8 steps to WOW
1. FIND A MEDIK8 CLINIC
Visit your local Medik8 clinic who can enroll you on the programme.
2. HAVE A PRE-PEEL CONSULTATION
Your trained Medik8 therapist will arrange an in-clinic consultation appointment convenient to you, so you can discuss your skin goals together and work out the best in-clinic and at-home regime for you. At this initial consultation, your therapist will talk through their recommended approach to help you meet your skin goals. This will likely involve 6 Medik8 professional peels (spaced 10-14 days apart) and CSA homecare to use twice daily. CSA is our core philosophy for achieving Beautiful Skin for Life: vitamin C plus Sunscreen by day, vitamin A by night.
3. CSA SKIN PREP
Your therapist will send you home with your CSA homecare to prepare the skin for around 2* weeks before returning to have your first peel. At the pre-peel consultation, they will also take a photo of your skin from a few angles so you can track your progress over the course of the programme. You will also receive your 12 Weeks to WOW Skin Passport which is a printed booklet you should bring to each appointment which you and your therapist fill in together to track your progress and the treatments and peel strengths you've experienced. It's a great tool to help your therapist tailor the very best programme for you. They are able to dial-up or down the types and strengths of each treatment so your experience is truly bespoke to you. Plus homecare can be reviewed as and when you need top-ups.
*Duration may vary based on skin type and condition.
4. EASY PEELERS
After 2 weeks of consistent at-home CSA use, you will return to clinic for your first of 6 professional peel treatments. You can read what to expect from a peel below. All Medik8 peels have Time-Release technology which means minor discomfort is minimised. Every skin is different, but many clients describe the experience as either itchy or just increased heat on the skin. You can ask the therapist to remove the peel at any point in the treatment, but we find the majority of clients are easily able to have the peel on the skin for the recommended 10 minutes which only enhances the results. Time may vary dependent on skin condition or type.
5. COOLING OFF
After the peel treatment is concluded, it is neutralised quickly by your therapist and cool, soothing gauzes are placed on the skin to normalise it as quickly as possible. You will then receive beautiful pampering aftercare with layers of soothing serums and creams tailored to your skin type. You will leave the clinic make-up free but with a Medik8 Post-Treatment Kit with everything you need to care for the skin for the next 3-5 days. Your therapist will advise you how to use everything to get the best results and book in your next appointment (if not already done). He / She may well give you a ring a few days later to check in how your skin is feeling and recovering. Be sure to update your Skin Passport with all this information too.
6. PEELS 2 TO 6
After 10 to 14 days have elapsed since your first peel, you will have your second in-clinic appointment for peel 2. Using your Skin Passport notes, your therapist will discuss how you felt the first treatment was, how it felt on the skin and assess what's needed for peel 2. The process repeats every 10 to 14 days with another in-clinic professional peel until all 6 are complete. Your therapist will recommend top-ups to your homecare as and when you need them along the way.
7. THE BIG WOW REVEAL
After completing your 6 peels, you will be invited back for 1 last in-clinic appointment to review the process and compare your before and after pictures. As well as celebrating the results with you, your therapist can then discuss how to prolong them and recommend an ongoing maintenance regime to help retain Beautiful Skin for Life.
8. SHARE & COMPARE
