As we get older, the metabolic rate of the skin slows down and it takes longer to renew itself. Skin becomes thicker, duller looking and drier as oil glands become less active. Exfoliation is essential in helping skin to renew itself, take the dead layers away and making it more receptive to skincare products. Skin peels are a method of exfoliation, helping to give a brighter and fresher appearance to the skin. They are also useful in controlling acne and preventing outbreaks.
Everyoung uses different types of peels,depending on your skin condition. They are classified as:
Are the shallowest exfoliating technique using a mild chemical solution which removes surface cells on the top layer of the skin. This causes new skin cells to form 24 hours after the procedure. New cells also become active in the dermis within a couple of days of the procedure. These cells create collagen fibers which are the support structure of newly generated skin. Elastin fibers, which give skin flexibility, also regenerate at this time.
Medium depth peels use chemical TCA to create their peel to effectively improve many conditions including dull weathered skin, freckling, blotchy pigmentation sun damage, fine wrinkles and shallow acne scars.
TCA is a non-toxic chemical which has been used to perform skin peels for over 30 years. Unlike some other types of peels, TCA peels have the additional advantage of creating a fresh natural appearing complexion, while preserving the normal skin color. For this reason, they are often referred to as “freshening peels”.
Although one peel can significantly improve the appearance of the skin, some skin problems are deeper than others. It is possible that you may require more than one peel to achieve your best results
Medium to deep peels:
This is a deeper peel and is used to reverse the appearance of the aging process. Those who have blemish-prone skin, wrinkles, pigmentation problems, sun damage, or general poor skin quality will benefit the most.
