How to rejuvenate your face with peeling?
Indications for use and features of
The essence of chemical peeling in the salon is that due to special substances intensive removal of the upper layer of the skin occurs. And this leads to the activation of protective processes in the body. In an accelerated rhythm, substances that are needed to restore the skin begin to be produced.Among them, hyaluronic acid, collagen and elastin are most important. When artificially created by a specialist, there is an increase in skin tone, smoothing its relief and smoothing wrinkles. Performing a deep peeling in the salon, clients get rid of many age-related changes, because their elimination is possible under this procedure.
Despite the fact that, most often, this eliminates age-related skin changes on the face, this procedure is also used for other areas of the body - neck, hands, and décolleté.
Peeling efficiency is high for people of any age and with any type of skin. Here it is important to correctly formulate the recipes in which chemicals will enter in certain proportions. Only an experienced cosmetologist will be able to determine what kind of chemical peeling is right for you and how much active substances you need to take.
Chemical peeling has the following effects:
- exfoliating (improves relief, is able to get rid of age spots, fights against thick skin);
- regenerating (protective properties of the skin are improved, making it a reliable barrier);
- moisturizing (provides intake of hyaluronic acid);
- getting rid of scars and stretch marks;
- anti-inflammatory (skin cells are activated).
But remember that such a procedure will not be able to return the elasticity of the skin and overcome its strong sagging. This will require other methods of cosmetology in the cabin.
Before the procedure, the cosmetologist will advise you and discuss with you the decision on the use of any type of anesthesia or other aids. He will also determine the type of peeling that will be able to cope with your problems and select the necessary recipes from active ingredients.The duration of chemical peeling largely depends on where it is carried out and on its type. On average, this time can be a quarter of an hour or more.
Types of peeling
If we are talking about chemical peeling, which is carried out in the cabin, and not at home, then experts distinguish three main types of it.
For its implementation are used fruit acids with a concentration of 10-20%. This peel is very similar to the one that is carried out at home. But here substances are taken in greater concentration, and therefore, the effect of them is better. In this case, you can not worry about harming your skin, as a specialist will select the optimum ratio of substances for you.
Recommend this procedure in cases where it is necessary to refresh the face, moisturize the skin, there is a need to eliminate small age-related changes and cosmetic defects. Superficial cleansing is performed when the skin is very dry, there are traces of inflammatory processes on it, there are fine wrinkles and a slight pigmentation.
To achieve a lasting effect, it is recommended to attend not one, but several sessions.
Trichloroacetic or salicylic acid and combination substances are used for it. Such peeling is the "golden mean" between the traumatic deep and light superficial. Its effectiveness is higher than with superficial cleansing. After this procedure, many clients in the cabin note the effect of rejuvenation and increase elasticity. In this case, the upper layer (epidermis) is completely peeled off, and the thickness of the dermis increases.
Thanks to this cleansing, you can cope with such problems as loose skin, well-visible wrinkles, scars, age spots, arising from age or sun, weak skin inflammation.
Median peeling will not cause you much discomfort if it is conducted by a competent specialist. In this case, the beautician will select the substance or a combination of them so that it is possible to achieve the desired result with minimal discomfort. Besides the fact that the specialist selects recipes and formulas, he will also recommend that you use anti-inflammatory drugs. To facilitate the procedure and reduce the discomfort will help the ice and the fan.For greater efficiency, you must complete the course.
After the procedure, the skin must be given the opportunity to recover. This will take from 7 to 10 days. Over time, multiple crusts may appear on the face, which then disappear. You may also notice a slight reddening of the skin, which will last up to 14 days.
You will not be able to do such peeling at home, and you don’t need to do it. Given that the deepest layers of the skin are affected, the specialist should control the procedure. Perform such a purification using phenol derivatives. Despite the fact that this method is the most traumatic, it allows for significant correction of skin defects. With the help of strong chemicals, the skin layers are practically burned, and in their place completely new structures are formed.
It is recommended to perform deep peeling only after 60 years. Sometimes with the help of it, strong defects of the skin are locally eliminated. It helps with a strong sagging, pronounced wrinkles, with scars and pigmentation.
During the procedure, possible severe pain. At the end it is necessary to comply with bed rest. Carry out the procedure in specially equipped operating rooms and under general anesthesia.Recovery time can be delayed up to two months, during which time you should change your home routine a little.
After the procedure
Since the skin is injured during chemical peeling, it is recommended to use special soothing and moisturizing agents at home to restore it. Also within a few weeks a specialist may prescribe you the use of anti-inflammatory and sunscreen. During this period, the sun's rays can greatly harm your skin, so you need to create a semi-permeable barrier to protect it. In this regard, it is recommended to carry out the procedure in a season when there are few sunny days and mostly cloudy weather.
It is important to understand that the peeling does not act directly, but only starts the updating processes. So do not expect quick results. You can see the effect only after a couple of weeks, when the skin is renewed and restored. To achieve results without any harm to your skin, follow the recommendations given by a specialist.
Efficiency and safety
The results of peeling depend on many factors.Do not think that the composition, which came to one person, is able to give exactly the same result on another. For effectiveness, it is important to take into account gender and age, the presence of any diseases (and not only on the skin), medication, the quality of cosmetics used, the uniqueness of the sebaceous glands of a particular person in a particular skin area. Even for one person in different areas of the skin, the same composition can give different results. Therefore, it is difficult to effectively perform this procedure at home. After all, the dose and the ratio of substances should be selected very individually.
In order for the procedure to bring the desired effect and to be safe for you, you should contact only an experienced cosmetologist. He will certainly hold a preliminary consultation for you and determine whether you have any contraindications for such a procedure. Despite all the safety, there are still some restrictions that should be adhered to in order not to harm your body.
Another reason for which to apply chemical peeling at home without the control of a specialist is not recommended - this is the presence of a large number of contraindications.
You will be discouraged from it when there is a viral disease in the acute stage. It can be herpes, certain types of warts and severe acne. Despite the fact that peeling is a good way to get rid of acne and post-acne, you need to wait for the period when the rash goes into remission.
The presence of allergic skin diseases (eg, eczema) is also a contraindication for peeling. Indeed, in this case, the procedure may provoke a worsening of the situation. If you want to peel, then it is better to confine to formulations for use at home. In them, the concentration of active substances is small, which will reduce the risk of skin damage.
If you spend the external treatment of certain tumors with the use of ointments and other means at home, you should inform your beautician. The interaction of certain drugs with acid can cause burns.
Conducting traumatic cosmetic procedures (eg, hair removal) less than a week before the peeling is not desirable. And with mechanical and laser dermabrasion skin cleansing can be carried out only after six months.
If you have external injuries (abrasions, cuts), then peeling should be carried out only after their complete healing. After all, the effects of acid on damaged areas of the skin can be very strong and lead to burns.
Individual intolerance to drugs cannot be ruled out. After all, the body of each person is unique, and to predict how he will react to a particular substance is quite difficult. Therefore, in the cabin before the procedure, always carry out a test that is able to show how your skin will react to the drugs used. In the presence of an allergic reaction from chemical peeling, you better give up and clean your skin with more gentle formulations at home.
