Skin Peeling Plus Exfoliation
Skin Peeling Plus Exfoliation Skin’s cellular turnover occurs approximately every 28 Days. However, if the age of the individual is 50, then one could have as little as two days of exfoliation in that cycle. As we age, regular skin shedding can slow down to take place only every 45 days. Hence, this means a substantial build-up of dead skin, often resulting in course texture, amplified wrinkle depth and even congestion, which leads to breakouts. Dead skin cell build-up also hampers product penetration. This results in aged-looking skin if you don’t exfoliate and use appropriate skin care.
Dead cells also can cause the skin to look dull and lifeless. The cellular desquamation cycle may be impacted by skin conditions such as Psoriasis, Dermatitis or Eczema. In skin disorders, cellular turnover occurs at a faster rate. Therefore, it is imperative to understand the condition of the skin and the desired end goal before selecting a suitable Skin Peel.
Skin Peels, in their various forms, trigger an exfoliation process within the skin known as desquamation. What is the desquamation of the epidermis? Epidermal desquamation is the process of the invisible shedding of corneocytes from the stratum corneum’s outermost layers.
How the skin responds and recovers after this procedure depends mainly on the age and general health of the skin.
TWO PRIMARY SKIN PEEL CATEGORIES
- Chemical Skin Peeling
- Manual Skin Peeling
Chemical Skin Peeling will accelerate the natural process of exfoliation induced by using a chemical agent such as Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA) and Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA).
Manual Skin Peeling will also accelerate the natural process of exfoliation within the skin, this time through Granular (Micromechanics) or Enzymatic agents. Enzymatic agents are the fruit extracts of Papain and Bromelain. Granular examples are Microdermabrasion and Bicarbonate-based Peels.
What to Do
We know cells have a finite number of cellular divisions in our lifetime (programmed “ageing” regulated by a telomere-length reduction after cell division). Therefore, If you exercise the body, then why not exercise the skin cells to keep a healthy-looking skin.
Active ingredients have greatly improved over time, and so, as a result, we have some exciting options. The variety of Skin Peels available for skin renewal, there are also Smart Peels with intelligent delivery mechanisms, such as encapsulated Mandelic Acid (AHA). This rejuvenating Peel is suitable for all skin types, phototypes and concerns. Mandelic acid benefits sensitive skin and conditions like Melasma and Rosacea.
The depth of treatment is influenced by the PH level of the skin in addition to the type and concentration of the formulation’s active ingredients. Other factors that influence the depth of peeling treatments are the delivery mechanisms, application methods and duration of skin contact. Vibrant results are almost always achievable with a gradual approach. It’s imperative to gradually increase the Peel Intensity at a healthy balance between controlling skin inflammation and achieving results.
