CHEMICAL PEELING
WHAT TO DO AGAINST SKIN AGING?
To slow down skin aging, it is important to maintain healthy habits. Abstaining from smoking is of great importance in this regard, as it reduces the production of collagen and ages the skin prematurely. Likewise, proper sun protection is essential to minimize the harmful effects of UV rays. Regular application of sunscreen with an appropriate SPF and wearing protective clothing can help protect the skin from damage.
In addition to these basic measures, there are also various medical treatments that can help slow down skin aging. One example is fruit acid peels, in which a mild acid is applied to the skin to remove dead skin cells and stimulate skin renewal. This can result in fresher and younger looking skin.
Using moisturizers and serums that contain antioxidants can help provide the skin with important nutrients and protect it from harmful environmental influences. A balanced diet with plenty of fruits, vegetables and omega-3 fatty acids can also help promote skin health.
In summary, there are several approaches to fighting skin aging. A healthy lifestyle, refraining from smoking, proper sun protection, medical treatments such as fruit acid peels and a good skin care routine can help keep the skin young and radiant.
WHAT ARE CHEMICAL PEELINGS?
Chemical peels are intensive skin treatments that have a stronger effect than traditional peels that you can use at home. These peels use acids such as salicylic acid or trichloroacetic acid (TCA) to cause peeling and renewal of the skin. This exfoliates parts of the upper layer of the skin and stimulates skin regeneration. The more intense the peeling, the more layers of skin are peeled off, and the effect penetrates not only to the upper layer of skin (epidermis), but also to the dermis, the underlying layer of skin.
Chemical peels can treat various skin problems, such as acne, scars, pigmentation disorders or fine lines and wrinkles. They can help improve skin texture, even out the complexion and give a fresher, younger appearance. However, it is important to note that results vary individually and depend on several factors such as skin type, skin condition and the peel strength applied.
Before a chemical peel, a thorough skin analysis is usually performed to determine the appropriate type of peel and the optimal strength for the individual skin condition. During the peel, the acid is applied to the skin and left on for a specified time. Afterwards, the acid is neutralized to stop the reaction. The skin may be red, irritated or peeled after the procedure. It is important to closely follow the doctor’s instructions for aftercare and skin care to achieve optimal results and avoid possible complications.
WHAT DOES A CHEMICAL PEEL DO?
A chemical peel has several benefits and can treat a variety of skin problems. First and foremost, a peel stimulates the formation of collagen in the skin again, which makes it firmer and smoother and gives it a firmer appearance. In other words, the skin virtually rejuvenates itself. In addition to these general benefits, chemical peels can also treat specific problems:
  • Removal of light pigmentation spots: Chemical peels can help reduce light pigmentation spots or hyperpigmentation. By exfoliating the top layer of skin, dead skin cells and excess melanin are removed, brightening the skin and reducing pigmentation spots.
  • Eliminating small acne scars: For shallow acne scars, chemical peels can help improve the appearance. By removing the upper layers of the skin, the regeneration of the skin is stimulated, which can lead to a reduction in acne scars.
  • Repair dryness lines and sun damage: Chemical peels can also reduce fine lines and wrinkles caused by dryness or sun damage. By removing dead skin cells and stimulating skin renewal, exfoliation can help improve skin texture and repair the appearance of dryness lines and sun damage.
  • Refining pores: Chemical peels can shrink and refine pores. By exfoliating the top layer of skin, impurities and excess oil are removed, which can lead to a reduction in pore size and an overall smoother skin texture.
It is important to note that the results of a chemical peel can vary on an individual basis and depend on factors such as skin type, skin condition and the strength of peel applied. A thorough consultation with a dermatologist is critical to determine the appropriate type of peel and optimal strength for individual needs and goals.
WHAT TYPES OF PEELINGS DO WE OFFER?
Light peeling: Fresh, radiant complexion
A light peeling can restore a rosy and fresh glow to your complexion. Gentle peeling of the skin begins from the third day after treatment and goes almost unnoticed. You can apply make-up without hesitation, but should avoid intense sun exposure.
Light peels are particularly suitable for beginners. To achieve optimal results, it is recommended to repeat the treatment several times.
Medium peel: Even complexion, fewer wrinkles, pigmentation spots and acne scars.
With a medium peel, you can benefit from a more even complexion and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, pigmentation and acne scars. Dryness lines disappear, large pores become smaller, and scars may partially or even completely fade (deeper scars may require multiple sessions). In addition, peeling leads to a noticeable thickening and tightening of the skin in the following months, as it increases the production of collagen in the skin cells.
With a medium peel, it is important to note that there is a slight social restriction for about a week. During this time, you will have limited ability to perform your usual activities. The social restriction usually lasts about 7 to 10 days.
HOW DO OUR CHEMICAL PEELS WORK?
Each peel is preceded by a detailed consultation, which allows us to discuss the ideal treatment together with you. During this discussion, your individual skin needs, wishes and expectations as well as possible contraindications and risks are carefully evaluated.
Before the actual peeling is performed, the skin is thoroughly cleansed. This removes impurities, oils and make-up residues to ensure optimal preparation for the treatment. In some cases, it may also be necessary to prepare the skin with a special cream before peeling. This cream can help prepare the skin for the peel and possibly improve the results.
Thorough cleansing and preparation of the skin before peeling are crucial steps to ensure that the treatment can be performed effectively and safely. Cleansing removes any barriers and optimally prepares the skin for the active ingredients of the peel.
PROCEDURE LIGHT PEELING
After careful cleansing, a peel substance that is specially formulated for your skin type is applied. This substance contains fruit acids that are used to gently slough off dead skin cells. During application, a slight burning sensation may be felt on the skin, but no severe pain is expected.
Fruit acids work effectively and gently to renew the top layer of skin and promote a fresh, radiant complexion. They stimulate the skin’s natural regeneration process by removing dead cells and making room for healthier, more youthful skin.
During the peel, it is important to follow your doctor’s or dermatologist’s instructions and possibly use recommended aftercare products to best care for and protect your skin after treatment. If you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to discuss them with your specialist. They will provide you with more information and assist you with your individual treatment process.
PROCEDURE MEDIUM PEELING
The application of the peeling substance, which is individually tailored to the particular area and skin type, may cause a slight burning sensation, but this is short-lived. Subsequently, a frosting effect occurs, in which the skin appears whitish to indicate the intensity and depth of the peeling. After a short time, a rosy complexion returns. In the following days, the skin may darken slightly and then it begins to peel.
The treatment usually lasts about 60 minutes. Chemical peeling massively stimulates collagen production in the skin, which leads to improved skin structure and firmness.
It is important to keep the scheduled control appointments after the peeling and also to perform the recommended home treatment, which is prescribed by us. This helps to ensure that the healing process is optimal and the best possible result is achieved.
If you have any questions about the treatment or need more information, do not hesitate to discuss them with your doctor or dermatologist. They will give you the exact instructions for the aftercare and make sure that you take the right steps to ensure a successful treatment and optimal regeneration of the skin.
WHAT DO I NEED TO CONSIDER BEFORE A CHEMICAL PEEL?
Before a chemical peel, especially before medium peels, it is important to prepare the skin appropriately. According to our predetermined treatment plan, special creams are used to ensure that the skin peeling process is effective and without complications. These preparatory creams help to ensure that the peeling process runs smoothly and minimizes the risk of hyperpigmentation after peeling.
It is advisable to consult your dermatologist before chemical peeling to evaluate your skin condition and determine the optimal treatment plan. They will recommend the appropriate preparation steps and creams based on your individual skin type and needs.
HOW MANY SMALL PEELS DO I NEED?
Small peels can be done throughout the year, as often (1x a month) until the skin texture reaches the desired state, or to maintain the actual state of the skin.
CAN PEELINGS ALSO BE DONE IN SUMMER?
By taking the right precautions and using proper sun protection, you can benefit from light peels even in the summer while protecting your skin from sun damage.
WILL THE SKIN PEEL STRONGLY OR CAN YOU ACCELERATE THE PEELING SOMEHOW?
The peeling of the skin after a chemical peel depends on the strength of the peel. However, accelerating it too much or trying to force the peeling process can have negative consequences, such as inflammation, hyperpigmentation or scarring. It is important to be patient and wait for the skin’s natural healing process.
Plucking or peeling the skin is strictly prohibited, as it may cause damage. It is advisable to closely follow the specified aftercare measures and instructions of your doctor or dermatologist. This can help the healing process and reduce the risk of complications.
It is normal for the skin to peel after a chemical peel. This is a natural part of the regeneration process, which removes old layers of skin and makes room for new, healthier skin cells. The intensity of the peeling can vary depending on the degree of peeling. During the peeling process, it is important to protect the skin from sun exposure and use proper moisturizing.
WHEN IS CHEMICAL PEELING NOT POSSIBLE?
Chemical peeling is not possible if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, have acute inflammation or herpes infections on your face, have acute sun damage, or have a tendency to proliferate facial scarring.
