Peelings are used in aesthetic medicine to smooth wrinkles and fine lines by getting rid of the surface layer of the skin and thus the most badly damaged cells of the epidermis. They make the skin smoother and stimulate the synthesis of collagen and elastic fibers. Some of them may also erase stains of the skin due to aging process.
Peelings help to treat pigmentation marks, fine lines, small acne scars and sagging of the skin. There are different kinds of peeling, depending on the chosen chemical agent. The stronger is the chemical agent the deeper and visible will be the effect, although the strongest peeling agents may require deep sedation during treatment. It is also true that in most of the cases a mild peeling treatment in your doctor’s office solves most of the problem.
