Medical peelings

Exfoliation and revitalisation of the epidermis only with medical peels

Medical peels - what do they involve?

The term medical peelings is very broad. It encompasses different types of treatments for exfoliation and revitalisation of the epidermis, which can be achieved by a variety of more or less invasive methods.

Types of medical peeling. What is a peel?

Medical peeling can be performed with varying effects, even covering the deep layers of the skin. It can be done:

  • Within the epidermis - the so-called surface peeling,
  • Covering the entire epidermis and the upper layer of the skin - the so-called medium-deep peeling,
  • Reaching into the deeper layers of the dermis - the so-called deep dermis.

Depending on the exfoliation method used, the peel can be:

  • Mechanical - here, the epidermis is abraded using corundum or diamond discs or corundum crystals, in other words: microdermabrasion,
  • Physical - using laser, liquid nitrogen, nitrous oxide, ultrasound - cavitation peeling,
  • Chemical - using acids, otherwise known as chemabrasion, enzyme peeling.

The frequency of treatment depends on the type of treatment and the individual needs of the skin and the desired results. The deeper the peel, the greater the risk of an adverse reaction.

What do cavitation peeling, enzyme peeling, facial exfoliation and other such treatments offer?

The main task of medical peelings, such as cavitation peeling, enzyme peeling, facial exfoliation or microdermabrasion, for example, is to exfoliate the epidermis or epidermis and deeper layers of the skin in effect:

  • Epidermal cell revitalisation,
  • Skin regeneration,
  • Enhancement of collagen and elastin production,
  • Antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory effects,
  • Reduction of fine wrinkles,
  • Regulation of sebum secretion,
  • Lightening of minor discolouration,
  • General dermostimulation of the skin and skin cleansing.

Preparation for surgery - general principles

When preparing for a medical peel treatment - cavitation, enzyme, microdermabrasion or any other - remember the following:

  • The skin must not be irritated by anything,
  • Seven to 10 days prior to treatments, do not use self-tanners, depilation, electrolysis, waxing, abrasive sponges, dermabrasion, retinoids or skin irritants,
  • Strong creams, e.g. with benzoyl oxide, retinol or sulphur, AHA acids, should be discontinued a few days before the treatment,
  • Men should not shave their face on the day of treatment,
  • Do not perform a facial massage 2-3 days before a facial scrub,
  • One month before the peeling, do not sunbathe or use a solarium.
  • In the case of certain peels like glycolic acid, appropriate preparations should be used to prepare the skin (for acidification).

Medical peelings - post-treatment management

After a medical peel, it is important to follow the recommendations linked to the specific type of peel indicated by the specialist. The general rules are:

  • Absolute prohibition of scraping off flaky skin,
  • No sunbathing or use of tanning beds for 4 weeks,
  • Ban the use of AHA creams for 14 days,
  • Intensive moisturising of the skin,
  • Use of sunscreens with an SPF of at least 30,
  • Make-up cannot be applied until several hours after the treatment.

To maintain and enhance the effect of the medical peel, vitamin C creams can be applied - twice a day. Immediately after or to prolong the positive effect of the treatments, the peels can be combined with other treatments.

How does the medical scrub work?

Medical peeling works by exfoliating dead skin and stimulating skin regeneration. The active ingredients in the peeling preparations penetrate the skin, removing impurities and stimulating collagen production.

Is medical peeling safe? 

Yes, a medical peel is safe, provided it is carried out by an experienced professional. Prior to the treatment, a skin assessment is carried out to select the right type of peel and to control any skin reactions.

What are the benefits of a medical peel? 

The medical peel has many benefits, including improved skin texture, reduction of hyperpigmentation, smoothing of fine lines, reduction of the appearance of acne scars and overall skin revitalisation.

How long does a medical peel treatment take? 

The duration of a medical peel treatment depends on the type and depth of peel and the area treated. Typically, the treatment lasts between 30 and 60 minutes.

Is medical peeling painful? 

Sensations during a medical peel may vary depending on the individual sensitivity of the skin. Appropriate anaesthetics are applied to minimise discomfort and ensure patient comfort.

How long does the recovery process take after the procedure? 

The recovery time after a medical peel depends on the depth of the peel. Typically, the skin may be red and tender for a few days to a week. Your specialist will give you detailed instructions on how to care for your skin after the procedure.

How often can medical peel treatments be carried out? 

The frequency of medical peel treatments depends on the individual needs of the skin. A specialist will assess the condition of the skin and recommend the appropriate number and interval of treatments.

Is a medical peel suitable for every skin type? 

A medical peel can be tailored to different skin types, including oily skin, combination skin, dry skin, acne and mature skin. A specialist will assess the condition of the skin and select the appropriate type of peel.

What are the potential side effects of medical peeling? 

Potential side effects of a medical peel may include redness, flaking of the skin, a slight burning sensation or a tight feeling. These symptoms usually resolve spontaneously within a few days.

Can a medical peel be combined with other cosmetic treatments? 

A medical peel can be combined with other cosmetic treatments, such as needle mesotherapy or laser therapy. Depending on the individual needs of the skin, a specialist can suggest a comprehensive care plan.
