If keeping a youthful complexion is important, Vitamin A should be at the top of your skin care list. From the age of 20, the skin’s dermis layer – the cushioning layer which is mainly collagen – reduces at 1% per year. As collagen reduces, wrinkles and lines begin to form and, over time, the skin begins to sag. Vitamin A, which also depletes
through intrinsic ageing and sun damage, is required to produce collagen.
New Zealand now has one of the worst rates of skin cancer in the world, therefore sun damage here is prevalent. This makes it more important than ever to use a medical strength Vitamin A to help preserve our skin.
At About Skin we recommend Xcell Medical Skincare Ultimate A or Iconic A Plus. These products are produced in a
top USA laboratory enabling clients to use high amounts of active ingredients without reactions or sensitivity. In line with this, we offer an incredible Vitamin A peel which has been our most popular peel for some five years. The Timeless peel is the USA’s number one medical peel due to excellent results and lack of down time. It contains 30% chirallycorrected L-Retinol A to generate immense activity in the skin, dramatically reducing the visible signs of ageing.
A highly effective dermis peel, it works to restore growth of healthy, young skin cells, increase cell turnover (collagen) and remove layers of dead skin. Timeless peel also works to increase the skin’s moisture level to give an age-defying, smooth textured complexion. The down period is minimal and it’s painless! This peel can even be done in your lunchtime. The price at About Skin is just $99; elsewhere in New Zealand, $200 to $350.
