Micro skin peels are an essential addition to skin care. The results that can be achieved with the help of skin care are increased and expedited by these peels.
This is the lightest kind of all chemical peels. These peels help skin get smoother and softer, improve complexion, decrease pore size and discoloration. Also sometimes an improvement in fine wrinkles is possible.
Like other chemical peels, the procedure of micro skin peel is performed by the applying of a chemical irritant to the skin. The treatments are usually done at doctor’s office or beauty salon by a qualificated specialist or nurse and need about half an hour. At first, the skin is gently cleansed and then covered with a glycolic acid solution with concentration up to 20%-30%. Gentle, temporary burning and itching can be mentioned. Dry ice may be applied to stimulate the skin and then it’s covered with moisturizing cream. Make-up can be applied rapidly after the procedure and one can return to usual daily activities. There will be no surface evidence of the treatment, but fair skin may response by a red complexion for a day.
With each procedure, dead surface cells will insensibly shed. The complete results can be seen two weeks after each peel.
