Acne, blackheads, enlarged pores, or hyperpigmentation are something that we encounter during our lifetime. Chemical peel is one of the efficient solutions we offer in DermaVille.
Chemical peel is a procedure conducted to remove the surface layer of the epidermis. Chemical peel cleanses pores, establishes seboregulation, improves skin texture and stimulates collagen synthesis in deeper layers of the skin. The purpose of chemical peels is to remove the layer of dead epidermal cells and allow the skin to regenerate. There are several types of chemical peels that are adapted to each skin type and condition. They are most often used to resolve the issues such as oily skin, acne, enlarged pores and blackheads, dehydrated skin, hyperpigmentation, acne scars, tiny wrinkles and devitalized skin..
Multiple beneficial effects of chemical peels:
- voily skin and acne – it establishes seboregulation, calms inflammatory processes (acne),
- enlarged pores and blackheads – deeply cleanses sebaceous channels of the sebaceous glands and shrinks pores, reduces the breakout of blackheads,
- dehydrated skin – allows deep penetration of the hydration preparations, restores humidity and vitality,
- hyperpigmentation – whitens freckles and sun spots, blemishes caused by acne …
- tiny wrinkles and devitalized skin – gradually reduces tiny wrinkles and revitalizes the skin.
There are three types of chemical peels:
- superficial chemical peel
- medium chemical peel
- deep chemical peel.
The peel composition differs depending on the manufacturer and the acid concentration (20%, 35%, 50% and 70%).
According to their composition chemical peels can be:
- glycolic acid peel
- mandelic acid peel
- citric acid peel
- lactobionic acid peel…
There are also several different peel manufacturers, and we at DermaVille, use only the best of medical cosmetics, such as SkinCeuticals and NeoStrata.
The first step in performing a chemical peel is proper skin preparation. After the preparation, the appropriately selected chemical peel is accurately applied. The concentration and type of chemical peel is determined based on the skin type and condition. The skin reaction is constantly monitored from the application of chemical peel to its neutralization, and the expected reaction time is 5 to 10 minutes. A mild burning sensation is expected during the chemical peel, but it disappears after the neutralization. The procedure itself is painless, comfortable and short lasting. Mild redness appears in the treated region after the chemical peel, but it subsides quickly. Most chemical peels can be performed all year round with mandatory and adequate protection from the sun.
Chemical peels can be combined with other procedures, thus achieving faster, better and long-lasting results of all treatments.
