Smooth skin in no time? This is possible with ASPA Medical Peels. Skin aging manifests itself not only in fine and deep wrinkles, but also in sagging, coarsening of the skin structure, pigmentation spots and a pale skin color.
Skin aging is caused by a loss of elastin and collagen, the connective tissue fibers that provide tensile strength and firmness. With a correct peel we can treat the skin in a natural way. After all, the skin is put to work after the treatments. The result? A refined and smoother skin. Before you can undergo a peel with us you must have our Skin Analysis.
Skin specialists today err towards a low concentration/ higher frequency peel protocol. This stems from the greater understanding of maintaining the integrity of the epidermis to reduce complications. Salicylic acid, lactic acid, mandelic acid, fruit enzyme, retinoids and modified Jessners are now considered the ideal ingredient options for peels.
A superficial peel based on the proteolytic enzyme papain, which facilitates the chemical breakdown of epidermal proteins. This peel is ideal for hydrating and restoring increased luminosity.
LACTIC ACID PEEL
Lactic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) indicated for the treatment of fine lines, dehydration, uneven skin tone and acne. It is considered less irritating than glycolic due to its higher molecular weight and is overall deemed the superior AHA option due to the versatility of peeling levels and hydration properties.
A lactic acid peel sheds the epidermis, increases ceramide production, binds water to the skin and produces hyaluronic acid. It is generally recommended to commence peeling at lower concentrations of about 20%, and gradually increase to up to 60% over the treatment period. Multiple treatments (up to 8) are needed for desired results.
SALICYLIC ACID PEEL
Salicylic acid is a beta hydroxy acid (BHA) derived from Salicin, which is found naturally in willow tree bark. Salicylic acid contains the same anti-inflammatory ingredient as Aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid) which gives it an anti-inflammatory effect on the skin.
This peel effectively reduces excess sebum production, penetrates pores and clears oily intrafollicular debris. Both lactic and salicylic acid can be used alone or layered according to the dosage suitable for the patient.
Salicylic acid is always applied first as it is lipophilic, with the hydrophilic lactic acid applied over the salicylic. Generally, more sensitive skin will tolerate 5% salicylic peels and more robust skin will tolerate up to 30%, over a series of 6 treatments.
