What is chemical peeling?
Chemical Peeling is a technique frequently used in aesthetic medicine. This process is used to treat skin aging, damages, solar exposure, dullness, and skin problems. The principal of skin peeling is to renew skin cells and stimulate the base layer.

The dead cells epidermis being replaced by new cells will renew your skin and procure it with an unrivaled flexibility.

Some type of acids with different concentrations can be used to reach the expected results. We can find among them: glycolic acid and salicylic acid.
The acid glycolic peeling is the most used. It is best known as AHA and is obtained from sugar cane, beets, or grape extracts. It possesses an excellent capacity to penetrate the epidermis to stimulate the skin cellular activity. It is used to reduce skin imperfections such as wrinkles and fine lines, photo-damages, dilated skin pores, and irregular skin.
As for the salicylic acid (BHA), it is known for its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. Salicylic acid is used to control sebum excess, light to moderate acne, and rosacea. This peeling is produced to deeply exfoliate the skin, clean the obstructed pores, reduce inflammation and calm the sebaceous glands hyperactivity. The acid salicylic molecule is the only one that has the capacity to penetrate the acne pimple to reduce the inflammation and sebum production. It is very effective to destroy the bacteria responsible for acne.

Chemical peelings are not recommended for skin with active skin affections such as eczema and dermatitis, atypical inflammation, or all types of lesions or skin infections.
