Chemical peeling is an instrumental aesthetic medicine treatment to correct wrinkles, skin thickening and pigmentation anomalies typical of photo-aging. This result is obtained by applying to the skin, biologically inert, one or more exfoliating substances which, causing damage to the dermal tissue, determine the consequent regeneration of the epidermis and / or dermal layers. Basically, thanks to this procedure, the damaged old fabric is replaced by the new regenerated tissue. The degree and depth of the damage of the skin to be corrected determine the choice by the surgeon of a superficial, medium or deep peeling. The superficial peeling is usually used in cases of initial defect and mild degree or in patients who do not accept the postoperative discomforts of medium and deep peels.
70% glycolic acid peeling is indicated in cases of mild facial photo-aging with superficial wrinkles. In these cases, to obtain satisfactory results, about 4-6 sessions are usually necessary, repeated after 2-3 weeks.
Peeling indicated in the treatment of moderate photo-aging and in the treatment of acne. It has the ability to break up the superficial corneocytes, exfoliating them. For a good result you need a cycle of four three to four sessions at a distance of 10 days each.
Pyruvic acid peeling is indicated in subjects with mild and moderate photo-aging, with numerous discolorations, thickened and porous skin. We recommend 4-6 sessions, to be repeated every 3-4 weeks.
This peeling is recommended in patients with more severe photoaging, with sagging skin and diffuse dyschromia or in those subjects that have acne scarring outcomes. It is recommended to use single or combined with Jessner’s solution (to encourage exfoliation and to stimulate fibroblasts to produce new collagen). The final result is appreciable about 3-4 weeks after treatment.
Phenol, the basic active ingredient of this peeling, is an acid that acts as a keratocoagulant, penetrating the superficial skin proteins up to the reticular dermal state. This action causes an inflammatory reaction and a consequent remedial action that implies a stimulation of the production of collagen and elastin in the dermis with associated reordering of the new cells of the various epidermal layers and consequent improvement of the aesthetic aspect of the oval of the face. It is indicated in the treatment of deep wrinkles, cutaneous furrows and acne scars.
It is a combined peeling, which looks like a lightening yellow paste based on cogic, azelaic, retinic, phytic and ascorbic acid. Exfoliation is moderate, but its lightening power is remarkable, especially against stains due to hormonal changes. It is indicated in the treatment of epidermal melasma, benign hyperchromic lesions of the epidermis, superficial and average wrinkles and acne sequelae.
It is a ‘soft’ peeling to renew and rejuvenate the skin, realized thanks to the scientific medical research on nanotechnologies. Compared to traditional peeling treatments, high-tech products are less aggressive. They are not liquids, like those used today, but in gel allowing the localized and differentiated application with peeling at different concentrations and formulations with the use of simple fingertips.
the nano-particles are very small but being round they have a large surface and
absorb the active ingredients of the peeling (glycolic acid, citric acid, etc.)
which are conveyed deep into the skin. In this way it is possible to realize an
effective peeling at a lower concentration of the chemical reagent. All this
allows to use the peeling also on the eye contour, a very delicate area.
