Frequently Asked Questions

Azelan Peels are available in Johannesburg at Fourways, Parkhurst, Morningside, Bedfordview, West Rand and Illovo as well as in Pretoria at Brooklyn and Irene and in the Western Cape at Cape Quarter, Claremont, Constantia, Stellenbosch, Willowbridge, Paarl and KwaZulu-Natal at Durban & Umhlanga.

This peel has been specifically designed for the treatment of Acne and epidermal hyperpigmentation (two conditions that normally present together). So ideally the following conditions are indicated for this peel:

  • Individuals who have acne and epidermal hyper-pigmentation
  • oily skin with enlarged pores and
  • Acne scarring are also good candidates.

However all exfoliation treatments make your skin more sensitive to the sun thus a sunscreen of SPF# 30 should be used daily, and sun exposure avoided

This would be dependent completely on the patient’s needs and based on the doctor’s analysis of the patient’s needs.

The patient will need to be prepared with a good homecare regime. Hydration is vitally important. Since each patient’s needs are different, it would be best for the patient to come and see one of our doctors first to get the products best suited for their needs, which will then prepare them for the peel.

Within a week of having the peel, one will most certainly see a decrease in the inflammation on the skin. One will also see that the Acne lesions are less pronounced and beginning to dry out as the healing process will be underway. The patient may also experience the following benefits:

  • Improvement in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Skin tone evens out
  • Texture becomes more refined
  • Oily or acne prone skin is improved
  • Enlarged pores appear smaller
  • Superficial scars appear reduced
  • Skin appears healthier and more youthful
  • Pigmentation is reduced in all skin types

Immediately after the peel, the skin will appear quite pink and in some cases, the skin may feel “itchy”. Within about 3 days, you will start to flake for about 5 days (in some cases there is almost no visible flaking or peeling with the Azelan Peel). This peel may be repeated every two weeks over a twelve week period for optimum results.

The Azelan peel is excellent for all skin types. We do however take extra precautions when treating skin types 5 and 6 due to the sensitive nature of these skin types. This peels smoothes and rejuvenates skin, producing beautiful results in treating mild to severe acne, and epidermal hyperpigmentation. (Peeling the face, neck, back and upper chest is also quite effective).

The treatment helped a lot with my acne problem and I feel refreshed. My skin feels alive and renewed. I would definitely recommend this treatment to anyone dealing with acne and scarring. It is not painful at all, you can nap through the entire treatment!

Review -Great , Holistic and Person-Centred Experience
Reviewed on 23 October 2014 by Mandy Grobler

I had a great experience during my consultation with Dr Burt Jooste, he has a great bedside manner and a great ability to make a person feel great through the way he interacts. I felt very @ home if I can put it that way not having to sit and share my health concerns with a doctor who sits on the other side of his desk without any sign of interest shown. Very holistic Experience. He is a "go-getter" who works smart and not hard.
