Pumpkin resurfacer utilises the three main acids as well as the power of pumpkin which is very active on the skin due to the enzymatic action of the pulp. The enzymes break down the bonds of the dead surface cells allowing their exfoliation and exposure of new younger healthy cells. The pumpkin ploughs through surface protein then collagen and elastin rejuvenation which is stimulated by the glycolic and lactic acid.
Salicylic resurfacer is ideal for oily and acne skin types. Salicylic acid moves easily through the pores and follicles, clearing them out while reducing inflammation. This treatment effectively combats acne, leaving a wonderfully smooth and clear complexion.

Who is it for? The Pumpkin resurfacer is for any skin type that is looking to have deep rejuvenation, reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation and mild acne. All skin types will benefit from this powerful enzymatic treatment and can be used in a course or as a stand alone maintenance treatment. The Salicylic acid resurfacer is designed for those with inflamed acne skin conditions with mild to moderate acne**.
The Procedure: To maximise the desired effect the pre-skin resurfacing programme should be practiced 2-4 weeks prior to treatment. During treatment the skin is cleansed, primed and balm applied to protect certain facial areas. The resurfacer is applied using gauze and within minutes there is a warm sensation that feels like sunburn but which is then cooled. Post-treatment solutions are then applied.
Aftercare: It is mandatory to follow the post-skin resurfacing programme and written instructions. It is important to remember that whilst undergoing treatment the skin has little or no protection to UV light (both UVA and UVB).
Prices: (Pumpkin £65/treatment) (Salicylic £75/treatment) recommend 6 treatments 2-4 weeks apart.
