pH FORMULA SKIN RESURFACING
How does it work?
This is a very personalised system which can be adapted to suit your individual needs. Many people will have more than one skin issue for example some pigmentation and some age damage or some rosacea and some pigmentation. This programme moves away form the ‘one size fits all’ approach commonly used and allows us real flexibility to treat the conditions we see in a methodical effective manner.
Most of the pHformula skin resurfacing products are not timed, neutralised or removed from the skin. Instead they are self-neutralising and left on the skin with no fear of unpredictable prolonged effects.
The pre and post resurfacing support products are all formulated with the unique PH-DVC™ complex, which guarantees best possible results and maintenance of the skin during the pHformula resurfacing procedure.
pHformula is taking skin resurfacing to the next level, by introducing an “outside in” and “inside out” philosophy. Advanced dermatological skin resurfacing procedures working from the outside in, combined with powerful skin nutrition, working from the inside out provide the skin with the full benefits assisting in rapid skin restoration.
Within the system there are four individual pathways designed to target ageing, acne, chronic redness or rosacea, and pigmentation.
What is the procedure?
A consultation is required prior to any treatment to assess your individual skin concerns and formulate a treatment programme specific to you. Ideally using a prescribed skin preparation product for 2 weeks prior to your in-clinic treatments will ensure the best results.
Your in-clinic treatment will take approximately 30 - 60 minutes depending on your prescribed treatment plan. We first check your skin sensitivity levels before applying the appropriate pH Formula resurfacing solution. Once the resurfacing solution is applied we monitor your comfort levels and re-apply further layers of solution if appropriate. There is no risk of unpleasant side-effects as most of the pH Formula resurfacing solutions are self-neutralising.
Possible side effects
There can be some residual redness immediately following the treatment, which will quickly subside. There will be very little to no peeling of the epidermis. Your skin may feel a little tight following the treatment. An after care product can be recommended to maintain hydration of the skin.
A broad spectrum sunscreen of at least 30 SPF must be worn throughout your course of treatments, winter and summer alike. We use and recommend Heliocare SPF.
Avoid sun exposure for the whole period of your course of treatments. Avoid treatments if your skin is broken, healing scars, contagious skin diseases (Impetigo, Scabies, Herpes) skin rashes or irritations that have not been diagnosed, pregnancy, breast feeding, conjunctivitis, recent skin treatments such as microdermabrasion, Laser, waxing or other heat treatments within 5 days of your pH Formula treatment.
