Why The Blueberry Peel Is Still Our Most Effective Treatment
"I don't have favourites, I love them all equally…" - Every mother ever, when asked if they have a favourite child.
It may not be politically correct, but at The Clinic, we do not play by the same rules. Our signature Blueberry Peel by Cosmedix is undoubtedly our favourite treatment, period.
Combining Lactic Acid and Antioxidants, the Blueberry Peel has been an integral part of our treatment list for 15+ years, and remains one of our most popular treatments, with an average of 30 performed a week. So how has the Blueberry Peel retained its place as our signature treatment? Put simply, the results speak for themselves:
"It's one of our favourite treatments here at The Clinic. It delivers amazing results with little downtime. It's great at reducing dullness in the skin, smoothing out any rough or dry texture, and brightening the skin. Plus, it's safe during pregnancy and breastfeeding." - Chantal Child, Registered Nurse
"If I was to tell you one treatment I swear by, it is the Blueberry Antioxidant Peel… your skin will GLOW!" - Laura Dundovic, Model & Presenter
Behind the instant glow of the Blueberry Peel is a sophisticated chirally-correct chemical process.
The power of the Blueberry Peel is in an understanding of the skin on a molecular level. This is The Clinic's point of difference with the Chemical Peels we perform and other 'facials'.
Chirality is used to describe the natural left or right 'spin' all molecules in the body have. The skin has millions of chiral receptors controlling the actions of the cells they are associated with. When an ingredient of skincare meets a receptor, the process is extraordinarily precise, and if a component has the wrong spin for a receptor (think square peg, round hole), things can go downhill. The Blueberry Peel has been chirally corrected (has the 'right' spin) to provide it's many benefits without unwanted pain, irritation or trauma to the skin. By ensuring the Blueberry Peel is chirally correct, the active ingredients resemble their natural state quite closely, and the body recognises this, allowing a Blueberry Peel to function better at a cellular level.
It's the understanding of chirality as a scientific concept that sets apart our registered nursing staff in their clinical practice. Our treatments are corrective in nature, hence the reason we refer to them as 'Chemical Peels', not 'facials'. The Blueberry Peel is a medical strength peel, and in the hands of our nurses, is one of the keys to brighter, clearer and fresher skin. A teaspoon of the Blueberry Peel will break down the epidermal layer of the skin through a process of physical and enzymatic exfoliation. As it is massaged into the skin, the lactic acid will start working its magic.
And if you want to step it up a notch? Another benefit of the Blueberry Peel is that it layers beautifully with our advanced peels to enhance results.
At The Clinic, we do not take a one-size-fits-all approach to your skin. Our nursing staff are experts in discerning the individual needs of our clients and can mix and match additional Peels to tailor your Clinic experience to your skin.
Sensitive or reactive skin? You may be a candidate for The Benefit Peel. Based in an ascorbic acid formulation to be less irritating, the Benefit Peel uses Vitamin C to reduce redness and inflammation, while exfoliating using Salicylic Acid.
Prone to breakouts? One or two areas of deep, underlying congestion may mean layering spot treatments with our potent Detox Problem Skin Peel (Lactic and Salicylic Acid with Retinol).
These additions and substitutions are our clinical point of difference.
