The peel is the number one procedure used for various treatments of the face (and body). It consists of chemically irritating the skin to force it to regenerate and produce new cells. The peels have different levels of intensity, primarily based on glycolic acid, salicylic acid or trichloroacetic acid. They can be used separately or combined within one treatment. We use the VI Peel which is considered as one of the finest brand on the market.
There are three types of peels: Superficial peels, Medium peels, deep peels. Depending on their intensity, peels are recommended to give real radiance to the complexion, brighten and revitalize the eye area (dark rings), deeply cleanse the skin (oily skin, enlarged pores, blackheads…), reduce lines and the appearance of wrinkles, fade dark spots, and treat certain scars (acne, stretch marks, etc.).
The treatable areas are: Face, neck, neckline, hands, body…
What takes place during the session?
The doctor will apply the peel on cleansed skin. The application time ranges from 3 to 20 minutes, depending on the treatment required. The same applies for the number of sessions. The stronger the peel, the greater the flaking of the skin will be. Downtime applies particularly to anti-aging peels. A healing cream is applied at the end of the session.
