It’s time to exfoliate to bring out your face’s natural glow with the right treatments like peels (to do at home and in the clinic). Discover them all
This is it: summer is over. And, as always, with the change of season, we need to put in place a series of strategies to give our skin the best. September and fall represent the ideal time for detox. The skin needs to cleanse itself, get rid of accumulated waste, and have a boost of hydration after the action of the sun, salt, and heat. The goal, then, is to stimulate cell turnover to get rid of dead cells and give the complexion a new glow.
The treatments of the moment: peeling
The keyword can only be peeling. We are talking about an exfoliating treatment of the superficial skin layer, which can be done at home or in the cosmetic doctor’s clinic after a thorough consultation to assess the state of the skin. Remember, this is also the ideal time for anti-stain treatments and moisturizing and nourishing creams that fight dryness-a mix of issues that requires a personalized evaluation by the doctor.
Peels in aesthetic medicine
Peeling is a treatment that involves the application of one or more chemical agents to the skin. “These act with different intensities and at different depths in order to stimulate cell turnover,” explains Dr. Antonella Franceschelli, aesthetic physician owner of Studio Franceschelli in Rome, a tutor physician in the outpatient aesthetic medicine clinics of Fatebenefratelli Isola Tiberina Hospital and Uniderm consultant. www.studiomedicofranceschelli.it -. Peels are medical-aesthetic treatments characterized by the presence, in their composition, of a single acid or a combination of acids. The most common are: glycolic, citric, mandelic, lactic, salicylic, and trichloroacetic. Depending on which peel you decide to use, the acid base varies, and the treatment can thus be: superficial, medium, or deep. The doctor will choose the type of peel to use depending on the patient’s skin type and the results to be achieved.” With peeling, we can not only improve skin dullness and the appearance of wrinkles and discolorations but also treat issues such as acne, stretch marks, scarring, and skin blemishes to give the skin youthfulness, elasticity, and radiance.

No unwanted side effects
None of these treatments have any side effects. You may notice some redness on the treated area, which may last for a few days, as well as flaking of the skin. The important thing is that all these products are used by experienced hands. They contain acids that, if not used properly, can cause even quite severe injuries.
Yes to gentle peeling: the treatments to do at home
They are called cosmetic peels and do not require a specialist to be present. This means you can use them in the comfort of your own home and incorporate them into your daily skincare routine. The difference is mainly in the concentration of actives and acids, which can be as high as 20 percent. Collagenil Laboratories has developed a specific product, Soft-peeling Antiaging.
This treatment-slightly invasive but effective-contains 8 percent glycolic acid and is great for solving the problems of dull, dehydrated skin typical of this season. Soft-peeling Antiaging contains jojoba oil, mallow and aloe extracts, zinc oxide (with soothing action), and the antioxidant and re-epithelizing vitamins E and A. It is part of the Relux line.
What to do after peeling
Although this is not a particularly aggressive treatment per se, it is good after the peel to “pamper” the skin using a nonaggressive cleanser and moisturizer. In the days immediately after the session, it is not indicated to expose oneself to the sun. It is recommended to apply a restorative and soothing cream to speed up the course.
