Refresh and boost your skin

At ANDRESA, we use a wide range of advanced skin resurfacing formulas to boost and maintain optimal skin health and function.

DermaQuest advanced skin resurfacers are often referred to as mild peels. This is due to the superficial exfoliating nature of the treatment.

Skin resurfacers have been formulated to suit all skin types and to meet the needs of each individual.

Gentle exfoliating fruit enzymes and mild fruit acids act to refine and exfoliate the upper most layers of the skin. The gentle nature of these sophisticated formulas generally means that there is little-to-no downtime following treatment and can often be applied as a pre-special occasion skin treatment for radiant skin.

Advanced skin resurfacers treatment benefits:

  • Clearer, smoother complexion
  • Refines fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improves skin texture and tone
  • Repairs sun damage
  • Improves pigmentation and scars

What our clients say

Thank you for seeing me at such short notice and for your reassurance. I was feeling very anxious about my skin so being able to see someone quickly was such a relief. Sue, the receptionist, was so helpful and came back to me very quickly to confirm one of the therapists would see me after the clinic had finished that day. Cannot thank these guys enough.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) about ADVANCED SKIN RESURFACERS Treatment

What are Peels and Resurfacers?

Peels and resurfacers are used to exfoliate and intensely rejuvenate the skin of the face, décolletage and hands, producing long-lasting improvements in skin texture and restoring radiance.

How do they work?

Tailored formulations can be used for various skin concerns, but in essence, resurfacers and peels use acids of varying types and concentrations to increase cell turnover, exfoliate dead and damaged skin, unclog pores, regulate oil production and reduce inflammation. The overall effect of this is an improvement in the appearance of damaged skin such as lines, wrinkles and acne scarring, and hyperpigmentation from sun damage. Fresher skin is exposed, improving dullness and reducing enlarged pores and uneven skin tone. Nourishing ingredients are also incorporated into the treatment to lift, tighten and plump the skin, providing a more youthful complexion and long-lasting radiance.

How many treatments will I need?

Your practitioner will provide a treatment plan, but a typical program would be three to six treatments at fortnightly intervals, with a maintenance treatment every month.

Are there any side effects or is there any downtime?

The treatments are usually well-tolerated, but the skin can be red and swollen immediately afterwards, with peeling for up to seven days, depending on the intensity of the acid used.

Will the results be seen straight away?

Once the skin has recovered from the post-treatment peeling, it will look fresher, rejuvenated and more youthful. Results will continue to improve with further treatments.
