One of today’s most influential and often-used skin renewal and rejuvenation procedures is chemical peeling. We also consider it to eliminate defects and deep wrinkles without surgical intervention. Such peeling is a radical approach. So, it should be done in a specially equipped cosmetologist’s office and only if serious indications exist.

In cosmetology, there are three types of peeling. The difference is in the degree of effect on the skin.

The light or superficial chemical peel destroys several layers of keratinised, dead skin cells. However, it is the most gentle type of peeling with chemicals. Besides, the absence of side effects after the procedure allows you to continue the usual way of life.

Specific problems

The median chemical peel destroys the utterly horny layer of the skin down to the basement membrane. But, within seven days after the procedure, you need home treatment. It is due to flushing of the face and fine-to-large-flake skin peeling. The effect persists for a long time. The most common type of peeling is Jessner’s peeling.

Chemical peeling: indications and contraindications

The most complex and deep chemical peeling is the exfoliation of the epidermis with action on the basement membrane. It is a practically chemical burn of the skin with subsequent regeneration.

The long-term effect lasts several years, but you can do the procedure once. The rehabilitation period is approximately five months.

Cleansing of the skin

A doctor cosmodermatologist uses concentrated acids to renew and cleanse the skin. However, selecting ingredients depends on the patient’s age, skin condition, and existing problems.

Sometimes, we perform chemical peeling before plastic surgery. It is also a preparation method for deep dermabrasion (the skin polishing technique).
