Chemical Peels

For a voluptuous face…

Definition and objectives

The chemical peel is similar to an exfoliation: the upper layers of the epidermis are rubbed out for a brighter and less wrinkled skin. The peel has been in use for a very long time. The formula, the amount applied to the face, the method of application and the exposure time are determining factors of success.

Procedure

The chemical peel is intended for medical use and is applied in medical practice. There are few contraindications.

I practice two types of peels:

Superficial peel

For a brighter skin...

This peel with alpha-hydroxy acids (AHA) removes dead cells and activates the production of collagen. The main ingredient is glycolic acid, extracted from sugar cane, and acids from fruits or plants.

This is a fast procedure with no severe sequelae, even if the skin is slightly pink afterwards.

This type of peeling can be practiced all year.

Medium chemical peel

For a new skin...

The medium peel acts on the dermis. It causes a burning sensation when applied, and requires social eviction for a few days.

Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) is the main agent used. It causes a precipitation of skin proteins represented by the icing of the skin (white color) at the time of application. It accelerates the renewal of cells in the dermis and stimulates collagen production.

The skin feels tight for 48 hours and flakes on the 3rd day revealing a new skin.

TCA improves skin texture, removes stains, reduces wrinkles and tones the tissues.
