Chemical Peels provide gentle treatment of the skin to remove inaesthetic traces of acne, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, redness, and inflammation. Procedures have curative effect as they stimulate cell regeneration and collagen and elastin synthesis. They contribute to restore hydration and regulate sebum secretion. After chemical peels skin visibly improves and refreshes, pores shrink, complexion is leveled, fine wrinkles are smoothed, scars are removed.
The chemical peel is a controlled removal of surface layers of the skin by applying a chemical agent. Depending on the chemical agent and the used technique peels can be: superficial, medium and deep. What to be the depth, the type of acid used and the number of procedures, is determined by your dermatologist.
Superficial chemical peels are very elegant procedures, which does not affect the daily life of the patient. Organic acids of natural origin – fruit are usually used. This is a safe and effective technique for treatment of various skin diseases, guaranteeing excellent aesthetic results.
Before the treatment, the skin is thoroughly cleaned. Depending on the desired depth of the peel different patent medicines are applied. In superficial peels are used glycolic and TCA (Trichloroacetic acid). Here recovery is fast. In medium depth, peels are used a higher percentage of TCA or combined with glycolic, stimulating collagen production. The third chemical peels target deep skin peel off and rarely is applied in daily dermatology practice. By it are done corrections and adjustments of cut and deep scars.
The procedure lasts 30 minutes, and the best time for chemical peels are fall, winter, and spring since after treatment the skin becomes much more sensitive. To complete skin recovery should be used sunscreens.
Burning is a major flaw in the first two types. In medium depth peels surface anesthetic is put. The felt discomfort is negligible and is expressed in metered tingling during the procedure, as well as slightly pinkish after treatment. Redness disappears after hours, 2-3 days after the peel is observed increased exfoliation.
