Peeling Treatments

A chemical peel is a body treatment technique used to improve and smooth the texture of the facial skin using a chemical solution that causes the dead skin to slough off and eventually peel off. The regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin. Thus the term chemical peel is derived. Some types of chemical peels can be purchased and administered without a medical license, however people are advised to seek professional help from a dermatologist, plastic surgeon, or otolaryngologist on a specific type of chemical peel before a procedure is performed.

Trichloroacetic Acid Peels
Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) is used as an intermediate to deep peeling agent in concentrations ranging from 20-50%. Depth of penetration is increased as concentration increases, with 50% TCA penetrating into the reticular dermis. Concentrations higher than 35% are not recommended because of the high risk of scarring.

Trichloroacetic Acid Peels:

  • are preferred for darker-skinned patients over Phenol
  • smooth out fine surface wrinkles
  • remove superficial blemishes
  • correct skin pigment problems

Fruit Peels
Many people do not realize how acidic fruits such as oranges and apples are. The chemicals contained in these fruits are called glycolic acid. A fruit acid peel is a procedure that uses these natural acids to remove layers of skin. There are several noted benefits associated with such a procedure, including tone and texture improvement.

A fruit acid peel can do more than remove layers of dead and damaged skin. These glycolic acids can also penetrate the remaining skin, providing a thorough cleansing action. This can help prevent and fight acne.

Generally, the glycolic acid is applied to the skin. The acidity levels can vary from one product to another. In many instances, a person begins getting procedures with a solution that has low acidity levels, and gradually, as she returns to have the procedure repeated, solutions with higher acidity levels are used.

After the acid is applied, it is usually left on the skin for five minutes or less. After this time, a neutralizing agent may be applied to the areas where the acid was. The neutralizing agent basically stops the acid from working. Once this is done, the area is usually cleaned and other products such as serum, moisturizers, and sun block may be applied.

The effects of a fruit acid peel are often not immediate. A person may have to have the procedure performed several times before she notices any drastic results. Even after each peel, the results may not be seen for several days or a week. This is because the top layers of skin are not usually immediately removed. Instead, they peel off during the days following the procedure.

Acne

Different Types of Acne Vulgaris or Cystic Acne – On the Face

Acne develops as a result of blockages in follicles, enlargement of sebaceous glands and increase in sebum production.  Comedones are the direct result of sebaceous glands’ becoming clogged with sebum, a naturally o (2)occurring oil, and dead skin cells.  In these conditions, a bacterium can cause inflammation, leading to inflammatory lesions (papules, infected pustules, or nodules), which result in redness and may result in scarring or hyperpigmentation.

Acne Vulgaris – Skin Disease

Characteristics:

  • Seborrhea – scaly red skin

  • comedones – blackheads and whiteheads

  • papules – pinheads

  • pustules – pimples

  • nodules – large papules

  • possibly scarring

Acne affects mostly skin with the densest population of sebaceous follicles (face, upper chest and the back). Acne occurs most commonly during adolescence, and often continues into adulthood (adolescent acne – caused by an increase in male sex hormones which both genders accrue). Some of the large nodules (“cysts”) are severe cases of inflammatory acne. Cystic acne affects deeper skin tissue.

Acne scars are the result of inflammation within the dermis brought on the by acne.  The scar is created by the wound trying to heal itself resulting in too much collagen in one spot.  Physical acne scars are often referred to as “icepick” scars.  This is because the scars rend to cause an indentation in the skin surface. Pigmented scars are usually the result of nodular or cystic acne (the painful “bumps”) lying under the skin.

Causes

Hormonal

Hormonal activity such as menstrual cycles and puberty may contribute to acne formation.   Several hormones have been linked to acne:  the androgens testosterone, dihydrotestosterone (DHT) and dihydroepiandrosterone sulfate (DHEAS), as well as insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1).

Genetic

The tendency to develop acne runs in families.

Psychological – stress

Increased acne severity is significantly associated with increase stress levels.

Infectious

Bacteria in the pores.

Diet

A high glycemic load diet and cow’s milk have been associated with worsening acne. Other associations may be chocolate and salt.

Pigmentation scars can be avoided by preventing aggravation of the nodule or cyst.

Cause: hormonal, genetic, psychological, infectious, diet

Development of acne vulgaris in later years is uncommon, although this is the age group for rosacea, which may have similar appearances. True acne vulgaris in adult women may be a feature of an underlying condition such as pregnancy and disorders such as polycystic ovary syndrome or the rare Cushing’s syndrome.  Menopause-associated acne occurs as production of the natural anti-acne ovarian hormone estradiol fails at menopause.

Management

Many different treatments exist for acne such as medications (topical and oral), phototherapy, and laser.

We created a successful program to treat mild to severe cases of acne.  This program includes 4 basic steps:  preventing blockage of the pores, killing the bacterium, reducing inflammation, and preventing scar formation.  Most of our products are derived from herbs and natural antibiotics for topical use.

  • Royal Wash
  • Bee Pollen
  • Pore Cleanser
  • Micropeel
  • Eucalyptus Wash
  • G/A Acid
  • Dry Lotion
  • 3-Way Acid Solution

It normally causes just dryness of the skin, slight redness and occasionally peeling as part of side effects.  Aside from scarring, its main effects are psychological, such as self-esteem, depression or suicide.  Early and aggressive treatment is, therefore,  advocated by some to lessen the overall impact to individuals.

Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is an exfoliating treatment helpful for sun damages skin fine lines, enlarged pores and acne. Treatment can be performed on the face, neck, chest, hands – just about anywhere. Skin-Care-Peel4Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical procedure performed with a jet of fine crystals. That are propelled across the skin surface and than vacuumed. Microdermobrasion exfoliates and deeply cleanses the outer layer of the epidermis, which accelerates cell turnover for a healthy and more beautiful skin.
