When it comes to full-body treatments, few options can match the resurfacing power of a peel. However, a new addition has emerged on the scene, offering a holistic solution from head to toe. Experts are raving about the BioRePeel for its effectiveness for treating acne, enlarged pores, signs of aging, uneven skin texture, pigmentation and scarring—all in a notably gentler manner. Medical aesthetician Amy Peterson calls it a “softer, more organic approach” to skin renewal.
A “Natural” Peel
According to Peterson, BioRePeel distinguishes itself from traditional peels through its gentle yet potent formulation: “It is revolutionizing skin care with its unique blend of natural acids, enzymes, vitamins and innovative technologies. Unlike other skin-care treatments, BioRepeel uses a mix of natural components like mandelic acid and lactobionic acid.”
One of the key advantages she says is its versatility in addressing various skin concerns simultaneously. “From my experience as an aesthetician, clients with concerns like uneven texture, aging signs, sun damage, or acne find remarkable results with BioRePeel.”
A Potent Formula
Bloomfield Hills, MI dermatologist Linda C. Honet, MD underscores the potency of BioRePeel’s main active ingredient, trichloroacetic acid (TCA), in addressing photoaging and photodamage. However, she also cautions about the importance of proper administration due to potential side effects and complications: “BioRePeel at 35% TCA is a very potent, medium-depth peel and therefore can have serious and rather alarming side effects and complications.”
New Orleans dermatologist Mary Lupo, MD echoes the importance of professional expertise in administering potent chemical peels like BioRePeel: “35% TCA by a lay person is a bad idea.” This underscores the significance of seeking reputable aesthetic practices for such advanced treatments, ensuring any complications can be handled with expertise and urgency.
Among the complications that can occur include redness, burning, peeling of the skin, skin tightness, dryness, and in some cases, slight discomfort. “Some of these complications, such as hypopigmentation, hyperpigmentation and scarring, to name a few, can also be a challenge to reverse, so it’s important you go to a qualified practitioner,” says Dr. Honet.
The treatment involves a two-phase technology that provides a bio-stimulating, revitalizing and peeling-like effect, without the downtime of a traditional peel. While it’s strong enough to trigger skin renewal, it’s still gentle enough for those with reactive skin. “The treatment is designed to be gentle yet effective, with less downtime and less risk of adverse reactions making it suitable for all skin types, including sensitive ones,” adds Peterson.
