What is a Chemical Peel?
A chemical peel involves the application of exfoliating chemicals to the skin, resulting in the removal of accumulated epidermis skin cells.
Depending on a variety of factors, the effects of peels can reach varying depths in the skin.
Regenerative mechanisms are set in motion in damaged skin layers, the objective is to cause an improvement in the structure and, more importantly, the appearance of the skin.
Peels expose a new layer of healthier skin, resulting in a brighter, more even complexion. Allowing new cells to appear, they plump the skin, helping to improve its texture and tighten their grain.
Peels Are Not All Created Equal
Their efficiency depends on several factors such as:
• The type and concentration of the acids
• The pH
• The penetration into the skin
• The application technique
• The preparation of the skin in the pre-treatment phase
• The type of skin care products used during the period preceding the peeling
Why Choose Pro-Derm Chemical Peels?
• Are formulated with judiciously selected acids and active ingredients including peptides and/or plant extracts. Among the selected acids, there is a new generation of acids: PHAs (polyhydroxy acids), including lactobionic acid and gluconolactone. Less irritating, PHAs make the application of the peel more comfortable and provide better results than AHAs used alone.
• Do not contain any preservatives or aggressive neutralizers such as ammonium hydroxide (ammonia), tromethamine or other harmful buffering agents. The pH is stabilized with sodium lactate (lactic acid), a component with moisturizing and keratolytic properties.
• Are formulated with a particular combination of optimized excipients, guaranteeing the best efficacy and tolerability of the peel.
