α Hydroxy-Acids Gel

Exfoliating Combo | Stimulate Cell Turnover

£ 40.00


Product Information

Chemical exfoliation is far superior to abrasive exfoliation with skin scrubs and electronic devices as it penetrates deeper without using force. AHAs (alpha-hydroxy acids – lactic, glycolic and pyruvic acids) are abundant in natural exfoliating remedies such as milk, citric fruits and sugar cane.

Regular chemexfoliation keeps the skin texture smooth, prevents pores from getting clogged with dead skin and sebum (oil) leading to spots and breakouts. Exfoliation also sheds excess melanin from the skin improving tone and radiance. Increased cell turnover/shedding leads to healthier, deeper skin layers producing more collagen and elastin. Dead skin is dry and requires excess moisturisers which can, in turn, lead to other side effects from moisturisers.

Exfoliate is a wash off formulation at low pH for quick efficacy. Washing off allows second-line products (Vitamin C, Retinoids & Peptides) without multiple layering. Using AHAs along with other actives has proven to increase their penetration & results.

Have you heard of Trout/ Salmon Sperm DNA treatment? 🧬

Polynucleotides are derived from purified Salmon/ Trout sperm DNA.
Polynucleotides are the gold standard in skin regeneration, utilizing ultra-purified DNA fractions to stimulate natural fibroblast production. This boosts collagen levels by up to 47% and thickens the epidermis by up to 52% in just 23 days. 

lt enhances skin texture, reduces fine lines, targets under-eye bags, restore firmness and elasticity while protecting against cellular damage.

Typically, 2-3 treatments spaced out to 2-4 weeks apart are recommended for optimal results.

The foundational steps for skin rejuvenation in medical aesthetics begin with initiating retinoid use, followed by a skin peel, then microneedling, and finally PRP treatments. Starting with retinoids activates the skin to produce more collagen, making subsequent treatments like microneedling even more effective.

The aging process in the face generally includes a decrease in volume, which causes the skin to sag. Using dermal fillers to replenish this lost volume can successfully elevate and adjust the drooping skin. It’s important to note that facial aging usually follows a sequence of volume reduction leading to skin sagging. Contrary viewpoints on social media regarding this can often be surprising. other treatment videos will be revealed over the next few days.

Last year, we shared an update about a client who had received fillers from us. Previously, she was having regular Botox only. We’re now excited to show you the results after almost 1 year; she’s had Botox in the meantime. The combination of both treatments has yielded fantastic results #wrinklefree #dermalfillers
At CosmeDocs, we take a comprehensive approach to address under-eye circles, which are often more noticeable from the late 20s onwards. These aesthetic concerns are compounded by the emergence of dips and grooves leading to a sunken mid-face appearance. Our tailored tear trough treatments incorporate both cannula and needle techniques. This dual approach allows for precise augmentation and correction, targeting the various layers of the under-eye area to smooth out dips and grooves effectively. It’s not just about enhancement but restoring a natural, refreshed look, focusing on meticulous volume replacement to ensure seamless continuity and harmony between all facial compartments.

Injecting too much filler into the vermillion border of young clients can lead to unwanted consequences like border spread, fibrosis, and a loss of natural definition. 👄✨

However, in older clients experiencing natural border loss, small, strategic additions can enhance their natural beauty gracefully. 💁‍♀️💉

Balance and expertise are key in achieving beautiful, age-appropriate results! 💖 #dermalfillertraining #aestheticmedicine #AgeGracefully #saynotorussianlips
