Peels are one of the best ways to remove dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. It is an intense and deep procedure on the skin that can only be performed by a specialist. Chemical peels are different from regular at-home exfoliation precisely because they use exfoliating acids such as AHA, BHA or PHA, which penetrate the layers of the skin and remove all impurities.

What are the benefits of a peel?

The main purpose of a peel is to cleanse the skin of dead cells and stimulate the regeneration of new cells. Following such a facial, the skin will be brighter and have a greater ability to absorb skin care products. You’ve probably tried a skin rejuvenating wonder product and found that it doesn’t work for you. Try the same product after a chemical peel and see the results.

The treatment is also recommended for people experiencing wrinkles or fine lines, post acne scars, sunburn, hyperpigmentation, enlarged pores or ageing-looking skin. In some cases, a chemical peel is part of a more complex treatment to address a skin problem. For example, in the case of acne, you may need both a peel and an IPL or microneedling treatment.

How many types of peels are there?

Chemical peels carried out in specialized clinics, under careful supervision, can be of 2 types:

  • Medium – chemical acids penetrate only the superficial layers of the skin to stimulate collagen production. Such a peel aims to smooth wrinkles.
  • Deep – recommended in more serious cases of skin problems such as post-acne scarring. After having such a peel you will need a recovery period of at least 7 days. It is a fairly aggressive peel with the skin, but effective at the same time.

Of course, as with any cosmetic treatment or procedure, results may differ from person to person. There are women who need a longer healing period after a peel and women who leave the clinic with a flawless face, as if they had never had a peel. It’s important to understand that every skin type reacts differently to treatments, and in the case of a peel treatment, results can be seen even months after the procedure. Remember that one of the goals of such a treatment is to stimulate collagen production, and this cannot happen overnight.

What time of year is peeling recommended?

The specialist who will perform the peeling will explain that after such a procedure it is necessary to protect your skin from the sun’s rays. This means that you cannot opt for a deep peel in the middle of summer because the conditions are not optimal for the skin to heal. However, you can come to Deluxe Clinic for a professional peel in spring, early autumn and late winter. This is the best time to deeply cleanse your skin and take the first steps towards a flawless, youthful-looking complexion.
