Fruit acid or chemical peeling

Fresh and radiant appearance for your skin

Chemical peelings serve to refresh and rejuvenate ageing skin, minimise fine wrinkles, even out scars after acne, soothe rosacea, reduce enlarged pores and eliminate pigmentation marks. Chemical peelings can also effectively help with particularly oily skin. The superficial layers of the skin are removed by means of various acids adapted to your skin type. Depending on the acid, this causes a very strong stimulus on the skin. The removed layers of skin are replaced by new fresh skin as part of the healing process. The skin appears plumper and more even. In the case of discolouration or pigment spots, certain peelings provide lightening.

Procedure

Depending on your needs, the peeling is individually selected and adapted to your skin and requirements. We often use the following active ingredients in our centre, either individually or in combination. They are applied to your skin, work on the skin for a few minutes, are neutralised and then your skin is cared for with a soothing mask.
Glycolic acid: Glycolic acid is made from sugar cane and is considered one of the first active ingredients in modern peels. It has literally caused a revolution in the cosmetic/medical industry and is mostly used in conventional fruit acid peels. The skin is tightened, and visible wrinkles are reduced. Glycolic acid is especially recommended for wrinkles, sun damage and mild acne scars.
Mandelic acid: Mandelic acid is extracted from almonds and is ideal for older, hyperpigmented and oily skin. The fibroblasts as well as the connective tissue build-up are stimulated, and the collagen synthesis is activated. Mandelic acid is especially recommended for men and people with pigmentation spots, large pores and oily skin.
Salicylic acid: Salicylic acid is extracted from willow bark and gained worldwide fame through the drug aspirin. In cosmetics, salicylic acid is mainly recommended for acne and acne scars. It has an excellent effect on sebaceous gland production and has both bacteriostatic and antiseptic effects.
Lactic acid: Cleopatra already knew about it and swore by it. Lactic acid is extracted from milk products and is especially recommended for very sensitive or rather younger skin. The acid is processed into a very light peeling that makes the skin glow.
TCA peel: Trichloroacetic acid is a stronger acid that I like to use as a medium deep peel for scars or hyperpigmentation. The TCA peel is also a very effective anti-ageing peel. However, depending on the findings, you have to expect a few days of downtime.

Questions on chemical peeling

Should I expect any downtime?

Peels can generally cause slight flaking of the skin. However, these are in any case not so disturbing that you would not be socially acceptable. Only with TCA you can expect a few days of downtime.

How often is a chemical peel necessary?

The question of how often a peel makes sense can only be answered individually for your skin. In general, however, a time interval of 3-4 weeks between peelings is recommended.

Can I also have the treatment in summer?

Of course, you have to be careful in summer because of the sun rays. There are special peelings that can also be used in the sunny season. We choose the right peeling in accordance with your skin type. The use of a high sun protection factor is always recommended, regardless of the peeling.

Is a doctor’s consultation absolutely necessary?

No, but we recommend it in order to define a comprehensive treatment concept for you. Our experienced cosmetic team will be happy to advise you on which peeling is suitable for your skin type, even without a doctor’s consultation. A doctor’s consultation is recommended for a treatment plan for acne, rosacea or other forms of sensitive skin, especially if you would like it to be accompanied by medication in addition to cosmetic treatment.

When should peelings not be done?

Peels are not recommended for the following conditions:
• Acute herpes infection or severe susceptibility to herpes
• Oral intake of vitamin A acid preparations (e.g., Ciscutan) during the last 6 months
• Recent facial surgery
• Current radio-photochemotherapy
• Strong tendency to keloid and hypertrophic scars
• Recent cryotherapy (must be at least 6-8 weeks ago)
• Pregnancy or breastfeeding
• Sunburn or severe tanning
• Strong susceptibility to post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation
