The modern Peeling method!
What is the target audience for Chemical Peeling?
Peelings are aimed at people who notice the first signs of time or sun on their skin. These scars are most evident on people with open skin types, men and women, and on skins that are thin and dry.
These can be fine wrinkles, sunscreen and discoloration (skin stains), hyperkeratosis (hardening of the skin), dry and dull skin.
There are also special peels for acne patients and in addition to the medication they receive they offer sebum adjustment (adjusting the oiliness of the skin and its tendency to retain sebum), while other deeper peeling offers aesthetic relief of scarring acne.
In addition, chronic and cumulative exposure to the sun (UV radiation) done for professional (outdoor work, eg farmers) or leisure (various outdoor sports) adds to the above the photo aging that burdens our skin.
Finally, especially peeling that offer whitening help also patients with melasma (stains that appear on the face after pregnancy etc) to aesthetically improve their problem.
What is Chemical Peeling?
Chemical peeling is used to remove signs of time on the face, hands, neck and chest.
It can also cure some types of acne and certain skin discoloration. It also fights against scabs, fine lines (around the mouth and under the eyes in particular), hard spots on the skin, blur, sun damage (or photoaging) and pimples.
Whatever the reason for choosing the peelings you will see more even skin color, lighter skin, fewer lines and wrinkles and finally smoother skin.
How does Chemical Peeling work?
Controlled injury is caused by applying a peeling chemical to the skin in order to remove the superficial layers of the skin.
The main purpose of peeling is to regenerate new tissue and improve skin texture with long lasting therapeutic and aesthetic benefits.
The process is simple and takes 15 minutes to complete. At first, the surface is cleaned where the treatment will be followed by the application of the special chemical agent. At this stage you will feel a slight tingling, but it recedes immediately, depending on the type of chemical agent.
The deeper the penetration of the chemical solution, the more immediate its effects are, thereby increasing the required recovery time, while within the next few days, little or more skin peeling is observed.
What are the results – some advice after Chemical Peeling treatment?
It depends on the type of chemical exfoliation.
If it is superficial, healing takes 1-7 days. The skin will be red in the beginning and redness may peel off for 3-7 days. Gentle cleansing of the face with soap-free product (on face always with cold water), gentle towel drying, and moisturizing twice daily. The skin should be coated with lotion or cream until it heals and then daily use of sunscreen with a high sun protection index is necessary to prevent over-pigmentation.
However, because the surface peeling is very mild, usually the same or at least the next day make up can be used.
If peeling is moderate, healing typically takes 7-14 days. The skin will be red and have swelling, which will worsen for the first 48 hours. Special post-operative care is usually recommended, including visits to the dermatologist for re-examination. Use of make up is usually allowed after 5-7 days.
If the peeling is deep it usually has a healing time of 14-21 days. And in this case, special post-operative care is recommended and several visits to the dermatologist are required for a re-examination. Use of make up is usually allowed after at least two weeks.
