What is a facial peel?
Peeling is a treatment that is applied to the skin of the face, whose activity focuses on deep exfoliation. It acts on the superficial layers of the skin and is used to eliminate small imperfections such as acne, spots, or small wrinkles.
The most normal thing is that facial peels are applied in medical or aesthetic centers, although there have been numerous cosmetic products whose activity focuses on this facial rejuvenation technique.
Different facial peeling techniques
When classifying the peels, we should differentiate between two criteria: the depth and the technique used.
Depending on the depth in which it acts, we can distinguish between superficial, medium, and deep peeling. Thus, the superficial one acts on small imperfections and wrinkles, leaving the skin red for a few hours. A deep facial peel is much more effective, but it leaves the skin flushed for several days.
According to the technique used we distinguish between:
- Chemical peel . Applying substances with acidic pH. It can act at different depths and is very dynamic, being able to be used as a sebum-regulator, moisturizer, tone regulator, illuminator, etc.
- Physical peeling . It uses different physical agents, such as the Co2 laser. The purpose is to reduce the thickness of the skin in those areas where there are imperfections.
- Mechanical peeling . It consists of exfoliating the face with the help of brushes, sandpaper, rollers or micro-particles.
All these facial peeling techniques are usually very effective. Their main disadvantage is that they are aggressive to the skin. For this reason, we recommend that you inform yourself, in the aesthetic or medical center of your choice, about the contraindications and precautions to take.
The natural choice
A non-aggressive form of facial peel is natural peels . They act much shallower to the skin, so they are not aggressive and can be used more frequently.
This allows you to achieve a great advantage over the rest of the techniques: you can do it yourself from home. There are many products, but we recommend that you use one with a 100% natural composition.
