It is skin resurfacing using chemical or natural acid to exfoliate the skin surface and give a lifting effect.Peeling is a treatment that involves applying a chemical acid that allows chemical exfoliation. This exfoliation of the skin’s surface layer will activate cell renewal, improve the skin quality and so regain skin tone.
By peeling the skin we get a dermal-epidermal regeneration, a rejuvenated and beautified skin. There are several types of peelings but the most used are usually mild and medium skin peelings.
Who is it addressed to ?
This treatment involves mechanically or chemically irritating the skin to force it to regenerate itself by producing new cells. This technique allows lightening the complexion, tightening pores, but also to erasing age spots, reducing wrinkles and erasing roughness.
The goal is to give the face, neck, chest and hands a younger smooth appearance. The mild peeling is indicated to erase fine lines.
The medium peeling is meanwhile indicated for the reduction of fine lines, deeper wrinkles and to smooth the face.
The mild peeling:
Non-invasive, it is suitable for all ages, even the most sensitive skin. Fruit acids or AHA or TCA trichloroacetic acid is used in a concentration of 10 to 15%.
The mild acid fruit peeling contains:
- glycolic acid, which lowers the keratin layer of the skin.
- kojic acid, a natural lightener that reduces melanin synthesis.
- vitamin C, also for its inhibitory effect on melanin formation.
- vitamins A and E, powerful antioxidants to optimize the action of peeling.
This type of peeling requires 4 to 6 sessions spaced every 15 days to treat aging skin, smooth the skin and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
Using trichloroacetic acid or TCA, effectively erases wrinkles and the wrinkled face appearance. Ideally suited for light skin, 1 or 2 sessions of peeling should be performed per year to reduce fine lines and give a glow to the face.
