WHAT IS PEELING?
The term peeling has long been on everyone’s lips. Its origin finds its name in the English word “peel”, to German “peel”. In recent years, different variants of the peeling have developed.
Today we distinguish three variants:
- deep peeling
- medium deep peeling
- the superficial peeling
The latter is probably the most common form of peeling and can also be made by yourself. In the beauty salons , a distinction is made according to three different techniques.
The mechanical peeling is the most common method of treatment and is carried out with different coarse-grained substances. In Japan, for example, coffee grounds are often used. Alumina, salt crystals, sand, plastic particles or the like provide the peeling effect.
That chemical peel is also very commonly used today. Applying fruit acid, lipo-hydroxy acid, tretinoin or other chemical substances will cause peeling of the skin. Chemical peels are also commonly used to treat wrinkles . Previously only feasible in beauty salons, there are now less concentrated chemical peels in the drugstores.
Exfoliation with laser
Laser exfoliation is one of the most intensive methods and is used only in very rare cases. In this case, the skin is stimulated and irritated with a YAG laser or with a carbon dioxide laser. This causes skin peeling. Redness can be seen up to four weeks later.
However, scrubs do not always have to be very expensive, because light scrubs can also be easily made and applied.
