Facial Peelings

Facial Peeling technique involves superficial burn of the skin layers through chemical action of an acid. Depending on the depth of the skin we get, we call the peeling as superficial, medium and deep.

Peeling actions include removing surface irregularities of the skin, skin keratosis and certain types of facial wrinkles. It is a highly recommended procedure to apply in the context eyelid blepharoplasty, and to treat fine wrinkles of the lips (commonly called "barcode") in patients who are not candidates for treatment with botulinum toxin. Certain peels can be used to decolor skin pigmentations and to smooth the skin pores, giving the impression of a softer and brighter skin.

It is important to make adequate prior photoprotection and of course after the peeling, as reactive hyperpigmentation may occur in certain patients.

It is recommended to perform a preliminary test of tolerance to reduce the risk of allergies and intolerances to the alpha-hydroxy acids most frequently used.

Some of the drugs used in the most frequently used peels are: kojic acid, salicylic acid, glycolic acid, lactic acid, trichloroacetic acid, etc.

It is normal to experience itching sensation during the procedure, and feel the skin peeling after certain days after application of the drug.
