Anyone who regularly reads my blogs knows that I think it is important to take good care of my skin. That is why I regularly visit the Van Rosmalen Kliniek for an effective skin treatment. One of the most special skin treatments that the Van Rosmalen Kliniek offers is the Cosmo Peel Forte. This peeling is a real all-rounder that helps tighten the skin, shrinks coarse pores and stimulates the production of collagen. Thanks to the Cosmo Peel Forte, your skin looks on average 5 years younger after one treatment. Not bad, right? Read on quickly for all the ins and outs of this unique peeling
What is a peel?
A peeling is a form of exfoliation in which the top layer of the skin is “peeled” as it were. Hence the name peeling. This is done with the help of alpha hydroxy and beta hydroxy acids, which I wrote about in a previous blog. Alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) is a collective name for organic acids that stimulate the exfoliation of the skin and accelerate the cell cycle. Examples include glycolic acid and lactic acid. Beta hydroxy acid (BHA) is a collective name for a special type of organic acids, of which only salicylic acid is used in peels.
During a chemical or cosmetic peel, the skin is exfoliated. The acids from the peeling penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin. The skin responds to a peeling by activating various natural repair mechanisms. This process removes dead skin cells, ensures skin renewal, cell renewal and skin firming. A great boost for your skin!
What does the Cosmo Peel Forte do?
The Cosmo Peel Forte is an extremely powerful peeling that strengthens, improves, smoothes and tightens the skin. This medical peel contains the optimal mix of active ingredients: 20% TriChloroAcetic Acid (TCA), 10% Glycolic Acid and 10% Phenol. This innovative formula has been specially created to also combat deeper wrinkles, by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin in the deeper layers of the skin. Thanks to the ingredient Phenol, the skin is soothed during the treatment, so that you only experience a tingling sensation during the treatment. Due to the strength of the treatment, the Cosmo Peel Forte may only be performed once a year.
A lifting effect
The Cosmo Peel Forte has an enormous lifting effect; a real anti-age peeling. The treatment improves the skin structure and is also suitable for combating pigmentation spots, large pores and impurities. The peeling can be used for the entire face, but also for specific skin zones. For example, the peeling can be used to reduce wrinkles around the mouth or to prevent sagging of the skin around the eyes. The Cosmo Peel Forte can fade the wrinkles in these areas, and the lifting effect of the peeling can sometimes even postpone an eyelid correction.
The flaking process
During the treatment, the acids from the peeling act deeply on the skin to stimulate cell renewal. Immediately after the treatment, the skin is slightly red and swollen, which can last up to three days after the treatment. After this, the flaking process begins. This is not called a ‘process’ for nothing. The skin will completely renew itself, causing the old skin to peel. The flaking process occurs two or three days after treatment and lasts an average of seven to 14 days. After the old skin has shed, a new, healthy and tighter skin remains.
After the peeling, the skin is more even, fine lines and wrinkles are reduced and the skin feels a lot tighter. The Cosmo Peel Forte already gives amazing results in the short term, but it doesn’t stop there. The benefits of the peeling continue for a long time. A few months after the treatment you will experience a lifting effect and you will see that the skin is indeed tightened. Thanks to the Cosmo Peel Forte, the production of collagen and elastin is strengthened in such a way that it continues to work for at least six to more than twelve months after the treatment. The skin sometimes looks up to five years younger after this treatment.
Preparation & skin type
The Cosmo Peel Forte is a powerful skin treatment thanks to the aforementioned mix of active ingredients. Because these ingredients are so powerful, some preparation of the skin is necessary before you can undergo the Cosmo Peel Forte. You can prepare the skin for the peeling by using skincare products a few weeks in advance that contain active ingredients, just like the Cosmo Peel Forte. You can also prepare your skin by means of microneedling treatments. During a consultation, a skin therapist will be happy to explain how you can best prepare your skin for the treatment. The preliminary stage for a Cosmo Peel Forte treatment also differs per person and is therefore well assessed. In addition, unfortunately not every skin is suitable for the Cosmo Peel Forte. But in general, anyone who has firm or sebum-rich skin can undergo this anti-aging treatment. However, it is not wise to undergo a Cosmo Peel Forte treatment with thin or very fragile skin.
Have you become curious about the Cosmo Peel Forte and do you want to know whether this peeling is suitable for you? Then go to a good clinic with certified skin therapists and get advice during a consultation.
