Mouth peel: Attention Required! | Cloudflare
Skin Sensitivity and Peeling Inside the Mouth – Dental Health
Q2. I’ve heard that my old silver fillings probably contain dangerous mercury, and I should have them replaced. I don’t think insurance will pay for replacements — but I don’t want to leave poison in my mouth! Is it really dangerous to leave old fillings in place? What are the options for replacing them?
— Jill, New York
The safety of dental silver fillings (amalgams) is one of the hottest topics in dentistry today. Silver fillings are called amalgam restorations because they are an amalgamation of several metals (tin, zinc, copper, and silver) combined with elemental mercury. These metals are mixed together and then placed in the carefully prepared holes made by the dentist. Over the years, people have questioned whether the mercury portion of the fillings leaches, or comes out, and if so, whether the mercury affects their health.
It seems as if the answer is no. Recently a series of articles appeared in national publications, including the Wall Street Journal (September 12, 2006), questioning the safety and long-term efficacy of amalgams. However, an FDA advisory panel had reported on September 6 that there was no new scientific evidence to justify regulation of dental amalgams. The report was based on a review of 34 recent studies, which found “no significant new information,” though the panel did say that more research is needed.
Immediately after the FDA announcement, the American Dental Association issued a news release welcoming further study on amalgam safety, while reiterating that “the overwhelming weight of scientific evidence supports the safety and efficacy of dental amalgam” and that amalgam should remain available for dentists and patients.
I have a number of amalgams in my mouth that my dad (also a dentist) placed there 30 to 40 years ago. I personally feel they are safe and would not remove them unless I had a crack or decay around them. Amalgams are amazing restorations and are relatively low-cost, especially given the length of time that they last.
However, fillings don’t last forever; your dentist must check the integrity of them during your regular cleaning appointments. If it should come to pass that an old amalgam needs replacement because of a crack or decay, you do have options. Replacement fillings can be made of gold (one of the best materials for teeth but no longer stylish), tooth-colored bonding materials, or tooth-colored porcelain. Discuss the options with your dentist to determine which material is best suited for your mouth. People who grind their teeth may be better off with gold restorations since porcelain tends to fracture more easily. It also depends on how much tooth structure has been lost to decay and what type of bite you have.
Q3. I am 30 years old and had been seeing the same dentist my whole life, then I moved and had to find a new one. I went for my first cleaning with the new dentist and was told I had 10 cavities. I was shocked since I had just gone for a cleaning 6 months earlier and there was no problem at all. In fact I have no history of having any problems with my teeth. How do I know if I really have that bad of a problem? My teeth never even bother me.

Dentists trained in U.S. dental schools receive very similar dental educations. There are standardized textbooks, curriculums, and local and national exams to take. These exams are written, oral, and practical. Thus, a diagnosis should be the same everywhere. However, a treatment plan or treatment options can vary. These differences can depend on the dentists’ abilities, knowledge, experience, confidence, ethics, concern and continuing education.
All dentists should agree on whether or not a cavity (a hole in the tooth) exists. But many dentists may disagree on when to treat the cavity, for there are different guidelines on this. Some dentists treat a cavity when it is only in the enamel (outer layer of tooth structure) whereas others would make note of this hole to watch and treat only if it gets deeper. Many others would wait until the cavity penetrated into the dentin (the second layer of tooth structure). This is a judgment call—there’s no right or wrong.
The answer to your question is to get a second opinion from a well-respected dentist in your area. Word of mouth may be a good indicator but in seeking a second opinion, make sure you analyze several factors including :
- Respect in community
- Office staff
- Office cleanliness
- Education and continuing education
- Reputation for honesty
- Level of compassion and caring
The inside of my mouth is peeling
Anxious about peeling skin on the inside of your mouth? The lining of the mouth can be neglected professionally, with the GP leaving it to the dentist and the dentist leaving it to the GP.
Fortunately help is at hand. Implant Surgeon, Specialist Oral Surgeon and Co-founder of The Implant Centre Dr Bill Schaeffer gets to the bottom of oral skin peeling:
Is it normal for your mouth to peel?
The skin on the inside of the mouth is called the Oral Mucosa. It works as a tough flexible barrier, preventing food from penetrating the mucosa while still being flexible enough to allow for the wide range of movements involved in eating and speaking.
Small localised areas of peeling of the oral mucosa are very common and resolve within a few days. More widespread or longer-lasting peeling of the oral mucosa should be checked out by your dentist or doctor.
What might cause mouth skin to peel?
A number of things can cause the skin in your mouth to peel, but the most common causes include the following:
• Thermal burn
The most common cause of peeling of the oral mucosa is a burn after eating food that is too hot.
• Chemical burn
In a similar way to a thermal burn, chemical burns can cause the skin to peel. We sometimes see this if a patient has let an aspirin dissolve against the gum to try and relieve a toothache. These are both localised areas of peeling.
• Autoimmune disorders
More rarely, some autoimmune disorders can cause the oral mucosa to peel in a more widespread pattern, sometimes dramatically so.
Oral skin peeling treatment
Treatment for the skin in your mouth peeling will obviously depend on the cause. The simple causes like thermal or chemical burns should resolve fully after a week or so.
The autoimmune disorders require an accurate diagnosis to be made and then specialist treatment can be started.
If the skin peeling is widespread – you must seek treatment for this from your doctor or dentist.
Do you have Stevens-Johnson syndrome?
Stevens-Johnson syndrome is a rare, serious disorder of your skin and mucous membranes. It’s usually a reaction to a medication or an infection.
Often, it begins with flu-like symptoms, followed by a painful red or purplish rash that usually affects the mouth and lips but can be more widespread. This then spreads and blisters. Then the top layer of the affected skin dies, sheds and finally heals.
Stevens-Johnson syndrome is a medical emergency that usually requires hospitalisation so you would definitely know something was seriously wrong if you had it.
Could it be oral keratosis?
Oral keratosis is a thickening of the keratin layer of the oral mucosa. Because the oral mucosa is always wet, this results in a slightly raised white patch.
The most common site that this is seen is in the palate of smokers where the hot irritant smoke causes the skin covering the palate to lay down a thicker layer of keratin in an attempt to protect itself.
Should you see your GP about skin peeling?
Localised burns are easy for a patient to diagnose themselves and resolve fully after only a week or so. More widespread peeling of the mouth must be checked out by a dentist or a medical doctor.
If any patient has an ulcer in their mouth that takes longer than two weeks to fully resolve, then they should see their dentist to get it checked out as soon as possible.
You should visit a doctor if you are worried about any symptoms in your mouth that have not resolved after two weeks, though it may well be that your dentist will be more familiar than your doctor with conditions that can affect the mouth.

Questions to Ask If You Find Loose Skin in Your Mouth
When you notice that some skin appears to be peeling off inside your mouth, you may wonder if it’s a big deal or not.
If the damage doesn’t have a simple cause, such as a burn from hot coffee, you may have to go into detective mode to gather information about the situation. Additional information can help you and your dentist get to the bottom of the issue. Here are some questions to ask yourself if you notice loose, shedding, or peeling skin in your mouth.
1. Does the Problem Coincide With a New Oral Health Product?
Some dental patients show visible reactions to some ingredient in an oral health product. If you’ve recently started using a new toothpaste, mouthwash, or even dental floss, consider switching back to your previous routine for a couple of weeks to see if the problem clears up.
Be sure you consult your dentist before making any changes in your dental health routine though. And if you suspect you’re currently experiencing an allergic reaction, don’t take it lightly; some allergies can be life-threatening, so be sure to seek medical help right away.
2. Do You Have Food Allergies?
Your oral health products aren’t the only thing you could be sensitive to. Another possible cause of a reaction in the mouth could be an allergy to food you ate. If you have known allergies, the problem could coincide with an allergic reaction. Or, you may have allergies that you don’t know about yet.
If your dentist can’t find any other reason for the peeling skin in your mouth, consider asking about allergy testing.
3. Are You at Risk for Thrush?
A Candida yeast overgrowth can sometimes result in oral thrush. The typical symptom is white patches, which could look like peeling, loose skin, especially on your tongue. Yeast can also make lips and skin at the corners of your mouth peel and crack. If this sounds at all similar to what you’re experiencing, be sure to go to your dentist for a diagnosis and treatment. Oral thrush can be simple to treat.
You’re more likely to get oral thrush if you have a pre-existing condition such as diabetes or if you’ve recently taken antibiotics. If this doesn’t apply to you and you still end up with oral thrush, talk to your doctor about getting some tests done to see if you have any immune system problems.
4. Do You Have Additional Symptoms?
If your skin isn’t just peeling but also hurts and looks different than it used to, you should definitely see your dentist. Oral thrush isn’t the only option that could cause white spots on the inside of your mouth; alternatively, you could be developing a condition such as oral lichen planus.
Oral lichen planus, unlike candida, is a chronic condition that affects the skin inside your mouth. This condition requires a skin biopsy for diagnosis. The condition often comes with symptoms such as swelling, pain, lacy-looking dots or lines, and blisters. Peeling doesn’t always occur, but it can be a symptom of this condition.
5. Do You Bite Your Cheeks?
Some people may chew on the insides of their lips or even cheeks and damage the skin, either inadvertently or consciously. This habit could be due to bruxism, a condition where you grind your teeth in your sleep. Or the habit could be considered a body-focused repetitive disorder if it occurs while awake.
As you may know, once you’ve developed a habit, stopping can be difficult. Talk to your dentist about treatments for bruxism if you suspect you bite your cheeks at night or treatments for the habit of biting your cheeks during the day if you do so consciously. Since stress can be a trigger, try to lower your stress levels as well if possible.
As you can see, a problem with peeling or loose skin in your mouth can result from a variety of problems. So if you do experience an unusual amount of peeling skin inside your mouth or any other concerning symptom with your mouth or tongue skin, be sure to consult your dentist.

The Strangest Mouth Conditions (and How to Avoid Them)
Dry mouth, bleeding sores, and swollen gums—those are all prevalent oral health issues. We’ve discussed them quite a bit. But for a little more unusual symptoms in the mouth, you may be a little unprepared if you’re not completely aware of their existence. Here are some of the more strange mouth diseases you could encounter, and how to prevent yourself from experiencing them.
Strange Mouth Diseases
A white furry and coated tongue is generally a sign of some infections. It’s a temporary condition, usually lasting less than two weeks and is almost always never a cause for concern. However, if alongside a white-coated tongue, you’re experiencing pain or the symptoms stay for an extended period, it’s important you see a dentist right away.
Sometimes, white patches on your tongue can be caused by Leukoplakia, which is the most common of white tongue culprits. It is the result of an overproduction of cells in the lining of the mouth and tongue. When this happens, a protein known as keratin is deposited, causing discoloration.
The white “fur” obviously isn’t fur. In cases where Leukoplakia isn’t present, it’s generally caused by a buildup of fungus or bacteria, so what you’re seeing and feeling in your mouth is just that: bacterial build up or fungal yeast.
The best way to avoid a white coated tongue is, in most cases, good oral health care. Alongside your regular brushing and flossing, make sure to brush your tongue. Tongue scrapers have been known to greatly reduce mouth bacteria and bad breath.
Burning mouth syndrome
Burning mouth syndrome (BMS) is either painful burning or a tingling sensation in your mouth. This perpetual irritation has many potential causes of diabetes to thyroid disorders. It has also been linked to high blood pressure and drug use. These common causes can help your dental professional in identifying the cause, considering how hard it can sometimes be to find an exact cause.
The problem with BMS is that the doctor must rule out every other possibility before diagnosing it. Since it’s a condition that is very hard to determine the cause of, there is no one way to treat it. Treatments may range from vitamin or mineral supplements to stimulating saliva production.
BMS can range drastically from moderate to severe. Some patients who suffer from BMS endure constant scalding pain for months or even years. It is more common in women than men and, recently, one female patient helped make a breakthrough in finding out what causes BMS.
The best way to avoid BMS is to avoid harmful substances. It’s a bit of a no-brainer, but avoiding tobacco, spicy or acidic foods, and alcohol is the only advisable preventative measure for BMS, since there’s not just one cause of it, and the disease is overall rather mysterious.
Mysterious metallic tastes
Sometimes we get a bad taste in our mouths, and we can’t get rid of them. The usual measure would be to brush our teeth or rinse our mouths out. But when you get the overwhelming taste of pocket change in your mouth, and it won’t go away, it can be very distracting and even upsetting.
A few different things can cause a random taste of metal in your mouth, commonly known as parageusia. We’ve discussed how medicine can create a metallic taste in your mouth, but pregnancy or diseases like Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s can be causes as well.
Since your sense of taste is closely related to your sense of smell, sinus and nasal issues can create this mysterious taste. It’s very common, in fact. If you suffer from allergies, sinus infections, or the common cold, you are likely to experience this at least subtly.
Since there are so many causes for this taste change, we can’t limit the preventative measure down to one thing. It may not always be avoidable either. If the reason for the taste change is a sinus infection or a cold, there isn’t much to do besides taking in a lot of vitamins to minimize the effects of getting sick.
Sometimes when medications cause this problem, the medications we take are required, so it isn’t advised to stop making them without discussing it with a doctor first. However, another cause of this taste change is poor oral health. That is something you can work on to minimize the chances of this happening.
Skin peeling inside the mouth
The skin in your mouth is a wet, mucous membrane, so when it starts to dry out and peel, you’ll notice almost immediately. Usually happening inside the cheek, you’ll see your skin begin to lift off the surface and come off completely.
There are a few reasons the skin in your mouth could peel. First of all, it may be caused by a slight allergic reaction to your toothpaste. This is rather common and not very serious, but it’s essential that you switch toothpaste and talk to a dentist as allergies can worsen over time.
In worse cases, mouth peeling can be a sign of horrible gingivitis or untreated gum disease. If this occurs, you’ll see your gum line receding before it starts to peel away, and you’ll need to see a dentist ASAP. Another more painful cause of mouth skin peeling away is a canker sore or ulcer.
Worst case scenario, you may have Stevens-Johnson Syndrome. This condition is an immune hypersensitivity that can cause your mucous membranes to peel and fall away. Other symptoms of SJS are a headache, malaise, joint pain, sputum expelled from coughs, and painful rashes and lesions. This is a severe condition that requires immediate medical attention.
Stevens-Johnson Syndrome can only be contracted from certain medicines or bacterial infections. It’s important to stay on top of that and be careful. If you ever get SJS, let your doctor know you’ve had it, so they can help you avoid getting it in the future.
For other instances of ulcers and gingivitis, make sure you maintain superb oral health. Schedule an appointment with your dentist if you start to experience symptoms of infection. The number one thing is knowing how to avoid mouth disease. Also how to handle it when it comes so that you can prevent worsening symptoms.

Why is the inside of your mouth peeling?
Quite a common symptom of many conditions, peeling in the mouth can be a painful and inconvenient experience. Peeling inside of the mouth, on the roof and back of the throat, as well as the skin in the inner lips can be indicative of an auto-immune condition, a nutrient deficiency, bad eating habits and even an allergic reaction.
Others have experienced peeling of the skin inside the mouth after taking certain oral medications.
Which auto-immune diseases can cause this?
The phrase ‘auto-immune’ describes the condition where the body’s immune system attacks its own host, i.e. your own body. It can mistake part of your body, like your joints or skin, as foreign. It releases proteins called autoantibodies that attack healthy cells, explains Health Line.
Auto-immune diseases that can cause peeling skin inside of the mouth are Discoid Lupus Erythematosus (also referred to as DLE, Rheumatic Skin Disease, and Oral Lichen Planus. All these diseases are known to cause oral lesions.
Malnutrition happens when humans do not consume enough healthy, nutrient dense food. We all have a daily recommended allowance for the vitamins, minerals and calories we take. If we consistently fall short of these needed nutrients, we run the risk of becoming malnourished, which can be devastating to one’s health.
According to the Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research: “Malnutrition may alter the homeostasis, which can lead to disease progression of the oral cavity, reduce the resistance to the microbial biofilm and reduce the capacity of tissue healing. It may even affect the development of the oral cavity.”
Mouth sores and oral skin peeling can also be a result of poor dental hygiene. The mouth is wet and warm enough to be the perfect breeding ground for germs. Make a habit of brushing, flossing and rinsing your mouth with warm salt water three or four times a day, preferably a few minutes after meals.
Why You Shouldn’t Ignore Your Peeling Gums
Are you experiencing peeling gums? This may be a symptom of a larger health issue. Even before we learn how to hold a toothbrush on our own, we begin to understand the importance of keeping our teeth cavity-free. Not to say that’s always enough motivation to want to brush our teeth as often and for as long as we should or to avoid the things that can increase our risk of getting cavities. It just means that we get that our teeth are important to our oral health.
The trouble is, most of us never come to appreciate the tissue surrounding our teeth in the same way. But in many ways, the gums are just as valuable of an indicator of our oral health as the teeth. And not just our oral health; our overall health, too.
Studies are beginning to confirm what periodontists have suspected for a while now: There’s a direct link between gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, and several potentially fatal diseases, including heart disease and diabetes. People with gum disease, which includes half of American adults, are also at greater risk of developing certain types of cancer and Alzheimer’s disease.
Still, too many of us are willing to shrug it off when we notice our gums are bleeding or peeling a little after brushing. As long as I don’t have any cavities, I’m good, we think. But they can be early warning signs of a potentially serious problem. And the longer we go on ignoring them, hoping they’ll disappear on their own, the bigger the threat becomes to our overall health.
What are peeling gums?
Peeling gums is a pretty accurate name for what’s going on. You’ll notice small bits of loose dead tissue sloughing off your gums and the inside of your cheeks. It’s not enough to gag you. In fact, you’re likely to chew on them or simply swallow them without giving much thought to what it is.
Peeling gums may also be accompanied by:
- Bleeding gums
- Discoloration on your gums and the inside of your cheeks
- Changes in the texture of your gums
- Sores or blisters on your gums
Gum disease is a common cause of peeling gums. (More on that in a moment.) But there are also a number of oral hygiene products that can have the same effect, including over-the-counter whitening products. Aside from failing to do what they’re supposed to and eating away at your teeth, home whitening kits can also trigger a slew of issues with your gums, like peeling.
If you’ve noticed any peeling or another adverse effect, such as increased gum or teeth sensitivity, after using a whitening kit, toothpaste, or mouthwash, stop using the product and schedule an appointment with your dentist, just to be on the safe side.
It’s not just whitening mouthwashes or toothpaste, either. Most mouthwashes contain some type of alcohol, which can dry out the mouth and irritate the gums. Similarly, a 2016 study found that low-pH toothpastes were likely to cause peeling gums, among other symptoms.
You don’t need to start experiencing symptoms to change your mouthwash or toothpaste. Look for a mouthwash that says “alcohol-free,” or something to that effect, on the label. Toothpastes are a little trickier because there are so many varieties. Look for one that’s marketed as “sensitive,” or try a brand made with natural ingredients, like Tom’s of Maine.
Where does gum disease fit into this?
You could be brushing with a Tom’s toothpaste and swishing with an alcohol-free mouthwash and still be experiencing peeling. In that scenario, you may have gingivitis, the earliest form of gum disease, without realizing it.
Gingivitis can cause the gums to become red, swollen, and bleed easily. It can slip under the radar because there’s usually little, if any, discomfort. And it can develop for a number of reasons unrelated to our brushing-and-flossing regimens, including: smoking, stress, hormonal fluctuations, the use of certain medications, certain systematic diseases, aging, and a genetic predisposition. Though, the most common cause is inconsistent brushing and flossing and not keeping up with twice-a-year dental checkups.
The good news: Gingivitis is reversible as long as it’s treated early. If, however, it’s left unchecked, plaque can spread and grow below the gum line. Toxins produced by the bacteria in plaque will irritate the gums and stimulate a chronic inflammatory response in which the body basically turns on itself, and the gums and bone that support the teeth gradually breakdown.
For what sounds like a very dramatic process, the symptoms can be pretty mild. In other words, one day you’re shrugging off peeling gums. The next, you’re staring into the mirror at deep pockets that have formed around your teeth. This much more serious form of gum disease, which is known as periodontitis, as you may already have realized, is a lot more difficult (and costly) to remedy.
If you’re reading this to be extra cautious, keep doing what you’re doing: brushing and flossing twice a day and seeing your dentist every six months. If, however, you’ve noticed some occasional peeling, don’t ignore it. You may barely notice it, and it may not be painful, but it’s most likely a sign that something’s not right in your mouth.
In such a case, it’s always better to be safe than sorry. See your dentist or schedule an appointment with me. Either way, we’ll determine the source of your peeling and then tailor a treatment plan that will have you smiling again in no time.
Symptoms, Causes, Tests and Treatment
What is oral lichen planus?
Lichen planus is a chronic, or long-term, disease affecting the skin and mucous membranes, the thin layers of tissue that line body cavities and secrete mucus. When lichen planus appears in the mouth, it is called oral lichen planus.
How common is oral lichen planus?
The skin and oral types of lichen planus together affect an estimated two percent of the population.
Who is likely to have oral lichen planus?
Anyone can develop oral lichen planus. Women are twice as likely as men to develop the condition. Most cases of oral lichen planus occur in adults age 50 and older.
Is oral lichen planus contagious?
No, oral lichen planus does not spread from person to person.
Symptoms and Causes
What causes oral lichen planus?
The exact cause of oral lichen planus is unknown. Research suggests the condition is related to your genetic makeup and immune system.
Some people develop oral lichen planus after taking certain medications, such as beta-blockers and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Diseases such as hepatitis B and primary biliary cirrhosis may also cause oral lichen planus.
What are the symptoms of oral lichen planus?
For most people, oral lichen planus (reticular type) appears as white patches or web-like threads on the inside of the cheeks. These patches and threads are raised slightly. This type of lichen planus is usually not painful.
In some cases, oral lichen planus (erosive type) appears as bright red gum tissue. In severe cases, ulcers develop on the gums of mucosal tissues inside the mouth, or on the tongue. Eating and drinking spicy, hot or acidic foods or beverages can be painful for people with oral lichen planus.
Skin lesions are common among people with oral lichen planus. Almost half of people with oral lichen planus also have skin lichen planus, which causes itching.
Diagnosis and Tests
How is oral lichen planus diagnosed?
Your doctor diagnoses oral lichen planus by examining your mouth. In many cases, doctors take a tissue sample (biopsy) to confirm the diagnosis and rule out other diseases.
Management and Treatment
How is oral lichen planus treated?
Mild oral lichen planus may not need any treatment. Instead, your doctor monitors your condition. Doctors recommend specific treatments if symptoms worsen.
Milder forms of the disease usually go away on their own over time, especially if medications triggering the condition are discontinued.
Doctors usually treat more severe cases of oral lichen planus with one or several medications, including:
- Lidocaine (Lidoderm®, Xylocaine®)
- Tacrolimus (Prograf®, Protopic®)
- Dapsone (Aczone®)
- Cyclosporine (Neorral®, Gengraf®)
What complications are associated with oral lichen planus?
Oral lichen planus is a chronic, or long-term, condition. Occasional flare-ups are common.
More severe forms of oral lichen planus, called erosive lichen planus, can make it painful to eat, drink or brush your teeth.
Some research indicates a greater likelihood of developing oral cancer if you have erosive oral lichen planus. Approximately 1 to 3 percent of people with oral lichen planus eventually develop oral cancer but the question is still to be resolved due to some cases that may not have been true lichen planus. Regardless, patients with erosive lichen planus should be followed every three months for evaluation.
Can oral lichen planus be prevented?
There is no way to prevent oral lichen planus. You can lower your risk for oral lichen planus and other oral conditions by eating a variety of fruits and vegetables, not drinking large amounts of alcohol and quitting smoking.
Outlook / Prognosis
What is the prognosis (outlook) for people with oral lichen planus?
For many people, oral lichen planus eventually disappears. However, the condition can take years to resolve. Flare-ups are common, even with treatment.
When should I call my doctor?
If you have any of the symptoms of oral lichen planus, your doctor can examine your mouth to determine if this disease is causing your condition.
Retinoic (retinol, yellow) peeling – “Complete disappointment”
Honestly, I just wanted to complete the course of glycolic peels. I really liked the result from them, the skin improved every week for a month. After the third peel, the beautician suggested that I make a yellow one. Knowing about its consequences (difficult rehabilitation), I was afraid, because my work is connected with people, and I have no opportunity to take a break. The beautician convinced me that there would be just peeling and it would not be scary to appear in front of people.When I asked how I would appear today, I was told that the applied peeling on the face would just look like a tan. Well, well …
In general, on Wednesday at 11.30 they gave me the final touch of the peeling on my face and left
to die with a message that after 6 hours I had to wash it off. When I looked in the mirror, I realized that it was never a tan, but the most yellow face. Anyway. I decided that it would “fail” little by little, as the beautician promised me. However, even after 3 hours, when I had an hour-long communication with a person at work, the skin was very even yellow. And I had to explain myself and generally feel awkward. The working hour passed incompletely, and the person looked askance at me constantly and also could not concentrate.
Okay. I washed off this muck after 6 hours. The skin was reddened and shiny. By nightfall, it began to shine so much that my husband asked why I smeared myself with sparkles. In the morning, discomfort began around the mouth and the lips themselves began to burn, as if chapped. The discomfort increased with each passing hour. By the evening of Thursday, everything around the lips was covered with red spots, it became painful to open my mouth.On Friday morning, “flowers” were replaced by “berries”. The skin on the chin and around the mouth began to flake more and more. It was already impossible to smile, to bite off an apple – too. And I work with people, with pronunciation (I am a language teacher). Having exhausted myself for several sessions and endlessly smearing post-peeling cream around my mouth, I went to see my husband on the road and when he bent down to even kiss me lightly on the lips, I involuntarily hit him in the face in pain. Everything around my mouth ached unbearably, it was impossible to eat or talk.Everything burns and burns and stretches the skin, like on a drum. Went to sleep. I got up in the morning – my whole face itches. There are scraps around the mouth and the peeling has already begun. The cream was smeared every moment when there was an opportunity (in between classes). The corners of her lips ached so much that I could not really speak, let alone eat. Eating food turned into hard labor. I began to lose weight, despite the fact that there is nowhere to lose weight.
But I still did not know what awaited me when it came to my eyes. It was 3 days of endless scratching, hands could be tied.I used up an entire tube of post-peel cream in a week.
I could only wash with water. In this case, the skin, of course, rolled off. And then my whole face burned so hard that I howled. I applied the cream and howled again until it “falls through” inside and even slightly softens the skin.
Today is Monday. That is, the 12th day from the moment of peeling. Until now, peeling is still completed in the corners of the eyes, on the tips of the ears and on the neck. In the corners of my mouth, “seizures” appeared, which it is not yet known when they will pass, because I have never had them in my life.I still cannot open my mouth normally.
But the worst thing is that all the wonderful results that have been achieved with glycolic peels have been canceled out by this yellow peel. Not only did the inflammation in the lower part of the face come back, but there are more of them (I mean pimples). And they became internal, subcutaneous. It looks awful. And what upset me immensely was a net of small, fine wrinkles that appeared on my motionless eyelid of one eye.Apparently, this is a side effect of those few days of burning eyes, when everything around them was red, like an allergy sufferer. Despite the fact that I have never been allergic. I naively hoped that this mesh would disappear when the peeling process is complete, but no.
Everything remained in place: both mimic wrinkles and inflammation. The fact that the pores of the skin are tightened – so they were tightened even after the glycolic peeling from the very first time. The only new thing this peeling brought is bleached skin. But why would I need it if I didn’t have pigmentation and freckles.
I have not seen a single plus in this peeling. He knocked me out of my working rut for almost 2 weeks, the first week was especially difficult. I communicate with people face to face, and all this rubbish, redness and lack of makeup on the face, as well as these ugly seizures in the corners of the lips – what was it worth putting up with? I don’t see any positive result.
Bellefontaine – Peels
The main problems that any woman faces are dull and tired skin, age spots, acne, wrinkles.After a course of chemical peeling procedures, there is a real opportunity to forget about it. Renofase peeling technologies effectively correct age-related skin changes, fatigue-causing wrinkles disappear, the corners of the mouth are lifted, crow’s feet around the eyes disappear, and the usual facial contours return. The skin becomes smooth, soft and pleasant to the touch. The face is again illuminated by the attractive colors of youth.
The Renophase innovation consists of the complex action of glycolic acid, phytoestrogens and biologically active components.For a controlled effect on the deep layers of the skin, the active ingredients are enclosed in the PRP Microsystem Hydrogel Matrix Renophase. The name of the Renophase microsystem speaks for itself: Penetration – Release – Protection.
How effective are chemical peels? Chemical peels have been successfully used for about 50 years. Glycolic acid, which is part of professional drugs, acts superficially and is safe. Molecules of active substances, including a combination of glycolic acid and therapeutic components, actively penetrate into the dermis and stimulate collagen synthesis, moisturizing the skin, providing anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects.Already after the first procedure, the quality of the skin is noticeably improved, wrinkles are smoothed, the lifting effect is noticeable.
The course of treatment is from 5 to 10 procedures once a week. Supportive therapy – once a month. Chemical peeling is the exfoliation (exfoliation) of a specific layer of the skin.

90,000 WHAT IS PEELING? – Koreabutik. ru
Peeling is the removal of the upper layer of dead skin cells.The cells of the epidermis are in constant motion from the lower layers to the surface, where they die off, peel off and are gradually replaced by new, younger ones. If this process is accelerated, the skin will renew itself faster, which means it will acquire a fresh color and even relief.
The procedure goes back more than one hundred years: even ancient Eastern and ancient Egyptian beauties used wine, lemons and sour milk to “dissolve” the surface layer of cells and release the young smooth skin hidden underneath.
SKIN LIKE A PEACH, OR WHY IT IS NECESSARY
Peelings are different: soft superficial (exfoliation), superficial (epidermolysis), middle and deep. As we said, peeling removes the top layer of cells, thus renewing the skin. In addition, the procedure stimulates the processes of regeneration and self-healing, activates the synthesis of collagen fibers, due to which the skin switches to a younger mode.
There are three TYPES of peeling in total: mechanical (removal of the surface layer of the skin with abrasive agents: granules, microcrystals), chemical (based on acids and other active substances) and physical (laser or ultrasonic).
Superficial peels can be acidic, mechanical or ultrasonic. Medium and deep effects are performed with laser or acid peels. At the same time, acidic ones are divided according to the degree of “aggressiveness”: this is determined by the acid concentration (from 2 to 70%) and pH. Often, a course of acid peels is prescribed with a gradual increase in acid concentration.
It turns out that peels differ in level (depth) and degree of impact and, accordingly, in the tasks being solved:
• surface acid peels with antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects help against acne and blackheads.Such peelings normalize sebum production, cleanse pores, kill germs, and whiten the skin;
• superficial acid or mechanical peeling will help to even out the complexion and skin relief;
• acid peels with a lightening effect will help against pigmentation and freckles;
• medium and deep peels are effective against wrinkles (depending on the condition of the skin), although even superficial acid peels smooth the skin, make it more elastic and moisturized, and thus reduce fine wrinkles;
• for scars, stretch marks, post-acne and scars, a course of median or deep peels will help;
• laser peeling is used for a serious facelift, removal of deep folds and wrinkles and deep rejuvenation of mature skin.
The general results of any peeling are as follows:
1) Radiant complexion, dullness and smoothness of the skin after the first procedure,
2) Smoothing of the relief, reduction of post-acne, scarring,
3) Narrowing of pores,
4) Elimination of freckles and spots – they will come off together with the surface layers of the skin,
5) Reduction of wrinkles,
6) Launching the processes of rejuvenation,
7) Strengthening the effect of other cosmetics and procedures, since after peeling the skin becomes more susceptible (creams are better absorbed and masks, non-injection biorevitalization is more effective, etc.
Below you will find a description of the most common peels that are offered today in Moscow, indicating the average recommended course of procedures. In general, we note that the number of procedures is due to your problem: one session is enough to “gloss” and cleanse the skin, and to solve more complex problems (rejuvenation, elimination of scars, etc. ), you will need to complete a full course.
WHEN TO DO THE PEELING?
Most peels are seasonal: they are recommended to be carried out in the autumn-winter period, when solar activity is reduced.Peeling thinns the skin and makes it vulnerable to the sun, and some acids have the ability to enhance the harmful effects of ultraviolet radiation. Even after a winter peel, it is necessary to use high SPF sunscreens. However, there are a number of peels that can be done in the summer or before going to a ski resort – in the overview of procedures below, they are marked as “off-season”.
HOW TO PREPARE FOR THE PROCEDURE?
Medium to deep chemical peels require preliminary skin preparation.And here are the reasons:
1) During preparation, the skin is tested for acid tolerance,
2) The skin adapts to the action of acids,
3) The skin relief during the preparatory period is leveled, due to which the peeling agent will be distributed during the salon procedure more evenly, and the efficiency will be higher,
4) The production of melanin in the skin is suspended, which is necessary to prevent post-peeling hyperpigmentation.
Preparation for chemical peels should be started 10-14 days before the procedure.To do this, you can use cosmetics with fruit acids (ANA, AXA, alpha hydroxy acids). If your skin is prone to pigmentation, then you will have to start preparation even earlier: in 2-4 weeks, and you should additionally use whitening cosmetics. After the preparatory period, the beautician will conduct a test on a small area of the skin to check its reaction to the peeling agent.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN IMMEDIATELY AFTER PEELING
Peeling is a procedure that requires a period of rehabilitation, because, in fact, it is skin damage, and it takes time to recover.Immediately after the procedure, the skin will have a reddish tint, swelling will appear, you will feel itching, tightness, tingling. These sensations are relieved by active hydration of the skin. Use “Panthenol” and preparations recommended by the beautician, spray your face with thermal water. Within a few days, the face will peel off, the skin may come off in patches. Sometimes, on the contrary, peeling is not observed at all: there is no direct connection between the degree of exfoliation and the effect of the procedure. In some cases, large-lamellar peeling occurs.Remember: no matter how itch your hands, it is strictly forbidden to tear off the skin! Deep peeling is carried out in a hospital, the skin after it is in a condition comparable to a burn, and requires professional care.
WE UNDERSTAND IN TYPES OF PEELINGS
Consider the most popular and effective types of peels:
• GLYCOL PEELING:
superficial, chemical, seasonal, suitable even for very young skin (from 15 years old). This is the most gentle chemical peeling.Glycolic acid belongs to fruit acids and has the smallest molecule, thanks to which it easily passes through the epidermal barrier. It destroys the intercellular connections that hold dead cells on the surface of the skin, actively exfoliates and renews the skin. If the concentration of glycolic acid in the peeling is increased (from 30% to 70%), then the drug acts not only on the surface, but also in the deeper layers of the skin, where it stimulates the activity of collagen and elastin, that is, it starts the processes of rejuvenation. In addition, glycolic peeling perfectly moisturizes and soothes the skin, normalizes its oily content, therefore it is used to treat acne and acne. Natural ingredients are added to the peeling: extracts of blueberries, grapes, sugar cane, amino acids. The procedure fights post-acne, removes slight laxity, age spots and freckles.
To achieve a lasting effect, it is necessary to take a course of 3-10 sessions. The recovery period usually takes 1-3 days.
• ALMOND PEELING:
superficial, chemical, off-season.Effectively moisturizes the skin, has an antioxidant effect and is suitable for preventing aging. Also, mandelic acid helps with acne and comedones. The mandelic acid molecule is quite large, therefore it does not penetrate deeply into the skin, which makes the procedure delicate and suitable for all skin types. If glycolic peels are not for you, then almond peels are likely to work.
The day after the peeling, the skin will become very dry and should be actively moisturized using soothing creams with collagen, algae or lactic acid. The average course of procedures is from 2 to 8 sessions with an interval of 10 days.
• FRUIT PEELINGS (AHA / AHA-ACIDS):
surface, chemical, seasonal or off-season depending on concentration. This group includes peels based on other fruit acids: lactic, malic, citric, tartaric. Their combination is also widely used. Fruit AXA acids can get rid of acne and blackheads and eliminate the first signs of aging, simply cleanse the skin or saturate it with moisture, make it more elastic and elastic.For this, acids of different concentrations and pH are used. Lactic acid has the ability to detoxify, whiten and moisturize. Lemon, apple and wine fight against acne and photoaging.
Average course of fruit peels – 10-12 sessions with an interval of 7 days.
• SALICYL PEELING:
superficial-median, chemical, seasonal. The main components of the peeling are salicylic acid and the UCON-complex, which prevents its crystallization. The acid relieves inflammation, kills bacteria, promotes cell exfoliation and the production of collagen and elastin. At the age of 18-25, salicylic peeling helps in the fight against acne, comedones and rashes, it unclogs the pores of the skin and prevents the development of acne. After 30, peeling will eliminate traces of photoaging, even out the complexion and skin relief, strengthen it and restore elasticity.
For 1-2 weeks of the procedure, you need to treat the skin with the means prescribed by a specialist, the course is about 3-6 procedures. The rehabilitation period will take several days after each session.
• RETINOL or YELLOW PEELING:
medium, chemical, seasonal, suitable for skin after 25 years.It enjoys tremendous popularity among American women and is steadily gaining momentum in Russia. The procedure rejuvenates and evens out the skin, fights the first signs of aging, acne, post-acne, hyperpigmentation and photoaging.
The peeling agent itself has an intense yellow color due to its constituent retinoic acid (hence the name). The procedure is suitable for all skin types, is safe and easy to tolerate. Yellow peeling should be carried out in a course of at least 3 procedures with an interval of 10-14 days.The courses must be repeated 1-2 times a year.
The yellow peel can be based on synthetic or natural retinol. Peeling based on synthetic retinoic acid is called weekend peeling – so little time is spent on skin restoration after the procedure: about 2 days. Before the procedure, you need to treat the face with a weak solution of retinoic acid for 2 weeks.
Natural Retinol is obtained from the tropical plant Urucum, and peels based on it are even softer and more gentle than synthetic ones.No preliminary preparation of the skin is required, the frequency of procedures can be increased several times, but the effect is somewhat lower, since natural retinol works at a more superficial level of the skin.
• JESSNER’S PEELING:
superficial / light medium, chemical, seasonal, for skin from 20 years. It is a complex of several active substances: lactic and salicylic acids and resorcinol. Jessner’s peeling solves a whole bunch of problems: acne, enlarged pores and oily skin; age spots and stretch marks; ingrown hair; the first signs of wilting and aging; post-acne, scars, scars and other defects of the skin relief.Lactic acid moisturizes and rejuvenates, salicylic acid normalizes oil content and helps against acne, and resorcinol removes dead cells and kills harmful bacteria.
This peeling does not require any special preparation of the skin – it is enough to cleanse and degrease the face before the procedure. Jessner’s peeling is carried out in courses prescribed by the beautician individually: at the age of 20 to 30 years, peeling is carried out no more than 1 time in 2 months; after 30 years, the frequency of procedures increases.
• TCA, or TRICHLOROACETIC ACID PEELING:
middle, chemical, seasonal.Recommended for skin from 25 years old or at a younger age – locally, in areas with a violation of the relief. TCA acid acts not on the surface, but on the middle level of the skin. Excellent for skin whitening and relief after chickenpox and acne (the combination of TCA peeling with fractional photothermolysis gives an amazing effect). In addition, TCA tightens the pores of the skin and makes the complexion even and radiant. It is not worth waiting for the elimination of deep wrinkles and nasolabial folds from this peeling, but the procedure will cope perfectly with fine wrinkles and the first signs of fading.
For TCA, a pre-peel preparation is required according to the beautician’s instructions; rehabilitation will take 4-7 days.
• RED PEELS, or RED PEEL:
superficial / superficial-middle / middle, chemical, non-seasonal, for all ages. This is the newest word in peels – Red Peel is versatile and able to solve a wide range of problems. You will get rid of acne, scars, hyperpigmentation, hyperkeratosis, wrinkles, dryness and age-related changes. This extensive functionality is due to the fact that the depth of the effect of the red peeling can be adjusted. The peeling contains hyaluronic acid – a skin moisturizer, which is used in biorevitalization to slow down the aging process. In addition, the peeling contains a complex of Sicilian red orange and retinol, which have antioxidant properties, and pyruvic acid (50%), which penetrates the skin and promotes its gentle cleansing and protection.
A rehabilitation period after a red peel is not required; peeling and redness of the skin is usually not observed. Immediately after the procedure, the skin will be smooth, silky and even, and in a day its condition will improve, since the active components of the drug accumulate in the skin and have a prolonged effect.
• PHENOL PEELING:
deep, chemical, seasonal. This is a serious procedure that is prescribed by a specialist and is carried out in a hospital setting. Phenol peeling acts on the deep layers, treats hyperpigmentation, hyperkeratosis, removes scars and wrinkles. The procedure is painful, difficult, requiring a rehabilitation period.
• CORAL PEELING:
medium, mechanical, non-seasonal, universal: suitable for all skin types and ages. A unique procedure that combines the advantages of chemical and mechanical peeling.The preparation for coral peeling – Rose de Mer (“Rose de Mer”) from Christina (Israel) – contains only natural ingredients: Dead Sea salt, Red Sea corals, extracts of rare Brazilian herbs and essential oils. Peeling whitens and evens out the skin, softens and exfoliates the surface layer, cleanses and shrinks pores. The walls of blood vessels are strengthened, congestion is eliminated. The skin is tightened and begins to glow from the inside, “crow’s feet” and mimic wrinkles are smoothed out, the color and relief are leveled.Coral peeling is an excellent lifting tool!
You will feel a tingling sensation during the procedure and the next day. After peeling, the skin will be red or bright pink, slight swelling may occur, and peeling will begin. This rehabilitation period takes on average 5-7 days.
The recommended course looks like this: 3-10 sessions at intervals depending on your age. At 15-27 years old, coral peeling can be carried out once a week, at 29-39 years old – once every 10 days, at 40-49 years old – once every 2 weeks, and after 50 years old – once every 3 weeks.This course is due to the fact that with age, the skin is renewed more and more slowly.
• BRUSHING, or LIGHT MECHANICAL PEELING:
superficial, mechanical, seasonal, for any skin. The procedure consists in polishing the skin with special brushes that rotate on a special apparatus at different speeds and remove the stratum corneum. Microcirculation improves, the complexion is evened out, fine wrinkles disappear and pores are very effectively cleansed. The procedure takes 5-15 minutes, the average course is 5-6 sessions.
• MICROCRYSTALLINE PEELING:
superficial / medium, mechanical, seasonal, for all skin types. This is hardware micro-resurfacing of the face, in which microcrystals of aluminum are fed to the skin through a special tip, exfoliate the upper layer and, together with the removed cells, are absorbed into the device. After the first such procedure, the complexion will improve, the skin will become smooth. Microdermabrasion works well with existing wrinkles and prevents the appearance of new ones.
Standard course – 4-6 sessions 1 time in 2 weeks. The skin will be smooth and radiant within 4-12 months. A longer course of procedures will relieve you of scars, scars and stretch marks. No rehabilitation period is required, the procedure is painless and safe.
• DIAMOND MICROdermabrasion:
This is a type of microdermabrasion described above. It is believed that such a diamond peel has a more gentle effect. The difference is that microcrystals are not applied to the skin, it is directly processed with a diamond-coated tip.There can be about 10 such attachments, and the optimal design will be selected for you.
• JET PEEL PEELING:
deep, mechanical, off-season – moreover, the Jet Peel peeling is recommended before visiting the solarium or the beach in order to smooth the skin relief and achieve an even tan! This gas-liquid mechanical peeling is comparable in effect to acid peeling, but it is less painful and traumatic. Jet Peel successfully treats acne, smoothes wrinkles, massages the face and oxygenates the tissues.Removing the top layer of the skin with a gas-liquid jet prevents blockage of the sebaceous glands and thereby eliminates the cause of acne and acne.
• ULTRASONIC PEELING:
superficial, physical, non-seasonal, for all ages. This procedure is considered one of the most gentle. Ultrasound narrows the pores of the skin and cleanses the top layer of dead particles, has an anti-inflammatory and anti-edema effect. In addition, the skin responds to ultrasound with increased production of collagen and elastin, that is, it smoothes and tightens a little.Although it is worth noting that the main effect of ultrasonic peeling is a well-groomed fresh look of the face, not rejuvenation.
The procedure is gentle and safe, it can be done every 10 days. After peeling, there will be no redness and inflammation on the skin, the effect is visible immediately, there is no rehabilitation period. In some cases, to consolidate the result, a second session is required in a week.
• LASER PEELING:
physical, seasonal, for mature skin. There are two types: surface laser peeling and deep.When laser resurfacing the surface layer of the skin, the effect is at a depth of 20-30 microns, due to which it is possible to improve the optical properties of the skin and even out its relief. Deep laser peeling, or laser dermabrasion, involves the complete removal of the epidermis and part of the dermis in order to get rid of deep wrinkles, scars, stretch marks. In this case, the impact is carried out at a depth of 100-150 microns.
In the next issues of our magazine, we will consider laser procedures in more detail: what fractional exposure is, what types of lasers are used today and what problems can be solved with their help.
Peels are very effective procedures, after which you will be amazed at HOW radiant, smooth, luxurious your skin can be. And autumn is a great time to take care of yourself! Don’t miss your chance for a beautiful complexion and perfect skin!
One of the most frequent indications for peeling is the correction of age-related changes in the skin, clinical signs of photoinduced aging, prevention of aging.At the age of 25-35 years, the most optimal type of chemical peeling is glycolic. It is quite effective in correcting the very first superficial wrinkles affecting the epidermal level.
As for the age of 35-45 years, only glycolic peelings are ineffective here, since the depth of wrinkles already corresponds to the dermal level. Chemical peels with retinoids or TCA are much more effective. Of these two types, peeling with retinoids is safer, since it practically does not cause inflammation and at the same time it improves skin turgor and structure well.
By the age of 40–45, absolutely all women have a deepening of the nasolabial folds, well-formed vertical and horizontal wrinkles of the forehead, mimic wrinkles of the outer corner of the eye (crow’s feet), drooping of the corners of the mouth is noted, which gives the face a tired, mournful expression. Carrying out any peeling (retinoids, TCA, phenol) can not completely solve these problems, but only reduce the depth of wrinkles, partially smoothen the skin. Therefore, the procedure of chemical peeling in this case must be combined with other methods – in particular, with injections of botulism toxin, the introduction of microimplants.
Chemical peels are widely used in acne patients. And first of all, in the correction of post-acne (hyperpigmentation, dyschromia, atrophic changes, enlarged pores). The most effective in this case are b-complex (combined preparations containing glycolic and salicylic acids), 15% TCA. At the same time, ANA-peeling has a comedolytic effect, affects the main factor in the pathogenesis of acne – follicular hyperkeratosis. When carrying out glycolic peeling, not only a decrease in the number of comedones is noted and the outflow from the follicle orifice is restored, but the anaerobic conditions necessary for the reproduction of P.acnes. Thus, the emergence of new inflammatory acne elements is prevented. Combination therapy, including the appointment of sebosuppressive and antibacterial drugs and a course of glycolic peeling, allows achieving stable clinical remission in such patients.
Hyperpigmentation is a direct indication for chemical peeling. In the treatment of pigmentation, three types of peels are used: glycolic, retinoic acid and phenol. Phenol is the most effective in correcting hyperpigmentation, but the following types of complications are often observed after its use: depigmentation, demarcation line, scars.Retinoic and glycolic acids are significantly inferior to phenol in terms of whitening, but they are safer.
Stretch marks (“stretch marks” in the abdomen, thighs and chest) are scar tissue, and it is almost impossible to fight against it. Chemical peels can make striae less noticeable, but this cosmetic defect cannot be completely corrected. TCA peeling is more effective than superficial peels, but the risk of complications after it is higher, and the rehabilitation period is longer.As for ANA, this type of peeling is recommended for striae no more than 2-3 mm wide.
The use of retinoids for this pathology does not make sense. First, retinoids do not affect scar tissue. Secondly, the fight against striae involves a large area of application of the drug, which is undesirable, given its systemic action.

Remove makeup and wash as usual.Protonate and dry the skin.
It is most convenient to apply the peeling with a fan brush, after pouring a few drops into a glass or ceramic container.
If you decide to peel with your fingers, use gloves to avoid irritating your hands.
The skin must be dry, otherwise there is a risk of burns.
The peeling is applied to the face in the following order, from less sensitive areas to more sensitive: forehead, nose, chin, cheekbones and temples, cheeks, area around the mouth.
Peels are kept on the face for a strictly specified time. Exceeding this time can lead to severe damage to the skin, irritation, redness, itching, violation of the epidermal barrier. In no case do not overexpose the peeling on your face for more than the time specified in the instructions for your particular peeling.
For maximum comfort at the end of the peeling procedure, first apply the neutralizer to the peeling (with a brush or cotton pads), then rinse with more and more water at room temperature, then wipe your face again with the neutralizer.
Wash off the peeling with cool water or water at room temperature.
When washing off, there may be a pleasant warmth sensation on the skin (it depends on the composition of the peeling), this is normal.
After the procedure, apply a soothing, revitalizing cream – this way you will provide your skin with comfort and the fastest possible recovery.
If, after peeling, you apply an active mask – moisturizing, soothing, nourishing or anti-aging, its effect will increase significantly, and the skin will recover faster and afterwards it will thank you.
In case of severe irritation, redness or other discomfort during use, quickly apply the neutralizer for a minute, then rinse with plenty of room temperature water. Apply a toner and a soothing agent such as aloe vera gel.
For a few days after the peel, do not visit the solarium and try not to get into direct sunlight.
Be sure to use SPF-protection during the course of peels to avoid irritation and pigmentation.
As a rule, most peels are done once every 7 days – for oily, problematic, oily and normal skin, and once every 10-14 days – for dry and sensitive skin.
