Peeling is one of the ways to smooth the skin’s imperfections. It involves natural exfoliation of the epidermis and dermis. How deep the treatment is depends on the extent of the imperfections that need treating. A chemical peeling product, usually based on fruit acids, is applied to the skin for a carefully measured period of time. Depending on the desired effect, the peeling treatment can be superficial (for small wrinkles and to give the skin a flow) or semi-deep (for deeper-seated imperfections).
Peeling treatments can be used to treat a wide variety of problems:
This is caused by poor circulation, which leads to constriction of the blood vessels. Pollution, smoking, poor hydration, the use of inappropriate skin creams, stress… there are many causes of a dull complexion.
These are caused by variation in skin colour under the eye. They can be brown, blue or purple. They can be permanent, or can be caused by tiredness, smoking and other factors. They give an exaggerated impression of tiredness.
Oily and spotty skin
Oily skin is characterised by excessive sebum production. Dead skin, bacteria and dirt accumulate easily and block the pores, which leads to the formation of blackheads and spots.
If acne has been present for years, in many cases there is mild scarring on the face, giving the skin an uneven texture.
These are caused by exposure to the sun and UV light in general. They are melanin deposits deep within the skin. The mask of pregnancy (melasma) is also very common. This is a brown pigmentation on the face, which can be triggered by pregnancy or oral contraceptives.
Signs of ageing
Ageing manifests itself in the appearance of small wrinkles and loss of skin firmness.
The skin must be prepared beforehand, and specially-designed topical treatments will be applied to treated skin for 1-2 weeks.
Peeling treatments are usually administered in autumn or winter, as sun exposure is not allowed after treatment. These treatments are given in the clinic.
