and non-surgical procedures were performed in 2001 an increase of 48 percent compared to the previous year`s total of 5.7 million.
This increase could be explained by advanced non-surgical procedures, such as Easy Peel from Euromedical, a facial skin peel used by dermatologists for the rejuvenation of aged and flawed skin, which cover the middle ground between surgery and living with skin imperfections.
Easy Peel causes even, controlled shedding of several layers of the skin, revealing the fresh layer of new skin underneath that remains untouched by ageing, stretchmarks, acne and cellulite. The treatment works on severe imperfections such as lines, mottled skin colour and tone, brown sun spots and superficial wrinkles and skin texture flaws.
The Skin Cell Process
As the skin is a living organ, made up of millions of cells (thousands of which die and are replaced by new cells from below the surface everyday), this natural process is also a slow one that does not allow skin to shed dark spots, sun damage, or a dull, lifeless complexion. Easy Peel speeds up the renewal process, shedding the top layers of skin, allowing the cells to naturally heal and renew the skin within 30 days.
How It Works
Easy Peel is performed by a dermatologist or surgeon is a medical peel and can only be carried out by trained specialists in professional environments. It’s not available in the high street and should not be confused with very mild and gentle glycolic peels available from beauty therapists. Before the treatment begins, a topical anaesthetic cream is used to control the discomfort otherwise encountered during application of The Peel. The skin is carefully cleansed, de-greased and a light topical anaesthetic may be given. Then a solution of Easy Peel is carefully and evenly applied to the entire face. This process takes 15 minutes. Once the peel is complete, the skin is most receptive to absorb the ingredients within post-peeling cream. The active ingredients within post-peeling cream helps the skin renew. The cream contains vitamin A to accelerate production of collagen, Selenium to accelerate healing of skin, vitamin E to scavenge free radicals, vitamin H to help skin grow, and vitamin C to help repair skin.
Easy Peel may cause significant swelling, depending on results required and the condition of the skin. This swelling should diminish after the first week. Skin peeling and scaling develops over the course of several days. The skin revealed by this peeling process is softer, firmer, smoother, line-free and more evenly pigmented. Easy Peel treatments, at intervals of one to two months, may be necessary to achieve the desired results. It can be used on all types of skin from normal to greasy or thick and can also be applied safely and effectively on Black and Asian skin.
