Smoothing out wrinkles – deep exfoliation and stimulation of the skin to produce new cells;

Skin rejuvenation and regeneration – by stimulating collagen and elastin production;

Brightening of discolorations – chemical acids brighten skin pigmentation;

Reduced scars – acne scars and post-injury scars become less visible or disappear altogether;

Remodelling the face, neck and neckline – thanks to increased skin cell metabolism;

A safe and innovative formula – the Renophase peeling solutions carry no risk of irritation, burns and excessive exfoliation, thereby being suitable for use in the summer.

About the procedure

Facial peeling – an ideal solution for skin defects

Chemical peeling is a procedure that causes deliberate chemical damage to the epidermis, which – depending on the preparation – leads to exfoliation (peeling) at different levels of skin. The effectiveness is based on the preparation, carefully selected by the physician. The concentration of its active substance, which is adapted to the individual needs of each skin type, determines the depth of the peeling process.

Such a careful selection of chemical peeling improves the appearance of skin, reduces the symptoms of ageing, increases its suppleness and smooths out wrinkles. The peeling perfectly stimulates collagen and elastin production, thereby preventing the skin from losing its firmness and elasticity.

Effective chemical peeling

Chemical peeling is a procedure that uses various acids to treat the face. We have selected the most effective ones from a wide range available on the market:

  • glycolic acid – penetrates the most deeply into the skin thanks to the smallest size of particles;
  • trichloroacetic acid (TCA) – the most potent acid, producing strong rejuvenating effects;
  • mandelic acid – stronger than glycolic acid,
  • Dermamelan – the improved successor of the Cosmelan peeling.

Chemical peeling – glycolic acid

The procedure is a chemical peeling using a 30-60% concentration of glycolic acid. This chemical substance loosens intercellular connections in the dead epidermis. As a result, the unwanted dead cells are sloughed off (removed by exfoliation).

Glycolic acid can also reach deeply into pores to clean them. The treatment with glycolic acid removes any unnecessary elements from the skin, thereby promoting regeneration of skin cells. Glycolic acid also improves blood circulation in the skin. This leads to improved elastin and collagen production in the skin, thereby making the skin firmer and suppler.

TCA Peeling – peeling based on trichloroacetic acid

The TCA peeling uses the strongest organic acid to slough off the epidermis. A deep epidermal peeling effect is achieved after the application of several layers of the TCA preparation, which leads to exfoliation of the epidermis throughout its thickness and penetrates into the deep layers of the dermis.

Trichloroacetic acid is derived from acetic acid. It is used in the concentration range of 20–50%, the precise value of which is specified by the physician. It is the concentration that determines whether the acid acts superficially or deeply in the skin. This parameter directly translates into the final effect of the procedure. The most commonly used concentration does not exceed 35%.

TCA peeling – acetic acid in action 

After applying the TCA peeling solution to the skin, coagulation of epidermal proteins occurs, which is manifested by superficial whitening of the skin, followed by erythema and swelling. Within 3-5 days, the epidermis (the outermost layer of the skin) turns brown and starts to peel off.

This process is completed after approximately 2 weeks, rendering the skin smoother, firmer and better nourished. After the treatment, the skin requires appropriate care and it is necessary to ensure intense protection against UV radiation over the following month.

Mandelic acid – mandelic acid peeling treatment

Mandelic acid exhibits antibacterial and decolourising activities. The peeling procedure using mandelic acid has been used for many years in the treatment of acne, discolorations, seborrheic (oily) skin and freckles. This acid causes dilated pores to shrink and reduces seborrhoea. Mandelic acid is also used to improve skin tone and boost its regeneration.

It peels off and rejuvenates the skin in an effective yet gentle manner, without causing any irritation. The effects are visible right after the first treatment. The peeling therapy with mandelic acid improves the appearance of fine wrinkles, reduces acne scars and brightens discolorations.

Dermamelan, Cosmelan – to treat discolorations

Dermamelan and Cosmelan are chemical peels that literally clear up pigmented stains in the skin. High concentration of active components makes Dermamelan/Cosmelan an effective solution to remove discolorations that are resistant to other agents. The Dermamelan/Cosmelan peel can be used on any skin type and for different kinds of discolorations.

Apart from rendering the skin bright and smooth, this solution is also highly effective in restoring balance to oily and combination skin. Full effects are visible after 1 month from the therapy. Depending on the intensity of the lesions, it is necessary to perform 1 or 2 procedures.
