Peels are one of the most effective and least invasive paths to better skin. Specially formulated with gentle acids and other pure ingredients, they clarify and beautify by removing dead surface layers, enabling skin to heal and renew itself from within. In order to receive peels that are truly effective, skincare devotees must go to a physician’s office or med-spa to receive a peel with sufficient strength to deliver maximum results. With approximately $36.5 million Americans unemployed paying $125.00 or more a month for an in-office peel is a luxury most cannot afford. In addition, due to COVID there are many who do not feel comfortable having a procedure performed that entails being inside with no mask on with an aesthetician inches away from their face.
Although a plethora of skincare companies offer versions of peels in a pad form, most offer low concentrations of the active formulas and high PH’s that render the formulas less effective. What’s more, the method of applying these “peels” is not the same as what is done in a doctor’s office or med spa. Perfect Imageis one of the first beauty companies, whose products were formulated by a chemist, to deliver custom peels to your doorstep that provide the same efficacy as in-office peels at a mere fraction of the price.
Perfect Image Glycolic Gel Peels come in three strengths: 10%, 30% and 50%. They retail for $29.95 for 30 ML for approximately 15-30 peel applications. The average use is 1-2 ML per treatment. If you are new to peels, start with 10% every other day and work up to once a day. Gradually you can work up to the stronger strengths.
Perfect Image believes that anyone can achieve visible, lasting results by using the correct products in a systematic way. The process begins with identifying your concerns, learning your skin type, and discovering the products and regimen that work best for you.
The peel comes in a liquid gel form in a “tincture” bottle and are left on the face for a maximum of 1 minute if it’s your first treatment. You will feel a tingle(or even burn) and your skin may be red for 10 minutes or so. Then, users typically slowly increase the contact time on the skin and or number of layers on subsequent treatments. Layering is only recommended for those who are comfortable with peels or have more experience and have used the peel several times without complications. You can continue layering up to 2-5 layers depending on peel and skin tolerance. Perfect Image always recommends that its customers build up a tolerance before layering.
The products come with clear instructions to spot test on a small patch of skin such as under the chin or an area close to the treatment area, before applying to the face. Once it is determined that the skin reacts well to the product, it can be used on the face, shoulders, decollete, and tops of the hands.
I’ve been using the 10% Glycolic Gel Peel one to two times a week and am starting to notice my skin looking clearer and the texture is getting smoother. Do expect the peel to burn or sting a bit. Remember these peels are formulated by a chemist and are not drug store skincare with watered-down ingredients.
