Pigmentation is just not what most people want to see on their skin. There are some options to reduce pigmentation or sun spots, like laser, cryotherapy (freezing the pigment) and skin needling, but there is some downtime and awkward time with those treatments. So we went looking for a treatment without having to change up our daily routine.
Over at Dermal Distinction, we love the Cosmedix Timeless peel. It is the most potent Vitamin A based peel around, and it does it’s job of losing the pigment with ease. So we decided to review the Cosmedix Timeless peel ourselves.
During Summer our skin can really pick up lots of pigmentation that can be difficult to cover with makeup. These dark patches are the result of damaged cells in our skin, which cause age spots and uneven skin tone.
Obviously wearing a great sunscreen is the perfect prevention for this, but this does not mean that the age spots will just vanish.
The Cosmedix Timeless peel contains Retinol (Vitamin A), which is the powerhouse of anti-ageing, as well as Lactic Acid. Both ingredients work to shed the dead skin cells, lifting out impurities, dark melanin deposits, as well as improving the skin surface remarkably.
The peel does not sting or feel ‘hot’, like some treatments can. The main benefits are:
- Softens fine lines and corrects imperfections.
- Increases cell turnover for clearer, brighter skin.
- A results driven treatment that works deeper in the skin.
During the treatment, we start with a thorough cleanse of the face before applying the Timeless Peel. The peel stays on for 5-10 minutes to allow the active ingredients to be absorbed into the skin. The peel is then soaked off and a rich moisturiser is applied. The whole treatment takes 30 minutes.
The treatment is just $210, and for a limited time, we will provide a complimentary Societe eye mask.
