Belfast Telegraph – Leading Make-Up Artist Paddy McGurgan experiences an Epionce Peel with Donna
Ladies I have a confession for you I have recently had my first chemical peel and I would like to share my experience with you should you be considering a similar procedure. I went for the The Epionce Peel System a chemical peel formulated for all skin types including very dry/sensitive/elderly skin, Hyper pigmentation, anti-aging, Acne/Rosacea and Keratosis Pilaris (for arms) to gently remove the superficial epidermis to effectively rejuvenate and improve the appearance and maximize the health of the skin.
Epionce Peels accelerate cell turnover with minimal irritation to reveal more beautiful, radiant skin. Overall benefit includes improvement in fine lines, wrinkles, firmness smoothness, hyper pigmentation and reduction in bacteria and yeast. It also effectively cleanses pores and removes excess scaling to reveal tighter, brighter skin. Now with all this said the next time you see a picture of me and I don’t resemble Brad Pitt, bear in mind that this is no reflection on how effective the peel has been!
I walked into getting this procedure actually quite nervous. I even had my Samantha from Sex in the City’s beekeepers outfit with me just in case I walked out and scared small children! This nervous disposition began to diminish as I had one of the most qualified experts in chemical peels performing my treatment. My therapist Donna Donaghy has worked all over the world specializing in chemical peels and microdermabrasion. Her skill and talent for these procedures has seen Donna work in places such as Melbourne and New York.
Right from our first introduction Donna immediately made me feel at ease and although the peel is very hot when it’s on the skin she kept me very calm and prevented me from running out of the salon screaming, because in my head my skin had melted off. When it comes to chemical peels and botox I strongly advise that you go to the best people. These procedures cannot be left to those only wanting to make a quick pound and creating a supermarket sales pitch you pay for quality and peace of mind to always make these procedures much more enjoyable as an experience. When the peel was taken of my skin was a bit red but not so red I couldn’t face meeting someone and on day three my skin already looks much brighter firmer and feels brand new. I have been told that the week only get better as it take just over a week to really see the full benefit. Epionce peels can also be used together with Microdermabrasion for a more intense result, again depending on the skin type or the condition being treated.
Donna has her own successful business in Cookstown, County Tyrone.
