Eliminating skin imperfections with Acid Peels

The most common problem addressed by dermatologists and cosmetologists is visual imperfections of the skin of the face. After all, appearance is a key factor in self-confidence and self-love. Unfortunately, such problems affect almost everyone, but thanks to correctly selected cosmetic procedures, it is easy to get rid of them. An acid peel is one of the most popular treatments for skin flaws.

Acid peeling is a cosmetic procedure in which a chemical solution is used to remove the outer layer of skin. It starts the regeneration of the epidermis and stimulates the production of collagen, which evens out the tone, and improves the elasticity of the skin. The solution is applied to the skin and left for a specific time, which depends on the chosen acids and their concentration.

How does acid peeling work?

Acid peeling penetrates deep into the skin and causes a burn. Its degree depends on the components, their concentration, and proportions, which the cosmetologist calculates during the diagnosis and procedure. This results in exfoliating the outer layer of skin, revealing smoother, fresher skin underneath, and stimulating cell regeneration.

What can be treated with Acid Peeling?

Acid peeling can be used to treat a wide range of skin conditions, including acne, hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone, etc. Another beneficial effect is an improvement of the texture and overall appearance of the skin.

Before conducting the procedure, it is important to consult with a trained cosmetologist to determine whether acid peeling is suitable for you. Provided the procedure and recovery are performed properly, acid peels are a safe and effective way to improve the appearance of the skin.

What are the types of acids?

There are three types of acids used in skincare: alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs), beta-hydroxy acids (BHAs), and poly-hydroxy acids (PHAs).

AHAs, such as glycolic and lactic acids, are water-soluble and work by exfoliating the surface layer of the skin. They are ideal for those with dry or mature skin and can be applied to treat wrinkles and hyperpigmentation.

BHA is a salicylic acid that penetrates and unclogs pores to help treat acne and blackheads.

PHAs are similar to AHAs, but are gentler and less irritating, making them ideal for sensitive skin.
