The skin cycle becomes longer as we age, causing dead skin cells to collect on the top layer of the epidermis and make the skin look dry and rough. The epidermis also thins as we get older. Exfoliation stimulates new epidermal cell growth, which helps smooth, thicken and strengthen the skin for a younger appearance.
To plump the skin and improve the appearance of fine lines, you must work from the inside out. Strengthen the dermis by using ingredients that stimulate the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid.
Treat sun spots, uneven skin tone and other discoloration with exfoliating treatments and products that contain melanin-inhibiting ingredients. Using these methods simultaneously increases your chance of success. Hydroquinone is a well-known skin lightener that inhibits the production of melanin. There are also natural lightening and brightening agents like emblica, licorice, oyster phoenix mushroom and kojic acid. Chemical peels are a great way to treat ageing skin and help combat some of these problems. There is very little down time, the treatment can be relaxing and produce great results in all ages. Bespoke skin peels and individualised prescribed creams can be a great step forward.
What is a Chemical Peel?
A chemical peel is a treatment used to improve skin texture and tone. An acid is applied to skin to lower the pH, which loosens the connections between dead skin cells, inducing exfoliation and stimulating new cell growth. This process causes superficial layers of dead skin to peel off, revealing a smoother and more radiant complexion. Chemical peels can also thicken the epidermis, increase dermal volume and stimulate collagen.
Chemical peels have been used dating back to Ancient Egypt. Cleopatra used sour milk to improve the appearance of her skin, according to some sources. Lactic acid (an alpha hydroxy acid) is the active ingredient in sour milk.
