Chemical Peeling

Quality care for quality skin. Brighten-up and rejuvenate your face, get rid of pigmentation, colour-unify the skin, soften the effects of acne or scarring, tighten the eye area, clear the skin from the enlarged pores, regenerate the skin after excessive exposure to the sun, simply improve the look – it can be a non-invasive chemical peeling method. However, in order for it to benefit the skin as accurately as it should, then the medical application of it is important.

Medical chemical peeling versus chemical peeling applied in a cosmetic salon

Chemical peeling doesn’t replace surgical rejuvenation procedures, but due to the use of concentrated chemical active substances, fruit acids and enzymes, it can act on the skin’s surface layers without damaging the lower layers of epidermis, replacing it with a new, healthier one. However, it’s important to know that only a physician knows exactly what chemical peeling your skin needs. In the hands of a cosmetician, such a concentrated substance may cause damage to the skin rather than improve its condition. If a thorough analysis of your skin isn’t carried out in a cosmetic salon, they cannot apply the right type of chemical peeling professionally. In cosmetic salons, only very low concentrations of chemical peeling can be used by law, higher concentrations are forbidden for use in cosmetic salons and may only be used by a physician.

Detailed information about the procedure

Depending on the concentration of the applied substance, duration of action and depth of penetration, we perform surface, medium deep, or deep chemical peeling.

  • We use gentle chemical peeling to rejuvenate, regenerate and reduce facial wrinkles in the eye area.
  • Surface peeling is suitable for skin with acne and expanded pores.
  • Peeling used for pigment stains effectively minimises them.
  • Regeneration and unification of the skin tone are achieved with the enzymatic peeling.
  • For non-deep wrinkles and scars, a peeling containing lactic acid, salicylic acid, along with an exfoliating agent is suitable.
  • Deep wrinkles or damaged skin are treated with a more concentrated chemical peeling.

Both men and women can benefit from this procedure (age limit is above15 years of age); it can be combined with other aesthetic treatments, including laser treatments (using hyaluronic acid, botulinum toxin and mesotherapy, etc.).

Chemical peelings types

Jessner’s Solution

The concentrated solution of resorcinol, salicylic acid and lactic acid is designed for deep peeling and effectively removes pigment spots, acne scars and other imperfections. Swelling, scabs, reddening of the skin may occur on the treated area for about a week. Within a week to 14 days, the skin is smoothed and cleaned.

TCA

The TCA chemical peeling with a low concentration of active ingredients acts effectively on the surface epidermis to remove it and create a new healthier skin layer. Effectively removes fine wrinkles, improves skin cell structure. With a higher content of concentrated substances, it can be used as a replacement for laser treatment to balance skin with acne.
The resulting effect is visible approximately after 14 days.

Tretinoin

A concentration solution of 1–5% is applied. It works very effectively for acne treatment and with immediate effect. After approximately one week, the surface skin layer is subsequently peeled.

Procedure Benefits

Chemical peeling gives the skin a more youthful look, the skin is regenerated. In addition to the aesthetic and health aspects, chemical peeling also has a preventive effect.

  • A day-care, simple non-invasive procedure
  • The skin is rejuvenated, unified, smoothed and brightened
  • Reduction in sebum production
  • Designed for all skin types
  • It can be applied on the face, neck, décolletage, hands and back
  • Quick skin restoration

Course of Treatment

During the 10–15-minute day-care treatment, the most frequently used concentrated glycolic acid (either 15, 40 or 70%) obtained from sugar cane as a natural product is uniformly applied to the pre-cleaned and degreased area using a brush. The action of the substance will destroy the epidermal layer of the skin, resulting in almost immediate peeling and renewal. After a short period of time, the peeling mixture is neutralised and removed.

 

Before the Procedure

The treatment will always be done by a physician who will suggest the most suitable type of chemical peeling for you. Before treatment, it’s not advisable to undergo cosmetic treatment, cosmetic peeling, depilation or epilation of the skin. In the following cases, the procedure isn’t recommended:

  • Inflammation, infection or illness
  • Cancer
  • Cold sores, skin problems
  • Pregnancy
  • Diabetes

Tell your attending physician of other health problems and medications you are taking.

After the Procedure

After the procedure, the skin may show short-term redness. Small scabs may form for few days and peeling may occur for around 14 days, which is a healing process. Avoid swimming, sunbathing, visiting solariums, and excessive physical exertion for at least a day after treatment. It’s advisable to use high quality protective creams with a high PH factor, the treating physician will recommend regenerative and soothing creams for faster healing. You must take into account that the healing process will take longer when a stronger concentration of chemical peeling has been applied.

The effect is visible immediately as collagen fibre production is stimulated during the procedure, helping to elasticate and hydrate the skin. However, best results are achieved by repeating the procedure 3–5-times within 4–6 weeks.
