At Southern Cosmetics, we offer a range of chemical peels, facial infusions and galvanic facials to help ward off the signs of ageing and truly nourish your skin. We also provide skin analyses and skin care advice, so that you can keep up the good work at home!

Chemical peels exfoliate by using substances such as alpha-hydroxy acids (fruit acids) or beta-hydroxy acids (salicylic acid) to help improve the skin’s appearance. There is little or no discomfort and minimal downtime. Stronger peels may cause mild redness and peeling.

Recommended treatments: Usually a series of peels is required, and peels can be combined with microdermabrasion, laser treatment, and injectable treatments.

Dermaceutic Peels

The Mask Peel: For oily skin, dilated pores and excess sebum. It purifies the epidermis, tightens pores, brightens a dull complexion, regulates oily skin and dilated pores. Will help prevent and treat acne.

The Milk Peel: For the appearance of fine lines, dull complexion and loss of tone. Restores a radiant complexion, stimulates the epidermis, regulates oily skin and dilated pores, improves fine lines and wrinkles, evens skin tone, and boosts the effectiveness of daily skin care practices.

The Mela Peel: For the appearance of pigment spots, epidermal melasma and post-inflammatory pigmentation. Reduces the appearance of melasma and pigment spots, promotes homogeneous complexion, improves skin radiance and brightness.

Obagi Blue Peel Radiance

Obagi Blue Peel Radiance offers a unique blend of acids to provide a gentle but effective peel, resulting in tighter, smoother, brighter looking skin after just one treatment. It can also be used to improve conditions such as acne, scarring, photo-damage and melasma. The icing on the cake is that there is virtually no peeling with this treatment, so you can pop in during a lunch break and walk out looking radiant and refreshed!

Osmosis Retinaldehyde Infusions

Retinaldehyde is a Vitamin A derivative that promotes cellular turnover and helps reduce the signs of ageing. With the Osmosis Retinaldehyde Facial Infusion, our non-chemical peel, you’ll see results immediately and there is no peeling or down-time.

Galvanic Facial Infusions

Galvanic Infusions introduce serums 400 times deeper into the skin than a hand-applied product via an extremely safe and mild electric current. During the treatment, the skin is treated with a variety of vitamins, minerals and skin rejuvenation ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C. These enriching ingredients reach the outermost layer of the skin, the stratum corneum, which is the main barrier to serum transport.

Synergie AHA/BHA Peels 

We offer a Synergie Professional peel for every skin type, even the most sensitive! Your dermal therapist will tailor the treatment to your needs, selecting the strength of the active ingredients accordingly. For example, we may recommend a Lactic Acide Peel for sun-damaged skin or minor breakouts, a Salicylic Acid Peel for enlarged pores and blackheads, or a Gessner Peel with Kojic Acid for more severe sun damage, pigmentation and ageing concerns. Ongoing treatments can increase skin hydration, improve dullness, reduce breakouts, decrease the visibility of pores and lighten pigmentation.

Carbon Laser Facial

This is the perfect treatment to freshen up your look before a special event, and can be combined with laser toning. During the treatment, a layer of carbon is applied to the face via a lotion before we apply our Pastelle laser to the skin. As the laser moves across the skin, the carbon paste is gently vacuumed up, exfoliating the skin and removing any debris in the pores. Patients may feel a light, tingling sensation, and experience a mild, temporary redness afterwards.

The treatment improves:

  • * Pore size
  • * Active acne, scars and post-acne discolouration
  • * Skin tone and texture
  • * Collagen and elastin production
  • * The appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • * Overall complexion.

Erbium Laser Peel

Achieve a beautiful, polished, pearl-like glow with our Erbium Laser Peel. This light laser peel can be performed as part of our laser skin rejuvenation treatment, or on its own to improve the appearance of the skin. The light ablation reduces surface imperfections and improves the appearance of fine lines and pores. During this treatment, you will feel only mild discomfort. Expect to experience redness for a day, and dryness for up to a week after treatment.
