Next up in our “Acne Series” is the Mesoestetic Mesopeel Azelan. Long gone are the days where peels leave you with a red, sore and shedding post-peel face, Mesopeels are both gentle on the epidermis yet effective on areas of concern. This exclusive peel is formulated with a precise combination of chemical exfoliants to treat specific and common aesthetic disorders such as acne and acne scarring.
How Mesopeel Azelan works
Acne is characterised and graded accordingly starting with open and closed comedones, inflamed pustules, Seborrhoeic Dermatitis and acne scarring (depending on the severity and age of the scars). The Azelan treatment peel combines 20% Azelaic Acid with 20% Salicylic Acid, which can be used on all acne grades 1-4.
Azelaic Acid is an antibacterial agent with anti-inflammatory and oil-regulating properties to normalise the keratinisation process of the follicles.
Salicylic Acid is a Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA) that penetrates pores to loosen clogged follicles by breaking apart dead skin cells, softening and helping them reveal smoother looking skin. It also has anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, astringent and anti ageing properties.
Who is Mesopeel Azelan for?
The Mesopeel Azelan is specifically for acneic skin experiencing inflamed spots, blackheads, whiteheads, post-acne scarring, seborrhoea and rosacea.
The treatment is suitable for most skin types and to achieve the best possible results, we recommend the use of specific Mesoestetic home care products prior to treatment that are designed to replenish and strengthen the skin post-peel.
The treatment pack is fully explained by our expert clinicians and contains:
Mesoestetic Purifying Mousse Cleanser – this daily cleansing mousse deeply cleanses and purifies acne-prone skin to leave a fresh supple complexion.
Mesoestetic Acne One Treatment Cream – exfoliate, limit sebum production, control bacteria, reduce redness and p-acne bacteria.
Mesoestetic Pure Renewing Mask – exfoliate and purify oily and acne-prone skin whilst stimulating cellular renewal to keep skin clear and smooth.
How many treatments will I need?
As with all treatments at Face the Future, a consultation must be completed prior to treatment, allowing our expert clinicians to assess your skin concerns and make the best possible treatment recommendations for your skin. We usually recommend around 4-6 Mesopeel Azelan sessions with minimum intervals of 2 weeks between treatments.
Does the treatment have any downtime?
Yes, patients tend to experience mild pink/redness after treatment and skin may feel warm. However this normally subsides within 24-48 hours.
After treatment we advise against any sun exposure or heat treatments for at least 24-48 hours, some flaking may occur and this is often more prevalent around the mouth and eye area. Skin may feel a little tight and swollen for 24-48 hours. And as always, it is important to use a broad spectrum SPF containing a high standard of UVA/UVB rated 50 or more.
