When it comes to skin care, one size doesn’t fit all. The reality of multiple skin profiles means there is not one perfect formula or magical ingredient for younger, smoother and brighter skin.
AlumierMD is a multifaceted; results orientated skin care line that targets the underlying physiology related to each skin type, condition and person. It is customised to meet each individuals needs for optimal results.
The science behind great skin
AlumierMD was born out of an understanding that everyone wants clear, beautiful skin.
With over 100 years of combined skin care experience, Alumiers PHD biochemists, physicians and skin care experts create science backed products in luxurious formulations that work to reveal more radiant and luminous skin.
Through advanced proprietary chemistry, AlumierMD has optimised the bioavailability of each molecule in the ingredients used. As a result, Alumier’s scientific formulations deliver exceptional results.
AlumierMD products are not just ‘dusted’ with expensive ingredients to make marketing claims. Alumier research the optimal ingredients and concentrations enhanced with advance delivery systems to create prescription- strength formulations for a wide range of skin profiles.
Individuals have unique skin profiles, which means one product or skincare regimen does not fit all. Skin types include dry, normal, combination and oily. Skin conditions include rosacea, acne and hyper pigmentation. Other variables also have an impact on your skin, for example, age, ethnicity and climate. A consultation will be required to determine your skin profile based on all these factors and provide the optimal treatment regimen for you- because you are like nobody else!
Beautiful skin doesn’t happen overnight and treatments take time to show results. A single chemical peel can provide the immediate effect of bright and radiant skin; however, more significant results in treating textural issues, fine lines and inflamed acne could take up to eight weeks.
Use homecare products prescribed consistently and as directed to achieve optimal results. Just as you take time to exercise, you need to take time for your ‘daily skin care workout regimen’ in the morning and evening.
What is a chemical peel?
A chemical peel is a treatment used to improve skin texture and tone. An acid is applied to skin to lower the PH, which loosens the connections between dead skin cells, inducing exfoliation and stimulating new cell growth. This process causes superficial layers of dead skin to peel off, revealing a smoother and more radiant complexion. Chemical peels can also thicken the skin, increase volume and stimulate collagen.
Chemical peels have been used dating back to Ancient Egypt. Cleopatra used sour milk to improve the appearance of her skin, according to some sources. Lactic acid (an alpha hydroxyl acid) is the active ingredient in sour milk.
Chemical peels are classified as light (superficial), Medium or deep, depending on the depth of penetration of the ingredients used. Light peels exfoliate to varies level of the epidermis (top layer of skin) Medium- depth peels treat through the papillary dermis (just under top layer of the skin) and deeps peels peel to the mid- reticular dermis (deeper layer of the skin). Deeper peels require more downtime and increase the chance of side effects.
AlumierMD peels are light to medium depth and areknown for their excellent results and safety profile. Repeated treatments are advised for progressive and gradual results, and to avoid the side effects and downtime associated with deeper peels.
Chemical peels work by deeply exfoliating the surface layers of skin forcing the body to quickly replenish it with new cells. When peels are performed regularly, the skin gets used to this process and begins to rejuvenate itself like younger skin.
On what areas of the body are chemical peels used?
Chemical peels are usually performed on the face, but may also be used on the neck, décolleté and hands.
How can chemical peels benefit the skin?
Peel treatments improve skin texture and firmness, decreasing fine lines and wrinkles. Peels also even out skin tine, improve acne- prone skin and reduce pore size and appearance.
What are the common peeling agents?
Some common peeling ingredients include alpha hydroxyl acids (AHA’s) Beta hydroxy acids (BHA’s) and retinol. AHA’s include glycolic acid, lactic acid, citric acid, malic acid, tartaric acid and mandelic acid. Salicylic acid is the only beta hydroxy acid. The strength of a peel is determined by the type of ingredients used, their concentrations and the PH of the formulation. Not all peels are created equally, and one peel doesn’t suit all. Certain ingredients may be more effective for treating acne, while others may be more successful in treating hyper pigmentation or the signs of aging.
