Health and Beauty wholesaler Ellisons has launched a professional facial peel treatment for salons, spas and colleges.

Created exclusively for Ellisons, the treatment has been formulated to reduce fine lines, sun damage, acne and congestion. The treatment kit contains pre-peel, peel and post-peel solutions in 500ml bottles, cleanser, toner, moisturiser and a skin softening mask. The items will also be available to purchase individually.

The solution combines Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) and Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHAs) which are suitable for all skin types and help to improve imperfections related to ageing, sun-damage, congestion and acne. The peel treatment contains 25% Glycolic Acid (AHA) which penetrates the skin and helps to plump, smooth and refresh the complexion. The 1% Salicylic Acid (BHA) provides a light surface exfoliation helping to reduce the appearance of blackheads and whiteheads while unblocking pores.

Frequency of treatments should be discussed between therapist and individual client and will depend on skin type i.e. once a week for dry skin or twice a week if skin is excessively oily. To buy online customers must hold either a Visopeel certificate or a glycolic certificate. To attend a training course at the Ellisons Academy, customers must hold a level two certificate in facial treatments or equivalent.

Commenting on the launch, Matt Champney, commercial director at Ellisons, said: “We’re really excited to be launching Visopeel as a safe and effective facial peel treatment. It provides an opportunity for salons and spas to broaden their treatment menu and offer their clients clearer and healthier looking skin. Each solution bottle provides approximately 30 treatments which equates to a significant return on investment.”
