Circadia by Dr. Pugliese brings to you a revolutionary concept that changed the practice of professional skin care. The SWiCH Dermal Rejuvenation Professional Treatment is a unique alternative to chemical peels for age-damaged skin.
Every four weeks on your skin cells will be gently and safely revitalised for fresher, younger-looking skin. No hiding either. SWiCH will help achieve these goals for you with little or no down time or discomfort.
If everything else you have tried still has not made you love the skin you are in, it is time to SWiCH.
How does SWiCH work?
Chemical peeling has been practiced by physicians and skin care professionals for decades, to rejuvenate damaged and ageing skin. This method relies on the skin’s natural repair mechanism, to help restore skin’s optimum appearance, without injury to the skin.
SWiCH works to help the body generate its own cellular energy, safely replenishing healthy components of the skin without inflicting damage. This revolutionary treatment is refreshing and painless, and leaves the skin looking luminous and firmer with an even, balanced skin tone.
Is SWiCH safe?
When performed on the appropriate candidate, it is very safe and does not burn the skin, as traditional peel treatments can. SWiCH is a leave-on system. The active ingredients remain to provide longevity in repair and restoration. The client uses special home care for three days. Treatments may be repeated at monthly intervals for 6 to 12 months for maximum cumulative effects.
Does this treatment cause peeling?
A warm sensation may be experienced during the treatment for about sixty seconds. Most clients experience little or no peeling. Some redness may result which subsides in few hours. It is important to follow the instructions on the home care kit provided after the treatment. Follow the directions of skin care professional before and after a SWiCH treatment.
Can I continue to use Retin-A/Renova?
Your professional will evaluate your skin and recommend the the products you need to use prior to a SWiCH treatment. You will discontinue use of retinol products one month prior to treatment, and follow the recommendations to extend and enhance your results.
How is this different from glycolic acid?
Glycolic or lactic acids cause the skin to slough. SWiCH works by naturally boosting the energy production within the skin, resulting in a refreshed complexion and a firmness you can feel. Improvement occurs gradually and results will depend on initial skin condition and client compliance.
How often is a treatment performed?
Every four-to-six weeks, for 6-12 sessions, or as recommended by your skin care specialist.
Can I return to work or apply makeup?
You will continue to use the after-care cleanser and cream for three days after SWiCH. Makeup may be applied the day after treatment. Eye makeup and lipstick may be worn immediately.
Is there special care after treatment?
Yes, you will be given products to take home and recommendations for daily use between treatments. Follow the directions of your skin care professional.
Who should not use SWiCH?
SWiCH should not be used by anyone who is pregnant, nursing, or allergic to aspirin or salicylates. Cancer patients may not receive SWiCH. You will discontinue use of any products containing Vitamin A for one month prior to treatment and will not use Vitamin A for one month afterward.
