If you want to improve the condition of your skin, in an effective and proven way we suggest Chemical Peels. They are also called chemical or dermatological acids because the most common exfoliating substances found in them are indeed acids, such as: Lactic, Salicylic, Glycolic, Citric etc.
How does Chemical Peel work?
Chemical peels penetrate the skin and
cause its outer layers to dissolve or peel off.
They work by loosening the connections
between skin cells.
This mechanism causes an impulse to stimulate
skin's natural regenerative processes –
an increased rate of cell division of the epidermis.
Exfoliation of skin's outer layers allows the skin
to get rid of excess sebum and dead cells.
As a result, the sebaceous gland openings
become narrower and the skin surface is smoothed.
Under the influence of exfoliating acids, a cascade of
regenerative reactions is triggered, also in the dermis.
For example, BioRepeelCl3 is a deep TCA peel
that penetrates through the top five layers of the
epidermis to the uppermost layers of the dermis.
It is unique that it has minimal downtime and gets
back to day-to-day life immediately.
What is the treatment process?
Depending on the product used, the exact procedures differ from one another. However, the typical procedure is as follows:
1. The first stage includes preparing the skin for the treatment by removing makeup and degreasing.
2. The second stage involves applying the formula to individual areas. After a specified amount of time, the chemical peel is neutralised with a special neutraliser which is then washed off with water. Not all acids require a neutraliser – for example, salicylic acid and TCA are removed with water. Sometimes it is necessary to apply several layers of peeling in one session.
3. The third stage involves calming the skin by using an SOS mask, and SPF.
We have three peels available and Dr Inga will help you decide which one will work best for you in a consultation.
Enerpeel, also known as ‘The Inner Peel’
Enerpeel is less abrasive than many other types of peel. The active ingredient in Enerpeel is absorbed in the deeper layers of the skin, meaning that it can achieve results without leaving rashes or marks on the skin’s surface. Enerpeel can be used to control acne, rosacea, and pigmentation, and its rejuvenating effect can reduce the signs of ageing.
