Chemical peel with fruit acids, The Expert Advise


25 November 2019

Every woman would like to have a magic wand to transform the skin in no time. It can be a bit difficult, but nothing it's impossible! We approach to the magic wand with a relatively recent cosmetic technique and the advice of the expert, Catherine Feher.

Today we are going to talk about the chemical peels with fruit acids, mainly glycolic acid, which is a derivative of sugar cane. Sugar cane is more interesting for us in chemical cosmetics than other fruits, we can say, because we are talking about the molecular weight of this fruit acid which is very very low. It means that we have a cutaneous absorption and a skin desiccation effect that is very interesting.

The three stages of the chemical peel

The chemical peel is done in three stages with a decrease of the skin ph in a sequential and progressive way. The first step is the pre-peel, which will prepare the skin for peeling, that will reduce the level of skin acidity, to then receive the peel itself whose acidity rate is around 1 -1.5 which is very is low. The third step is the post-peel to raise the pH of the skin and get the skin prepared for the cosmetics with normal skin ph.

Indications for peeling

There are several indications! The first is to thin the skin to restore a beautiful color, to activate the synthesis of elastin and collagen found in the dermis. The peel has an intradermal absorption. So, this is not a traditional scrub as we used to do before. It is simply a de-keratinization of the skin, but in a chemical way, absolutely not mechanical. Depending on the percentage of peeling, it is also used to reduce stains, work on fine lines, have an in-depth action on everything that is aging skin and acne scarring, increase cellular regeneration. It is a technique that can be done all year round. There is no photosensitization to the glycolic acid peel. It is advisable not to go to the sun the same day and the next day.

The differences between the chemical peel and the mechanical peel

The mechanical peeling does not exist! It's a scrub! The scrub is based on kaolin, it means clay, apricot nuts, or products that are softer where we must rub the skin to have a feeling of removing a minimum of dead layers. With the chemical peel we remove a lot of dead layers and, above all, we attack the regeneration of the living layers, something the traditional mechanical exfoliation doesn't make.

Which type of woman or face for the chemical peel?

The chemical peel can be done on all women, all men, in acne healing. It's not done on infected areas like big acne butts. With this pathology, you do not touch the areas. There is also the peel based on salicylic acid, based on aspirin, which is a very good eraser of sebaceous secretion for people who have acne. The inflammatory side of this dermatosis can be removed.
