Peeling is a procedure that consists in exfoliating surface layers of epidermis. Depending on applied substances and their concentration, it removes epidermis and layers of dermis.
Various substances which are used during peelings have an impact on reconstruction of collagen and elastin so that new skin is free from problems, more hydrated and elastic. Medical peelings can be applied both as preparations to improve appearance and conditions of the skin (revitalisation, smoothing of wrinkles, elimination of discolourations and scars, e.g. acne scars) and as products intended for skin with dermatological problems (seborrhoea, acne vulgaris, acne rosacea, melasma and solar keratosis) .
Each time peeling must be individually selected which depends on skin type, problems, age and dermatological illnesses.
Action of medical peelings
- they stimulate fibroblasts to accelerated synthesis of collagen
- they accelerate production of ceramides
- they cause the increase of hyaluronic acid
- they improve the function of dermal-epidermal barrier and increase skin’s resistance to irritation
- they reduce thickness of stratum corneum and thereby brighten the skin and improve its tone
- they do not increase water loss despite their exfoliating action
- they inhibit production of melanine in melanocytes and inhibit tyrosinase
- they sensitise skin to UV radiation
- After peeling, alive layers of epidermis and dermis become thicker
- They improve the quality of elastin fibres
- skin allergies
- pregnancy and lactation
- viral and bacterial infections
- hypersensitivity to light
- surgical procedures of face and neck in the last 2 months
- radiotherapy and chemotherapy
- heart, kidneys and liver diseases
- cryotherapy in the last 6 months
- tendency to form keloids
