Look healthier with chemical peeling!

The term “peeling” means a controlled peeling of the upper layers of the skin.

Chemical peeling methods can be used to solve problems such as fine wrinkles, stains, dulling and coarsening of the skin surface. There are some peeling agents that are also used at home, but they are agents that exfoliate with their granular structures and friction, with mechanical effect, not chemical. Our aim here is to go deeper and provide a change and restructuring in both the upper layer and the lower tissue. In addition, the rates of chemicals allowed by the ministry for home use in the market are very limited and it is a very superficial process. Higher and more effective concentrations are prepared and sold for physician applications.

The epidermis, the topmost layer of the skin, consists of about 30 cellular layers. New/young cells are formed from the cells in the lowest layer. Over time, these cells advance towards the upper floors, bypassing the stair step. When they reach the top layer of our skin, they lose their vitality, dry up and form a layer of dead cells. On the one hand, the decreasing cellular renewal rate that develops over time, and on the other hand environmental pollution, all together cause our skin to lose its vitality and acquire a dull, dull and yellowish color. The “peeling” treatments applied with fruit acids gently peel off the dead skin cells and ensure the formation of new cells.

The aim is to make the skin look brighter, tighter and smoother by creating healthier and younger cells. With regular practice;

Fine lines and wrinkles can be removed

Elasticity-tightness of the skin is provided

Brown spots on the skin, i.e. pigment irregularities, can be eliminated.

Acne scars can be treated

When purchasing a product from cosmetic markets, it is recommended to buy cleansing face masks or exfoliating materials in stylish packaging. Usually these are particulate products that are applied once or twice a week. These are “Mechanical peeling” products; they only peel off the top skin.

“Chemical peeling” is the peeling of the upper layer of the skin by melting the intercellular connection using a chemical substance. For this purpose, AHA, PHA and 10% trichloroacetic acid (TCA) are used. All AHAs, known as fruit acids, are used for light to medium chemical peels. AHAs act on the upper and lower layers of the skin, allowing the skin to regenerate.

Dermatologists most often use products containing AHA in their clinics. Because it is a short-term application, it is popularly known as a “lunch scrub.” It can be administered to the person during a lunch hour, and the person can return to work without any signs of application. Due to its ease of application and effectiveness, glycolic acid is the most widely used product among superficial chemical peels. After a few peeling sessions, patients notice a revitalization of their skin and a reduction in fine lines.
