Rejuvenate Your Skin With Facial Peeling

With age, our skin cells lose their capacity to renew themselves. Over time the dead cells that have accumulated on the skin’s surface give it a very rough and uneven appearance. If you have skin pigmentation, sunspots, fine wrinkles or any other evident skin defects, you should consider a facial peeling treatment. The Vitamin Exfoliation process is a very effective professional skin care treatment.

Facial peeling is very similar to exfoliation in terms of the principle it’s based on. In this, the upper layers of the epidermis are scrubbed in order to reveal a less wrinkled and more radiant skin underneath. This treatment also helps improve the appearance of the dilated pores, acne or oily skin, giving it a more radiant look. Aside from this, peeling also helps fade the scars and clear brown spots that reach deep wrinkles as well as superficial wrinkles and fine lines.

Cosmetic Peels- What Are They?

A cosmetic peel is a very safe and effective method to remove all the superficial debris, while stimulating the skin’s lower layers in order to start the natural repair process. A facial peeling helps soften the skin texture and brightens its appearance. When done at regular intervals, it can also help tighten pores and lighten pigment spots. This process promotes the natural turnover of old skin cells, lending the new skin a very fresh and smooth appearance.

This procedure can help improve the appearance of the face and neck, chest, arms, hands and legs. Depending on the level of skin damage, deep, medium or superficial chemical peels may be used in the treatment. The rule of thumb is that the deeper the chemical peel, the lengthier the recovery timeframe. Our expert medical esthetician will recommend which peel will be best-suited for your skin problems.

The Potential Side Effects

The side effects of facial peeling are very mild and rare. Most people are able to easily return to their regular activities or work, right after their treatment. After the peel, you may notice very little redness and experience sensitivity for up to 48 hours. This is a very normal reaction, which indicates that the treatment is working. Sometimes, there may also be sensitivity to sunlight and flaky skin, light crusting or dry skin may last for about a week after the peel.

About Photorejuvenation

Aside from facial peeling, we also offer excellent photorejuvenation treatment. Your skin can age either due to your lifestyle or environmental factors. Pigment spots, fine wrinkles or blemishes and enlarged pores are all very common skin problems.

We at Jean Gilbert Clinic perform laser photorejuvenation. This is a very safe and comfortable treatment in which a high-intensity laser beam is used to deliver a controlled amount of heat for targeted skin care. This combined with a cooler treatment provides optimal photorejuvenation results while reducing its side-effects. This is one of the best ways to rejuvenate tired and aging skin.
