Peeling is a non-invasive medical procedure that improves the condition of the epidermis, and often also the dermis, by removing cosmetic defects located within them and lesions. It involves applying to the skin of the area undergoing treatment various chemical compounds that cause exfoliation and subsequent regeneration of the epidermis, or simultaneously the epidermis and dermis.
Indications for medical peels:
- pigmented lesions, sun spots
- skin ageing, wrinkles, loss of skin firmness
- hyperkeratosis of the skin
To achieve the intended medical or aesthetic effect, it is advisable to perform a series of peels. Depending on the recommended treatment protocol, the peeling is carried out every 2 to 4 weeks.
After peeling, it is forbidden to sunbathe and use the solarium for at least 4 weeks. It is advisable to use sunscreen (cream with a UV 50+ filter). After the procedure, the skin may peel off and the intensity of scaling depends on the type of chemical used.
