What is the treatment:

An algae peel involves the application of a peel containing extracts from various types of algae. Algae are rich in minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants, providing exfoliation and hydration to the skin. This treatment aims to revitalize and nourish the skin, leaving it with a refreshed, radiant appearance and improved texture. 

Which areas can be treated:

  • Body
  • Face

How long is the treatment:

45 to 60 minutes.

Pre-care Instructions:

7 to 10 days before - Avoid Retinols, AHA, BHA and excessive sun exposure.

2 weeks before - Avoid waxing

Inform your therapist about any skin sensitivities. The skin may need to be prepped for at least 2 weeks prior if the skin is very dry.

How will the procedure be performed:

Algae peel treatments involve the following steps:

Cleansing: The skin is cleansed to remove impurities.

Application of Algae Peel: The algae peel mixture is applied to the skin.

Massage: For light peeling & sensitive skin, rub in for 1 to 2 minutes. For medium peeling & sensitive skin, rub for 5 minutes. For deep peeling, rub in with massage movements for 10 to 15 minutes. 

Duration: The peel is left on as a face mask for 5 to 10 minutes. 

Removal: The peel is gently removed with warm water and the skin is cleansed well.

Post-Treatment Care: The Post Treatment gel is applied and spread evenly over the skin. 

Sun Protection: The skin needs extra protection after a skin treatment. We always end the procedure off with applying a broad-spectrum high SPF 50 sunscreen.

Post-care Instructions:

For 2 days - Avoid touching the treated area. Avoid excessive sun exposure. Avoid using a cleanser, just rinse the area with water and apply post treatment gel followed by a broad-spectrum high SPF 50 sunscreen. Avoid exercise, sauna, steam room, swimming and hot showers.

From day 3 to 7 - Use a gentle non-acidic, non exfoliating cleanser, apply the post treatment gel followed by a broad-spectrum high SPF 50 sunscreen. Do not pick or pull the peeling skin, this can cause scarring and post inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

From day 7 - Stop using the post treatment gel. Toner, serums and moisturizers are introduced back slowly into the daily skin routine.

Peeling may occur on day 2 or 3 after the peel and can last for up to 7 days. Immediate glow and improved skin texture is noted as the new skin is revealed.
