You probably know what peeling is - but did you know how its medical version is effective in treating various skin ailments? This non-invasive medical treatment results in a general improvement in the skin’s condition and quality, as well as the removal of cosmetic defects and lesions: pigmentation (melasma, freckles, post-inflammatory and sun-induced discolouration), ageing signs (wrinkles, loss of skin firmness), acne, acne scars and stretch marks.
How it WORKS
A medical peel consists of the application of properly selected chemicals onto the area, which results in exfoliation of the epidermis and superficial layers of the dermis. With these controlled lesions, skin regeneration is enhanced. The depth of the peel depends on the type of chemical used, the time of application prior to neutralization, the number of layers of the applied solution, the patient’s phototype and substances used before and after the peel. All these parameters are evaluated by the doctor according to the intended final effect. Chemical exfoliation can affect different skin levels. It can be very superficial, medium and deep.
In order to achieve satisfactory results, it is advisable to perform a series of treatments (usually 4 to 6 at 2-4 weeks intervals, with a single procedure’s time of approx. 30 minutes). After the peel, sunbathing and tanning is prohibited for at least 4 weeks. It is advisable to use sunscreen (a cream with UV 50+ filter). After the procedure, exfoliation may occur, its intensity depending on the type of chemical used. Peels may also be a good supplement or preparation for other medical aesthetic treatments – these combined treatments give the best results.
