During these chemical peels procedures the skin is affected with acid. This is one of the oldest and the most widespread aesthetic dermatology procedures. The most commonly used alpha or beta hydroxy acids, or mixtures thereof. The effect depends on the facial skin problems, skin condition, used acid, duration and frequency of the procedure.
Applying acid on the skin, connections between cells are dispersed, therefore the upper skin layer (epidermis) is eliminated. Together is being stimulated a new layer of skin formation (regeneration). Due to inflammation caused during the procedure in the deeper layers of the skin excrete various inflammatory mediators, cytokines that stimulate the activity of fibroblasts and production of new collagen and elastin fibre. The skin becomes smoother, brighter, firmer, disappear pigmentation spots.
Chemical facial scrub is suitable to solve various skin problems:
- Aesthetic problems related to photoaging, surface wrinkles, expanded pores, superficial scars;
- The treatment of acne (pimples): inflammatory and comedonal acne, acne scars;
- Treating pigmentation disorders: melasma, postinflammatory pigmentation, pigmental sun spots;
- Other skin problems: removing warts, treating sebaceous gland hyperplasia and seborrheic keratoses.
This procedure can be combined with other aesthetic treatments: mesotherapy, PRP, botulinum toxin injections, fillers and laser treatments. In the Innovative Dermatology Center we use only certified and qualitative acids or mixtures thereof, produced by internationally recognized laboratories in France and Spain.
