Application of peeling
The main factors are the selected method, depth of peeling and width of the area. Peeling can be categorized as superficial, medium and deep. The area where the peeling is going to be applied is cleaned, and the procedure is performed on the basis of the selected product. The fruit acids (Glycolic acid, Pyruvic acid, Salicylic acid, Lactic acid) used in the superficial peeling remove the dead cells which cause the complexion to look dull, help the development of healthy cells and the rejuvenation of the skin. With the chemical peeling, the natural colour, smoothness and texture of the skin can be enhanced. Besides, by tightening the skin, chemical peeling diminish fine lines and wrinkles. Superficial peeling can be applied 3-4 sessions at 2-week-intervals. In every session, based on the reaction of the skin, concentration and duration of applying peeling can vary.
