Peelings

Peeling is a non-invasive technique used to treat skin imperfections. Stimulates skin cell renewal through controlled peeling through the application of chemicals. It is a safe and effective method and one of the most sought after and performed aesthetic procedures worldwide.

There are two types of peels:

1- Physical peeling: it is done through equipment or abrasive creams that induce a mechanical peeling on the skin.

2- Chemical peeling: it is done with the application of chemical substances, such as salicylic, glycolic and retinoic acid, which remove the superficial layers of the skin causing a skin regeneration.

Chemical peels are one of the techniques performed at Clínica Dr Marta Beauty to treat the following conditions:

  • Scars
  • Acne Scars
  • Melanoses (age spots
  • Keratoses
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Melasma
  • Skin damaged by the su
  • Flaccidity
  • Wrinkles
  • Intimate rejuvenation

The degree of peeling varies according to the type of chemical peel used, which may vary according to its different way and at different depths of the skin:

Superficial peeling or lunchtime peel- a slightly aggressive acid is used that affects only the epidermis, the first layer of the skin. The objective will be to cause a peeling of the skin in order to eliminate the aged skin and, subsequently, to renew it.

It is indicated mainly in the treatment of blemishes, melasma and fine lines, improving the tone and texture of the skin, giving it a fresher and healthier appearance. This peel is completely painless and can only cause a slight burning sensation. Medium peeling – this peeling reaches a moderate depth, damaging the epidermis and the upper part of the dermis, causing a thicker and darker peeling. It is indicated to attenuate medium wrinkles and deeper marks, being very effective in more mature skins, and also in the treatment of acne scars. This peeling is also completely painless, and can only cause a slight burning sensation or burning sensation.

Medium peeling – this peeling reaches a moderate depth, damaging the epidermis and the upper part of the dermis, causing a thicker and darker peeling. It is indicated to attenuate medium wrinkles and deeper marks, being very effective in more mature skins, and also in the treatment of acne scars. This peeling is also completely painless, and can only cause a slight burning sensation or burning sensation.

Deep peeling – is applied in order to penetrate deeply into the dermis, the middle layer of the skin, in order to remove damaged cells. It is indicated for the treatment of very photoaged skin with very deep wrinkles and important keratoses. In the case of a more aggressive peeling, it is done only in a hospital environment, through the application of anesthesia and with the necessary monitoring. The results are much more significant, however their risks and discomfort are greater.

At the Dr Marta Beauty Clinic, superficial to medium peels are performed, using the following highly chemical substances
security and high recognition in the market:

 – Cosmelan, by Mesoestetic®
It is an innovative depigmenting treatment designed to eradicate or attenuate the acquired skin spots of melanic origin, at the same time that the tone is uniform and the luminosity of the skin is increased. It can be used on all types of skins and can be used all year round due to its high safety.

  Deactivates the enzyme responsible for the production of melanin and for the formation of darker spots;
2º  Uses a mixture of skin lightening agents and botanical ingredients in order to eliminate excess pigmentation. This method starts in the office with the hands of Drª Marta Duarte who applies, under a strict protocol, the degreasing solution and the face mask

Once the cosmelan 1 mask is applied, the patient can go home where he / she will continue the treatment with Cosmelan 2 (anti-stain cream for home use).

 – Dermamelan, by Mesoestetic®
It is a depigmenting method that provides intensive corrective action on skin hyperpigmentations, while regulating the overproduction of melanin in melanocytes, inhibiting and controlling the reappearance of new spots.

It acts as a corrective and regulatory agent, achieving a short and long term result, in order to maintain the results.

These procedures are quick, painless and have no side effects, except for some redness and erythema of the skin.

However, these are effects that do not prevent you from resuming your daily routine with complete normality immediately after treatment.

The results of this procedure are not immediate as we have to wait for the correct renewal and healing of the skin. However, at the end of a week, some results start to show, such as, reduction of wrinkles and spots, more uniform, rejuvenated and luminous skin, these results being sustained over time. The repetition of this treatment will depend on the type of peeling recommended.

During this treatment it is important to have a daily routine of face care, namely the application of sun protection, preferably for sensitive skin. In general, you should clean and hydrate properly and avoid the use of topical irritating substances.
