The GetGlowing MicroPeel by Elaine Brennan
What is the Elaine Brennan GetGlowing Micro-peel?
The GetGlowing Micro-Peel is a treatment in which a cream is applied to the skin to
encourage the exfoliation of dead skin cells and debris while stimulating the skin’s natural
renewal process. The GetGlowing Micro-peel is tailored to fit your clients’ individual skin
type and long-term goals.
Why was the GetGlowing Micro-Peel Formulated?
Lynda van der Spuy, daughter of Elaine Brennan, created the Micro-Peel for the client who cannot afford the down time of the Elaine Brennan Skin Renewal Peeling as well as for clients looking for a less expensive option.
How does the Get Glowing Micro-Peel differ from the Elaine Brennan Skin Renewal Peel?
There is no comparison between the two peels and should not be confused with one
another. The GetGlowing Micro-Peel is a mild peeling which will lightly exfoliate the skin
leaving it refreshed and soft.
What results will I see?
The GetGlowing Micro-peel is designed to refine skin texture damaged by environmental
factors and skin conditions such as acne. The procedure assists in smoothing fine lines and
evening out skin discoloration. It improves skin texture and reduces the appearance of acne
scars and environmental damage to the skin. With each additional Micro-Peel procedure,
you will notice incremental improvements in the overall appearance of the skin.
How many treatments do my clients need?
For maximum results, we recommend a series of Six GetGlowing Micro-Peel procedures in
two to six week intervals, depending on the skin type.
Will I experience any downtime?
For approximately one week following the procedure, the skin will undergo a renewal
process, lightly shedding its dead outer layer. Depending on the skin, your client may or
may not experience peeling. If peeling occurs, it usually begins four to five days following
the treatment and lasts for approximately three days. In addition, your client may
experience mild itching, dryness and redness.
How long does the treatment take?
Your client will need to be in the clinic for about 45 minutes - 1hr. The peeling may be done on
its own, after a facial treatment or after deep pore cleansing treatment.
What are the actives in the GetGlowing Micro-Peel:
The actives are Resorcinol, Kojik Acid and Salicylic acid.
Resorcinol works by breaking down rough, scaly or hardened skin and is used to
treat acne, eczema, psoriasis, seborrhea, photo aging, solar keratoses, epidermal
atrophy and improves skin tone and unevenness.
Kojik Acid works on melanocytes interfering with the production of melanin. It has
excellent skin-lightening abilities and is classified as an antioxidant.
Salicylic Acid is used to treat skin conditions such as psoriasis, acne, oily skin,
blackheads and whiteheads. It directly dissolves the keratin plugs to regulate the
skins cells acting as an exfoliant. Salicylic acid improves collagen production and
thickness of the skin. It has anti-inflammatory properties.
