Acid peeling, also known as chemical peeling, chemical exfoliation or acid peeling, is a procedure that exfoliates the epidermis and remodels the skin using chemicals.
Two or three types of exfoliating substances are usually selected during a single treatment, depending on the needs and condition of the skin.
The acid mixtures are applied to the skin in the correct order, which depends on their percentage concentration and pH. The client is supervised at all times by a specialist cosmetologist, who fully controls the timing of the acid peel application and the individual skin reaction.
At MAWAWO we work with acids such as:
- azelaic acid
- lactobionic acid
- ferulic acid
- gammaaminobutyric acid
- glycolic acid
- salicylic acid
- lactic acid
- shikimic acid
- succinic acid
The cosmetologist individually selects the types of chemical peels for the client's skin.
Depending on the acid mixture, we have both strongly exfoliating acids for advanced skin problems and all-over acids that do not cause strong skin irritation.
Acid peeling is indicated for people who have:
- Acne, blackheads, enlarged pores,
- Wrinkles, scars and furrows
- Discoloration, uneven skin tone
- Gray and tired skin
- Perifollicular keratosis, AD.
Acid peeling is performed in a treatment series consisting of 6-8 treatments every 8-14 days. The treatment lasts from 40 to 60 minutes, depending on the area. If you do not perform the treatment series, we recommend combining the acid peeling:
- Manual cleansing + acid peeling
- Cavitation peeling + acid peeling
- Diamond microdermabrasion + acid peeling
The skin after a chemical exfoliation treatment may be red and tender for the next 48 hours. You may also experience mild flaking during this time. If strong exfoliating acids are used, expect stronger peeling of the skin, redness, swelling or the appearance of scabs at the treatment site, this skin condition may last from 3-10 days.
