Frequently Asked Questions

Yellow Peel is treatments 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 is an advanced three-phase is medical peel using the combined treatment of Beta Peel and Trichloroacetic Acid and Retinoic Acid to produce a medium depth peel.

This peel can be used for all skin types and treats post inflammatory pigmentation, uneven texture and poikiloderma of civatte, hormonal pigmentation and acne.

One would begin this treatment if normal treatments (such as facials and milder peels) are not producing the desired results.

The Yellow peel is a prescription peel and one would need to have a consultation with one of our doctors. Patients would need to prepare their skin with an appropriate skin care regime recommended by their doctor.

One would need to stop using all products containing Retinol and Vitamin A -3 days prior to the treatment as well as Roaccutaine for at least 6 months prior to the treatment. Avoid sun exposure for 14 days prior to the treatment.

One would have a smoother skin with the reduction in appearance of Pigmentation, acne, fine lines and an improved texture.

One would experience 3 to 4 days of moderate ‘social’ downtime. Pigmentation often darkens before it gets better- this is a normal reaction. This deeper exfoliation produces noticeable flaking in the following 3-4 days after the peel (during downtime).

Avoid all sun exposure for 14 days following a peel- even when indoors.

Please note that 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.

The Yellow peel is safe to use on Skin Type I - IV, and a modified version is safe to use on Skin Type V & VI.

My therapist is an excellent therapist. Very kind and caring she knows the product range so well and never force sells products I don't need. She's helped my skin transition through its different stages perfectly. I will not change salon or therapists.

Review -Beautiful Skin
Reviewed on 4 March 2015 by Virginia Mkhabela

The doctor examined my skin when I first came to Skin Renewal in March 2014 at the Fourways branch, and the prescription she made has worked wonderfully and my skin is currently looking healthy and beautiful. It seems like a miracle has transformed my skin. She is a very pleasant person and has advised me well. Nicole has also been my therapist, she has done incredibly well with my treatment and I will continue to do my treatments with her.
