Retinoic peels or chemical peels: which is better?

Chemical peels have been at the peak of popularity and demand among leading specialists in aesthetic medicine for a long time and occupy an honorable place among skin rejuvenation procedures.

Chemical peels in cosmetology

Chemical peels are an important part of the path to healthy skin, they are an effective treatment option suitable for various skin types and conditions, they can improve the texture and even out skin tone, are effective in combating acne and post-acne scars and in the treatment of aging skin for the purpose of correction of wrinkles.

Peeling is a cosmetic procedure, the purpose of which is to exfoliate dead or damaged skin cells, to accelerate cell renewal and activate metabolic processes in the skin.

How does peeling work?

Chemical peeling activates metabolic processes in the skin, forcing the "dozing skin" to wake up and put itself in order. This is achieved by applying a special chemical solution to the skin, which affects the skin cells. Peeling increases collagen and elastin, which significantly affects the elasticity, relief and tone of the skin.

What is the difference between peels?

Chemical peels are classified depending on the depth of penetration: superficial, middle and deep, as well as based on the active active ingredient. The most common ingredients in chemical peels are alpha hydroxy acids, beta hydroxy acids, trichloroacetic acid and retinoids. Peels with retinoids should be given special attention, since they differ in the mechanism of action on the skin, they affect the very DNA of skin cells.

Retinoic peels

Retinoic peeling occupies a special position among all types of peels and has long been loved by specialists in the field of aesthetic medicine due to the breadth of application and unmatched clinical results. Particular success in the development of retinoic peels was achieved by PCA Skin, USA, which created a retinoic peel based on highly purified retinol - Pure Retinol. Whoever has done retinoic peeling at least once, undoubtedly could not help but notice that the face becomes yellow or orange after applying the peeling. This is due to the fact that retinol stains the skin. PCA Skin Retinoic Peel is completely transparent and does not stain the skin. Moreover, highly purified retinol produces more pronounced clinical results and restructures the skin.

Retinol is a natural substance found in our daily diet, it is vitamin A, which has many derivatives that are similar in their mechanism of action but with varying efficiency. Vitamin A has a healing and regenerating effect on the skin.

The difference between retinoic and chemical peels

The main difference between retinoic peels and other chemical peels is that it acts directly on the DNA of the skin cells, thereby rebuilding it from the inside, at the genetic level. This is due to the possibility of penetration of retinol through the lipid layer of the skin, as it is a fat-soluble substance.

DNA, retinol

Retinol stimulates the division of skin cells, giving the face a fresh, radiant appearance, reduces the increased production of melanin pigment and the intensity of age spots, has an anti-cancer effect, reducing the risk of skin cancer. Retinol is also the only active anti-aging ingredient that has been proven in reliable clinical studies.

Combining retinoic peeling with other treatments

Retinoic peeling will harmoniously complement any anti-aging procedure, improve complexion, reduce enlarged pores and fine wrinkles, tone and elasticize the skin, and make the skin glow.

After retinoic peeling, as well as after other professional treatments, you should take a responsible attitude to the rehabilitation period, namely, to apply sunscreen with an SPF factor of at least 30, because a considerable part of the result depends on post-procedural care and adherence to the recommendations of a specialist. PCA Skin has specially developed home care products that will make your recovery period comfortable.
