What are chemical peels?
Chemical peels are a group of treatments that involve controlled skin damage using a chemical substance to stimulate skin regeneration processes, ultimately refreshing and rejuvenating the skin. The most commonly used peeling agents are acids.
In our clinic, we particularly recommend peels using:
TCA (we recommend the best-selling treatment in combination with a lifting massage using the PRX T-33 product)
The depth of action of the preparations can vary and depends on the type of substance, its concentration, pH, and the time it remains on the skin.
How is the procedure performed?
The procedure using chemical peels involves the localized application of preparations to the skin's surface, which act by causing different degrees of damage to the epidermis and the dermis. The result of using peels, which appears practically immediately after applying the product, is the partial exfoliation of the skin. The long-term effects of the peeling action include skin rebuilding and regeneration, reduction of discolorations and other skin defects such as scars, stretch marks, or acne, the shallowing of superficial wrinkles, skin moisturization, and nourishment, as well as the improvement of its firmness and elasticity. The choice of the preparation depends on the predominant problem that one wants to correct. The skin type, the person's lifestyle, and their expectations are also important.
The method is simple, minimally invasive, and safe. After the procedure, depending on the depth of the peel, the skin may become red and swollen, and the patient may experience mild burning and increased tissue tension. Several days after the procedure, the skin begins to peel intensively. The duration and intensity of these symptoms depend on the depth of the peel. It is important to protect the skin from sunlight and use UV-filter creams after the procedure.
The effect of the peel is visibly noticeable after the first treatment, but for a full effect, you should undergo 4 to 6 treatments at intervals of 2 to 4 weeks, depending on the skin type and type of peel.
How to prepare for the procedure?
Before the planned procedure, you should refrain from any procedures that may irritate the skin in the treatment area, including lasers and depilation.
Absolutely one week before the planned treatment, you should discontinue all cosmetics containing retinol.
