Techniques and procedures
Over time, the skin loses its ability to regenerate and its elasticity properties. We must also take into account that some external factors such as sun exposure, pollution or smoking also contribute to this. As a consequence, effects such as spots, acne, post-inflammatory marks or shallow wrinkles may appear. The chemical peeling arises to renew the superficial or middle layers of the skin, with the aim of correcting previous defects and obtaining a more luminous, smooth and soft skin.
Types of peeling:
Depending on the depth of action of the peeling, there are 3 types:
- Superficial: Eliminates the most superficial layer of the skin. It is the least aggressive.
- Medium: It acts on slightly deeper layers. Useful for the treatment of fine wrinkles or acne. The best known is trichloroacetic acid (TCA).
- Deep: It acts even in the deep zone of the dermis. Recommended for very deep blemishes, severe sun damage to the skin or very pronounced acne scars.
Indications for peeling:
- Reduces fine lines
- Improves photo-ageing (due to sun exposure)
- Acne scars
- Post inflammatory pigment sequels
- Skin spots
- Improve skin texture, tone and luminosity
Care after a peeling:
Abundant skin moisturizing with the products we will recommends
Total sun protection
Resume make-up once you have recovered from the peeling effect, depending on the depth of the treatment applied.
Those patients who have a history of cold sores or other facial regions should take antiviral prophylaxis to avoid an outbreak.
