Definition of a Peeling

"Peeling" is an English term which means "action of shelled / peeling". This technique has existed since ancient Egypt and its principle is simple: apply a scrub on the face that will eliminate the most superficial layers of the skin (epidermis) that will be replaced by new cells from the deeper layers (those of the DermIS). The surface cell renewal will result in erasing facial blemishes, unify the complexion, erase wrinkles.

There are several types of peels, from the weakest to the strongest, that your doctor will offer you according to your type of skin and especially your expectations.

Several peel sessions spread over a few weeks may be necessary to achieve good results.

During this period, the skin may tingle or heat. This sensation is comparable to a sunburn and may nevertheless be mitigated if one shows the face of the patient.

This felt is quite normal: as long as the glycolic acid is applied, it is 'melt' the most superficial layers of the skin. When the doctor deems that the application time is sufficient, it applies a neutralizing lotion that traced the pH and thus stops the action of glycolic acid.

Once the skin is cleaned, we will proceed to the application of a restorative nourishing vitamins and hyaluronic acid-based cream.
