CosMedix – Chirally Correct Skin Care




There’s a lot of buzz about chirally correct skincare, but what does it mean for your skin?
Skin, the body’s largest organ, has millions of chiral receptors that dictate instruction to the cells they are attached to. Chirality is the description of the “spin” that every molecule and cell receptor has naturally. While it is true that virtually every molecule found in nature is “chiral” – meaning it either spins to the left or the right – not every molecule is “chirally correct”.
The FDA recognized the difference between left and right spins in ingredients in 1999 and mandated that all pharmaceuticals for human consumption must have their chirality analyzed before going to market. Some drugs had great results using one spin, but resulted in harmful side effects when the other spin was used.
Chemical Peels that have been chirally corrected are less painful, less traumatic, extremely safe for all skin types and very effective. As a result, CosMedix’s Correct Peels provide virtually no risk of unwanted side effects.
Benefit Peel from CosMedix is gentle and effective and ideal for sufferers of rosacea and those with sensitive skin. This peel delivers a blend of nourishing and stimulating ingredients into the skin layers, which result in the gentle stimulus of collagen without excessive peeling. It also provides the ultimate antioxidant peel for hypersensitive, aging, or acne-prone skin.
The peel has 20% chirally correct Vit V plus fruit enzymes and salicylic acid. It contains no parabens and no glycolic.
No irritation. At most you might get a “stingle” but more likely just a tingle.
You can view the results post-Benefit peel in this video where CosMedix US brand manager Casey shows how good her skin looks the day after the peel.
My Botique offers CosMedix peels in a clinical setting for professionally applied CosMedix peels such as Benefit, Blueberry Smoothie, Pomegranate Peel, Deep Sea Peel and Timeless Peel. For home use your My Botique consultant will assess your skin’s needs and recommend the correct products.
One thing to be aware of is that the products are extremely efficacious but delicate, due to large concentrations of vitamins and other active ingredients. Consequently it is not advisable to purchase CosMedix products over the internet where the stock could be old or incorrectly stored. To this end CosMedix have recently brought all their prices down by approximately 30 per cent to discourage purchases from unauthorized sellers.

Getting to know Laser treatments


Most of us know that lasers are found beyond the realms of science fiction but when it comes to what can be treated with lasers from a beauty perspective we might not be as informed as we would like.

Lasers can be used for the removal of freckles, pigmentation, tattoos and hair.  But at the cutting edge a combination of laser and radio frequency – such as Matrix RF – can treat wrinkles, acne, scars and improve overall skin texture.  Matrix RF is similar to Fraxel and a standard treatment is 30 minutes.  It is used for wrinkles, acne, scars and textural improvement.

Some other laser treatments at MB are Photo facial RF PRO SRA – a thirty minute treatment – which rejuvenates the appearance of the skin by aggressively treating superficial benign vascular and pigmented lesions including telangiectasias, symptoms of rosacea and angioma. This treatment is a perfect correction of multiple skin disorders.

And for Collagen Regeneration there is ReFirme for skin firming.  This treatment firms, tones and tightens lax skin with a combination of infrared optical energy and bi polar radio frequency.  With Re-Firme it is possible to achieve exceptional comfort and instant skin tightening to the face, neck, and décolletage.

The Triniti Series is a complete single treatment lasting for 90 minutes.  It can be used on both face, neck and décolletage.  Triniti involves three steps that combine three different treatments.  The first step is Renew-Vascular/Pigmented Lesion Treatment.  Next is the ReFirme -Skin tightening through wrinkle reduction.  And finally the Matrix RF-Fractional Remodelling.

One of the reasons the use of lasers are becoming so popular with Australians is that many people need laser skin treatments due to skin damage from our harsh climate, and become interested in the cosmetic possibilities after having such treatments.
