Let’s debunk some myths about chemical peeling

Chemical peels have changed, in the past they used to cause redness, peeling and inflammation. At optiphi® we have changed all this. Here are some myths we would like to put to bed, especially regarding our Skin Rejuvenation Chemical Peels.

Myth 1: Your skin should “peel” after having a peel treatment
People assume that a chemical peel treatment was unsuccessful if their skin does not peel afterwards. Visible exfoliation doesn’t determine the efficacy of treatment. You may not know this but generally, healthy skin has less visible exfoliation. Exfoliation often takes place at the cellular level and is not always visible to the naked eye.

Typically, these patients will see little or no peeling initially, and then see sloughing after a few treatments. This is great news, as it means you benefit from increased cellular turnover but no longer need the social downtime.

Myth 2: My skin is too sensitive for a chemical peel
Chemical peels, like the name indicates, do contain chemicals but rest assured the active acids in the OPTIPHI chemical peels are natural.

  • Glycolic acid comes from sugar cane
  • Lactic acid from sour milk
  • Salicylic acid from wintergreen

This means that chemical peels will do wonders for all skin types, even sensitive skin! Everyone can benefit and enjoy refreshed texture, tone and complexion.

Myth 3: Chemical Peels Make your skin more sensitive to the sun
We can assure you that the OPTIPHI Skin Rejuvenation Treatment will not make you any more sensitive to sunlight than you were before you had the peel.  As long as you take the necessary precautions and remember to wear high quality sun block on a daily basis (especially during the next 4 to 6 weeks post peel).

This is simply to protect your fresh cells from new damage, and is our recommendation to everyone concerned with anti-aging regardless of whether you are undergoing chemical peeling or not.

Myth 4: Chemical peels leave your skin red and inflamed?
Contrary to what you may think, a chemical peel is no longer designed to leave your skin red, raw and burnt. By choosing a professional skin peeling system we prevent excessive inflammation and redness!
Our optiphi® therapists are all trained to treat your skin to best suite your individual needs.

optiphi® skin tips for winter

All year round tips but these are particularly important in winter


OPTIPHI Skin Tip: Do you keep your skin hydrated?

Dehydration is the main cause of early signs of aging and puts your skin under stress. In the cooler months it is more difficult to drink water daily as most prefer the option of warmer beverages. Trust us. Drink water. If you cannot stick to your daily intake then the OPTIPHI Skin Rejuvenation Treatment will revive and repair your skin in no time thanks to its moisturizing properties. Also optiphi® has two moisturising creams to choose from:

  • Moisture Control Light
  • Moisture Control Ultra


OPTIPHI Skin Tip: Is sunblock part of your daily skincare routine?

If not, it definitely should be. We cannot emphasize enough how crucial it is that you protect your skin from the UV rays. In sunny climates especially, the sun is the main culprit when it comes to early signs of aging. In the cooler months, many of us forget to wear daily sunblock and that is why we recommend using our award winning protect the canvas as part of your daily routine.
Should you wish to reverse sun damage caused in the summer months, then kick-start your winter preparation with a Skin Rejuvenation Treatment.You will seebenefitin the form of improving sun-damaged skin and addressing aging skin that has developed blemishes, redness, fine lines and wrinkles.
