A chemical peel is an aesthetic treatment that aims to reduce imperfections, including scarring, acne, sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines, and other skin ageing signs. There are various types of chemical peels that can be done to the face. In this article, we will explore the different types of de-ageing facials that are geared towards skin renewal using different peeling solutions.
Acids Used for De-Ageing Facials
Chemical peels that are typically used for the face are made from acids. Mayerling utilizes two main types of acids for peels designed to reverse skin ageing signs and other imperfections.
AHA or alpha hydroxy acid comes from sugar cane and other plant sources collectively known as fruit acids. A popular substance used in chemical peel solutions is glycolic acid, a mild chemical that is derived from sugar cane. This is indicated for dry, sun-damaged skin. While it revitalizes the skin by removing dead skin cells, glycolic acid solutions such as G20 Glycolic Acid Peel by Mayerling also infuses moisturising factors within the skin layers.
Benefits of Using AHA Facial Peels
- Glycolic acid targets all layers of the skin, which means the dermal layers are invigorated by a glycolic acid peel.
- In the epidermal layer, AHAs mostly perform exfoliation, speeding up the elimination of dead skin cells that make the look dull and dry.
- Another benefit of AHAs such as the G20 Glycolic Acid Peel is that it stimulates increased collagen production; an activity that slows down due to aging. This is where the de-ageing benefit of AHAs come from as prescribed application results in the reduced appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and other skin ageing signs.
- Additionally, AHA solutions such as glycolic facial peels also reduce the deterioration of our skin’s existing dermal matrix, resulting in diminished signs of sun damage.
BHA or beta-hydroxy acid is a common ingredient in skin solutions that target acne. Salicylic acid is a popular beta-hydroxy acid solution that works on all skin layers, too. While AHA targets skin issues common among people with dry skin, beta-hydroxy acid is meant for individuals with normal to oily skin. BHAs are potent and effective in reducing blemishes, minimising pores, bumps, clogs, and more.
Benefits of Using BHA Facial Peels
Mayerling’s Nanopeel S20 is a gentle yet effective de-ageing solution for men and women with oily and sensitive skin. Due to its oil-soluble property, BHA can penetrate the pores more effectively for individuals with oily skin. BHA facial peels work excellently in fighting bacterial growth and treat calluses that are evident for people with dry skin. In higher concentrations, BHA may also be used to treat warts. Like AHA, BHA also unglued dead skin cells resulting in exfoliation.
Mayerling De-Ageing Facial Solutions for Superior Skin Renewal
Our skincare regime must change as we age. Younger skin is more resistant to external factors and oxidative stress. However, as we grow older, our skin health deteriorates due to the proliferation of free radicals- naturally-occurring substances that the body produces due to ageing. It is therefore imperative that as we grow older, we modify our skincare to adapt to these changes.
Performing a facial peel at prescribed intervals will slow down skin ageing and reinvigorate the skin. This can be done at the clinic setting or at home. You can book a De-Ageing Facial at a reputable aesthetic clinic to ensure a safe and effective peeling process.
Nano Peel S20 and G20 are equally powerful skin renewal solutions that are designed for home use. Formulated by Mayerling, an established skincare brand in Australia, you can rest assured that your premature ageing skin concerns will slowly but surely be gone over time.
Like any other type of cosmetic procedure, performing a facial peel must be done with the utmost attention and care. Pay attention to the instructions and follow after-care measures that will help speed up your skin’s peeling actions and bring your skin back at its healthiest.
While the skin is peeling, it is crucial to keep your skin moisturised and hydrated from inside out. To maintain skin health during the peeling period, do not forget to include a moisturiser in your skincare regimen. An excellent moisturise that you can use is the Mayerling ADEC Vitamin Facial Moisturiser. This moisturiser penetrates the skin layers to nourish them with skin vitamins, including vitamins A, D, E, and C. With regular application, you will notice your skin becomes smoother and more even. You can achieve a youthful glow simply by scheduling facial peels at prescribed intervals and daily use of the ADEC Vitamin Facial Moisturiser by Mayerling.
