peelings and aesthetics treatments.Peelings  accelerate the natural exfoliation of the skin. It is a safe and common treatment acting on the epidermis and the superficial and middle layers of the dermis.

The destruction of the outer dermic layer will lead to the reconstruction of a new one, a process called  re-epithelialization. The effect in the dermis will be characterized by the formation of new collagen and elastin causing skin remodeling.

The superficial peels use mainly glycolic acid, alphahydroxyacide (AHA) or fruit acid, lipohydroxyacide (LHA) or trichloroacetic acid (TCA 10-20%). The medium peel reaches the upper reticular dermis (TCA 30%). There deep peels reach the mid-reticular dermis in contrast the phenol peel acts on the deep layers of the skin which although very effective, involves significant risks.

Peel: The application of the selected acid lasts about 15 min. The skin should be cleansed. The application  can be a bit painful, it causes a feeling of “cooking” with a light redness that can last up to 2 days.
Post-peel: This is a phase hydration that last few days allowing regeneration of the skin.
There is virtually no complications in the superficial peel. A few small scabs may occur but are still reversible within days.

For a medium peel post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation is possible for a few months especially for darker skin types.
