TIMELESS RETINOL PEEL
This anti-aging powerhouse peel contains retinol (Vitamin A), which stimulates collagen, elastin production, and cellular turnover to improve tone and texture. This peel works well for treating fine lines and wrinkles as well as photo damage by brightening, tightening and perfecting the skin. Can I get a hell yes!
Note: your skin must be prepped with one of our Vitamin A serums prior to having a Timeless Retinol Peel.

WHAT ARE THE RISKS OF THE Timeless Retinol PEEL?
You may experience some flushing which will subside within a few hours. You may also experience some dryness or light peeling for two to five days post treatment, which is normal due to the increase in cellular turnover. This can be easily covered with makeup.
This treatment is not suitable during pregnancy or while breastfeeding as it contains Retinol.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS DO I NEED?
After a single treatment your skin will be notably smoother and brighter, however best results are seen from three treatments, four to six weeks apart.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING MY TREATMENT?
We start with a double cleanse of the face before applying the Timeless Retinol Peel. The peel stays on the skin for five to ten minutes to allow the active ingredients to be absorbed. The peel is then soaked off and serums and a rich moisturiser is applied. All Advanced Medi-Peels include customised clinical masks and a tailored LED treatment, which stimulates collagen production and kills the bacteria (Propionibacterium) that live below the surface of the skin, causing acne. 45-minute treatment
WILL IT HURT?
You may feel a tingling or tightening sensation in the skin, but no pain.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER MY TREATMENT?
Results are best seen between one and five days following your treatment and have a cumulative effect. Your skin will be notably brighter and smoother, with an overall improvement in tone and texture.
IS THERE ANY PRE OR POST CARE?
Pre-treatment Your skin must be prepped with one of our Vitamin A serums prior to having a Timeless Retinol Peel.
Post-treatment There is no downtime post peel, which means you can continue with normal activity, however, avoid strenuous activity (ie. HIIT training, rock climbing or mountain biking) and swimming for the next 24 hours.
We always recommend the use of sunscreen to prevent damage to the skin. Ensure SPF 30 or above is applied and remember to re-apply throughout the day (every 2 hours).
All Advanced Medi-Peels include customised clinical masks, Cosmedix Timeless Retinol Peel and a tailored LED treatment.
