The purpose of the peeling techniques is to smooth the skin surface by the application of acid fruits derived products to stimulate the skin’s own regeneration properties to erase superficial skin blemishes such as wrinkles and fine lines, uneven colour / hyper-pigmentation marks and skin irregularities.
The peelings use plant or chemical substances which depending on the potency of their active product, concentration or duration of application will destroy the superficial layer of the skin, i.e. all or part of the epidermis and can go up to the superficial dermis, according to the purpose needed.
What is the principle of treatment with peelings?
Depending on the desired goal on the skin, the peelings can be light and superficial: the concentration of the fruit acids is low and enough to get a radiant skin, improved and to preserve its freshness.
On the other hand, if the desired effect is to make a deep renewal of the skin the medium and deep peelings are indicated. They realize a real abrasion that can destroy the superficial layers of the skin: epidermis and the superficial part of the dermis. The controlled chemical burn followed by your surgeon results in correcting and treating superficial wrinkles and fine lines, shallow acne scars, deep pigment marks and overall to rejuvenate the skin by a cellular renewal effect.
During the restoration period of the skin after a peeling, there will be a certain skin retraction giving a true “tensor” skin effect, varying from more or less important depending on the case.
