Skin spots are one of today’s biggest concerns. These unsightly marks are the cause of accelerated skin aging, being more common in women and dark or tanned skins. Its appearance is directly related to hormonal activity (pregnancy, oral contraceptives, menopause…) and sun exposure.
Peeling is a facial rejuvenation treatment that allows the removal of small wrinkles and skin spots, improving the texture and tone of the skin lost over time and due to the influence of harmful factors such as sun, tobacco and/or stress, among others.
It consists in the application of normally acidic substances, which irritate the cornea layer and penetrate deep. Surface peeling penetrates 0.6 mm. – thickness of epidermis – although sometimes they can reach the papillary dermis. They work by making the most superficial layers of the skin disappear, producing a bleaching effect and closing the pores. It is indicated in cases of skin aging caused by age spots, mild to moderate wrinkles, acne scars and enlarged pores, both facially and at body level. It is also helpful in cases of active acne and folliculitis.
Medical peelings are performed in consultation, in several sessions – according to each patient – being well tolerated by all skin types and requiring subsequent sun protection. The peeling will be performed in several sessions with an interval of 72 hours to 2 weeks, depending on several factors: skin type, active substance to use (type of peeling) and patient tolerance to peeling.
