Types of chemical peels
There are many types of chemical peels. Each peel has its own points of application and solves certain skin problems.
Glycolic acid is a type of fruit organic acid found in grapes, beets, sugarcane, onions, apple juice, etc. The main source of glycolic acid is sugar cane. After extraction, glycolic acid is highly purified. By its chemical properties, the acid has a low molecular weight and penetrates well through the skin barrier. As a result, we get a pronounced exfoliating effect, stimulating metabolism in the skin. Glycolic acid is one of the most popular peeling and cosmetic ingredients. Often, such cosmetics do not position the cream as a peeling.
Mandelic acid also belongs to natural organic fruit acids (α-hydroxyacetic acid). Obtained by hydrolysis from bitter almonds. The mandelic acid molecule is larger than the glycolic acid molecule, so it penetrates more slowly into tissues and gives a very mild predictable result. Almond peeling is not contraindicated even for sensitive skin.
Salicylic acid - ß-hydroxy acid, has a very powerful antiseptic and keratolytic effect. Salicylic peeling has proven itself well in acne treatment programs, since it affects 2 links in the pathogenesis of acne: 1) restores the patency of the sebaceous glands, 2) has an antibacterial effect.
Peeling for sensitive skin from PCA Skin, USA. Sensi Peel is indicated for rosacea, sensitive skin. After peeling from procedure to procedure, you will see improvements in the condition of the skin - restoration of the barrier properties of the skin, restoration of the hydrolipid mantle - your skin will become more resistant to external factors.
Retinoic acid - tretinoin is the most versatile peeling in acne, hyperpigmentation treatment programs, in anti-aging procedures. Tretinoin interacts with receptors of cells of keratinocytes, fibroblasts, melanocytes, without causing their destruction. As a result, with a minimal peeling period after peeling, we get a quick and tangible result.
Combined peeling that combines the powerful keratolytic effect of salicylic acid and the hormone-like effect of retinol. Able to solve a wide range of problems: oily skin, enlarged pores, acne, post-acne, age spots, photoaging, age-related skin changes. Salicylic-retinoic peeling has a triple effect on acne: 1) keratolytic or exfoliating, improving the patency of the sebaceous glands; 2) antibacterial; 3) a decrease in the production of sebum by the sebaceous glands due to retinol. Thanks to this, salicylic-retinoic peels deserve special attention for oily skin, acne, and enlarged pores. The only limiting factor for salicylic retinoic peels is summer, when retinol + exfoliation can increase the risk of pigmentation. Therefore, this peeling requires the application of SPF creams in the summer.
This type of peeling has a very mild enzymatic (enzymatic) exfoliation of the stratum corneum of the epidermis, as a result of which skin renewal is accelerated, collagen production, hyaluronic acid, the capillaries are strengthened. Peeling can be combined with various vitamin, antioxidant active ingredients. This peel is suitable even for very sensitive skin with rosacea.
