Agera Skin Peels

Agera Rx peels represent a major advancement in the non-invasive treatment of ageing skin, acne and pigmentation. These unique no down time peels provide visible results without unsightly skin shedding, redness or irritation. The revolutionary proliferative peels created by Agera® are non-irritating, pain free and cause no down time from skin shedding, redness or irritation. These unique advanced skin  treatments cause significant stimulation of the fibroblasts deep within the skin to produce new collagen and elastin. This proliferative effect on the skin’s cells delivers many anti-ageing benefits without any unsightly skin shedding or redness. After only one session, the skin will look clearer, smoother and brighter. For maximum results a course of Agera® skin peels can be combined with medical microdermabrasion.

What does it contain?

The peels contain a unique combination of stable acids. The peels deliver a stable form of Salicylic, L-ascorbic and Lactic acid.

 Is this a superficial, medium or deep peel?

The depth of the peels can vary depending on the combination of peel utilised and the PH of the peel applied. It is recommended that the programme starts with a superficial peel and if and when needed the practitioner can move onto a deeper strength application.

 What skin problems does it claim to treat?

Agera Rx skin peels have been developed to treat ageing, acne and pigmentation.

Agera Rx anti-ageing peels stimulate deep within the skin to promote collagen and elastin production and help eliminate fine lines and wrinkles for a firmer, smoother and more radiant appearance.

Agera Rx acne peels rapidly bring acne under control and dramatically reduce the risk of future scarring. These peels also reduce blocked pores and redness associated with acne conditions.

Agera Rx pigmentation control peels penetrate the skin’s pigment cells to gently and effectively reduce the appearance of unwanted discolouration for a more even skin tone.
