Exfoliation

These procedures involve exfoliation of the epidermis and the skin to a depth dependent on the preparation used.

This can help compensate for slight wrinkles and accelerate the production of collagen and elastin. It supports antiacne therapy, reducing scars and eliminates pores. The result is rejuvenated, regenerated skin.
It was previously thought that exfoliation only helped to clean the skin by accelerating the removal of the outer cell layers of the epidermis. Yet through exfoliation, the skin actually becomes younger and smoother. Exfoliation often serves as preparation for other cosmetic procedures, as it helps the skin to easily absorb the nutrients contained in cosmetic creams and masks. Even the ancient Egyptians, bathing in milk, unknowingly made use of the exfoliative action of the lactic acid (which belongs to the widely used group of alpha hydroxyl acids) and the nutrients in the milk.
The first mention of exfoliation, in the modern sense of the word, dates back to 1882, when Paul Unna used salicylic acid, resorcinol, phenol, and mixtures containing trichloroacetic acid (TCA). All of these substances are still used in aesthetic dermatology.

Types of exfoliation we offer:

  • Mandelic acid
  • Glycolic acid
  • Pyruvic acid
  • Salicylic acid
  • Trichloroacetic acid
  • Lactic acid
  • mixed exfoliations (Rhonda Allison)

For full results, a few treatments are needed, at intervals of 2 weeks.

Indications:

  • Signs of aging
  • Lacklustre skin with an uneven surface, with lower tension and elasticity, and fine lines
  • Discolouration (postinflammatory, from sun exposure, hormonal, pigment patches)
  • Seborrhoea, enlarged pores, blackheads
  • Acne therapy (comedonic or papules)
  • Treatment of the complications of acne (shallow atrophic scars, postinflammatory hyperpigmentation)
  • Stretch marks
  • Keratosis pilaris on the face

Following consultation, the doctor will select the optimal type of treatment for your problem. 

Contraindications:

  • For a week before the exfoliation treatment, you should avoid depilation, mechanical exfoliation, retinoids, and substances that are irritating to the skin.
  • Men should not shave on the day of surgery.
  • Avoid exposing the skin to the sun or solarium lamps (it is necessary to use filters with a high SPF).
  • Skin allergies.
  • Active herpes.
  • Susceptibility to the formation of keloids.
  • Pregnancy or lactation.
