DR. SCHRAMMEK GREEN PEEL

 

WHAT IS THE DR. SCHRAMMEK GREEN PEEL?

The natural, original GREEN PEEL® herbal peeling has been a worldwide success for more than 60 years.

Dr. Schrammek provided the foundation for the original GREEN PEEL® Herbal Peeling Treatment which helps people with various skin problems to get a clean and even skin. The basis is a mixture of eight selected herbs containing enzymes, minerals and vitamins, which are massaged into the skin. The Herbal Peeling Treatment was further medically developed and extended by her daughter, the dermatologist Dr. med. Christine Schrammek-Drusio, and is applied today by aestheticians and doctors worldwide. Varying amounts of the herbal plant mixtures allows the GREEN PEEL® Herbal Peeling Treatment to be adapted to individual skin conditions and the personal treatment goals.

CAN A GREEN PEEL TREATMENT BE PERFORMED DURING SUMMER?

Yes. a Green Peel treatment can be done at any season. However, intensive sunbathing should initially be avoided after a Green Peel Classic treatment, as the rejuvenated, fresh skin is particularly sensitive to sunlight.

IS A GREEN PEEL TREATMENT PAINFUL?

There 3 methods of the Green Peel:

  1. Herbal peeling

  2. Fresh up, Energy

  3. Classic

During all three methods our Green Peel Herbs are massaged into the skin. Depending on massage pressure and consistency of the skin, this can involve sparkling and prickling, but no pain. At the utmost the herbal massage can be slightly uncomfortable. The main difference between the stronger method, our Green Peel Classic and the 2 softer methods are pressure and duration of massage. This can't be considered a wellness treatment, but it is well bearable.

IS A GREEN PEEL TREATMENT AGGRESSIVE?

No. You can tell this by the fact that your skin therapist does not wear gloves during treatment. Our Herbal Peeling is purely natural and includes neither chemical substances nor abrasive particles.

DOES THE SKIN HAVE TO PEEL AFTER A GREEN PEEL CLASSIC?

No. The strength of the skin peeling is dependent on individual condition. However, this has no influence on the effect of Green Peel Herbal Peeling. The herbs always initiate a renewal- and regeneration process in the skin.

SHOULD I NOT LEAVE THE HOUSE AFTER A GREEN PEEL CLASSIC?

No, every skin is individual. Before the treatment, it is hardly possible to predict how intense the peeling will be. With most customers the skin starts to peel on the 3rd day after treatment. 


If you prefer not to be seen in public during the peeling process, you should schedule the Green Peel Herbal Peeling treatment for a Thursday, so the peeling process will take place over the weekend. 

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN GREEN PEEL AND FRUIT ACID PEELS / MICRO NEEDLING?

The Original Green Peel Herbal Peeling is based on a medically refined and worldwide proven biological method, on a pure natural basis. It is safe and can be used with almost any skin type. The Green Peel does not need machines and successfully solves various of skin problems.

The fruit acid peeling however is a chemical peeling, which is based on milk-, lemon-, apple- or wine-acid. A fruit acid peeling is preferable done in low-sunlight months, as during the summer months there has to be paid a lot of attention to sun exposure. This kind of peeling requires 8-10 sessions in weekly intervals before showing visible results.
