Treat your skin with a peeling after sunny days

Peeling is a simple dermatological treatment that consists of renewing the most superficial layers of the skin, leaving it more luminous, uniform and smooth. There are different types of peels that are used depending on different parameters such as skin type, pathology and the recovery time allowed by the patient.

Benefits of peeling

It restores the skin’s homogeneous color, helps to tighten pores, and prevents the appearance of wrinkles by stimulating the formation of new collagen in the dermis. Additionally, various scientific studies have demonstrated the beneficial effect of medical peels in preventing skin cancer, thus promoting the health of our skin.

In cases of acne scars, enlarged pores or thickened and aged skin, several peelings per year can be performed. This also depends on the type of peel used. Superficial peels can be performed more often than medium-depth peels.

Types of peeling

Chemical peels consist of the application on the skin of different chemical substances that have the ability to renew the epidermal barrier and in turn stimulate the creation of new collagen in the superficial dermis.

Physical or mechanical peels are performed using ablative laser techniques or friction tools on the skin, such as abrasion or microdermabrasion.

There are contraindications to be taken into account before peeling: pregnancy, active skin infection, dermatitis or sensitive skin.

Facial peeling

The dermatologist is the specialist who, through clinical history and examination, will determine when this treatment is indicated and if it is necessary to prepare the skin in any way before performing the peeling.

It is essential to avoid sun exposure in the weeks following the procedure, especially during the first few days. It is also necessary to take care of the skin with gentle facial hygiene cosmetics and then apply regenerating moisturizers and sunscreen 50+SPF in the mornings. The weeks following a peel are an ideal time to use specific treatments as the skin is more receptive. It is recommended to use cosmetics with depigmenting active ingredients in case of spots, vitamin C for dull skin, or glycolic acid for photoaging.
