This product worked wonders, giving me tighter skin, smaller pores and lighter pigmentation.

If you have thought about getting a chemical peel, but don’t want the downtime, this is your answer.
There are dozens of benefits to getting a chemical peel. They are proven to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, brighten dark pigments from age spots or melasma, treat acne and dramatically tighten your skin.
Another advantage to chemical peels is how much more successful they will make your skincare. By removing dead cells, your products can get to your skin better and more efficiently.
The drawback to traditional chemical peels is the downtime. The first several days to a week after a traditional peel will show redness, peeling and you should avoid wearing makeup.
The process can also be painful.
After researching ways to improve my skin, I discovered BioRePeel at Fringe Salon in Stephenville.
The BioRePeel is a chemical peel with no downtime, good for all skin types and no painful needles.
Benefits of BioRePeel include visibly smaller pores, tighter skin, brighter complexion, lighter pigmentation and a more even skin tone and texture.
HOW IT WORKS
This peel dissolves bonds between cells and carefully removes the top layer of skin. While exfoliating the skin surface, it also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin.
It is a TCA 35% (trichloroacetic acid) chemical peel that amplifies the fibroblasts to significantly improve the texture with instant results.
The BioRePeel contains a blend of:
• TCA 35% to improve skin texture, scars and pigmentation
• Salicylic acid to decongest the pores plus help with excessive oil
• Tartaric acid to brighten the skin
• Lactobionic acid to ensure better intercellular (between cells) metabolism
• Vitamin C to strengthen the capillaries
• Vitamin B2 to stimulate the formation of new healthy cells
MY RESULTS AFTER 4 TREATMENTS
My skin is sensitive, eczema prone and dry.
I am 36, so my skincare goal is to keep my skin healthy and youthful.
After the first treatment, my skin felt super tight and bright. I had a little bit of peeling and flaking on the third day, but it was mainly around my nose and eyebrow area. There was no irritation or burning to my skin throughout the week.
One week later, I did the second treatment. My skin had a little redness around my eyebrow and nose. I did have some peeling and flaking on day three and four, but it wasn’t bad. I had no skin sensitivity or discomfort.
After the third treatment, my skin looked even more tight and glowing. I saw a noticeable improvement in my pore size and elasticity. I only had one place of peeling after this third treatment around my nose.
I had no redness or peeling after treatment 4.
My skin overall is so much tighter and brighter.
I am most impressed with the appearance of pores on my cheeks, nose and chin.
My skin looks healthier and more youthful with even texture.
How often can you do this type of treatment?
A typical protocol is to do a series of four treatments seven to 10 days apart and then take three to six months off.
For acne and pigmentation, you could repeat every three months. I do have some clients that are going to do just one peel to maintain every four weeks to replace what they were doing as their professional exfoliation.
After receiving the treatment, how long should you wait before doing another type of facial?
If you’ve just finished the peel series or even just a single peel it’s recommended to wait four weeks to do a typical facial, such as hydrafacial, dermaplaning or any type of professional exfoliation.
So, if you are looking for an effective and powerful peel without any downtown, I highly recommend checking this one out!
