Facial Peeling is helpful for those individuals with facial blemishes, wrinkles,acne scars , uneven skin tone and pigmentation.Alphahydroxy acids (Aha), such as glycolic, lactic, or fruit acids(e.g. Coconut acid also known as lauric acid) are the mildest of the peel formulas and produce light peels.However, some skin care uses this formula for a better looking skin.This is a very slow and steady process but produces good results.
What Happens During Treatment?
Nothing actually ‘peels off’ during a facial peel. A chemical solution is applied to the face,(in some cases, the toner) and works by dissolving the upper layers of the skin. As the tissue is dissolved, a wound is created on the skin which stimulates the body's healing response, causing new tissue to emerge.
Ageing Of The Facial Skin
Skin ages as we expose it to more and more sun. The more sun our face receives, the more we see fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, age and brown spots and enlarged pores. When skin is protected from the sun (think of your upper thighs or buttocks), the skin is relatively wrinkle-free and younger looking than the face. As the sun does more damage to the facial skin, the skin begins to look older and less healthy.This is where Facial Peeling comes in by helping to restore this damaged skin through the forced creation of new tissue. However,this new (tissue) skin has to be protected from the ultra-violet rays by using sunscreen or sunblock cream.
Facial Peeling is normally done for cosmetic reasons ....to enhance your appearance as well as boost up your self confidence.
