A chemical peel is a controlled exfoliation of the surface layers of the skin and is applied by a specialized doctor. This process is aimed at unveiling a smoother, healthier, and more rejuvenated layer of skin underneath.
Chemical agents stimulate cells, resulting in skin regeneration and the production of collagen and elastin. It is one of the safest and most popular methods of skin regeneration thanks to its immediate and impressive results. The procedure is suitable for all ages, skin types and phototypes but also for all skin issues.
Benefits of Chemical Peelings
- Skin regeneration
- Reduction of visible wrinkles and discolorations
- Treatment of acne scars
- Balancing sebum secretion
- Skin hydration
- Visible improvement of the appearance of the skin
The depth and intensity of the peel depend on the type of chemical solution used, its concentration, and the duration it stays on the skin. Therefore, it’s crucial to have these procedures performed by a certified professional to minimize risks and maximize benefits.
Types of Chemical Peels
Chemical peels are classified into three categories based on how deep they penetrate the skin:
- Light Peels: Light, or superficial peels, gently exfoliate the skin using mild acids like glycolic or salicylic acid. They target the epidermis (the skin’s outer layer) and can be performed every two weeks.
- Medium Peels: These peels use stronger acids, like trichloroacetic acid (TCA), to reach the upper part of the dermis (the skin’s middle layer). They offer more noticeable results and are usually performed less frequently than light peels.
- Deep Peels: Deep peels penetrate the lower dermal layer of the skin. They utilize potent chemicals, such as phenol, to address severe skin issues like deep wrinkles or scars.
Understanding Mediderma’s Chemical Peels
Mediderma was the first company worldwide to introduce a full line of chemical peels (Glicopeel, Melaspeel) in the medical industry. The effectiveness of Mediderma products andprotocols is supported by extensive clinical studies and recognized by leading industry professionals from around the world for more than 30 years. The brand’s cutting-edge approach incorporates nanotechnology to enhance the effectiveness of its peels — the nanopeels.
Why Choose Mediderma’s Nanotechnology-Based Nanopeels?
Nanotechnology in skincare involves the use of particles at a nanoscale level (one billionth of a meter). This advanced technology allows for better penetration of active ingredients, increasing their effectiveness.
Mediderma’s nanopeels leverage this technology to deliver superior skin rejuvenation results. The nano-sized particles in these peels penetrate deeper into the skin, ensuring a more effective delivery of the active ingredients. This not only enhances the peeling process but also helps in addressing the root cause of various skin issues at a cellular level.
Benefits of Mediderma’s Nanopeels
Mediderma’s nanotechnology-based peels offer several advantages over traditional chemical peels:
- Superior Penetration: The use of nano-sized particles allows for deeper penetration of the active ingredients, resulting in more effective treatment.
- Enhanced Efficacy: With the active ingredients reaching the deeper layers of the skin, the efficacy of the treatment is significantly enhanced.
- Customized Treatment: Mediderma offers a range of nanopeels, each designed to target specific skin issues. This allows for a more customized treatment based on the individual’s skin type and concerns.
- Minimized Risks: The controlled release of active ingredients minimizes the risk of skin irritation, making these peels safe for all skin types.
- Quicker Results: Thanks to their enhanced efficacy, nanopeels often deliver quicker and more noticeable results compared to traditional peels.
Who Can Benefit from Chemical Peels
Chemical peels, including Mediderma’s nanopeels, are beneficial for anyone looking to improve their skin’s health and appearance. They’re particularly effective in addressing issues like acne and acne scars, hyperpigmentation, sunspots, fine lines, and uneven skin tone. However, it’s always recommended to consult with a skincare professional before undergoing a chemical peel to understand the best treatment for your specific skin needs.
Pre and Post Peel Care
Before undergoing a chemical peel, it’s essential to prepare your skin by discontinuing the use of retinol, acne treatments, and prescription topicals for at least seven days before the procedure. After the peel, remember to keep your skin hydrated, avoid sun exposure, and refrain from using harsh products that may irritate the skin. Following these guidelines can help ensure a smooth, safe, and effective peeling process.
Mediderma’s Best Sellers
- Mandelac: Mandelic acid-based product line. Mandelic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), ideal for skins sensitive to other AHA acids, due to its mild nature. It is usually used to treat photoaging, irregular pigmentation, inflammatory acne and to prepare the skin for fractional laser treatments.
- Ferulac: Ferulac peel is based on ferulic acid that is famous for its antioxidant abilities. It protects the skin from the action of free radicals and enhances the action of vitamins C &E. It, also, acts against the sun’s UVA and UVB rays and reduces the damage they cause at the cellular level. Ferulic acid is known, furthermore, for inhibiting the action of tyrosinase, an enzyme responsible for the appearance of hyperpigmentations.
- Azelac: Product line based on azelaic acid. It regulations the production of sebum, normalizes the process of keranitoization, is bacteriostatic, inhibits the formation of reactive oxygen species and helps to cope with hyperpigmentation.
- DNA Recovery Peel: DNA Recovery Peel is the first peeling product of nanotechnology that corrects DNA damage. The action of ferulic acid enriched with repairing enzymes DNA, zinc and other amino acids is focused on stabilizing the structure of DNA of the skin. The growth factors in combination with retinol and retinaldehyde accelerate the regeneration of the epidermis and regulate the activity of melanocytes.
- Salipeel: Product line based on salicylic acid. Salicylic acid is known for its keratolytic and anti-inflammatory action, especially in cases of acne, as well as for its antibacterial, anti-aging and photoprotective properties.
