Biological men’s and women’s skin is different. The dermis of biological men tends to contain more collagen and is rougher, while not as fine, containing more pores than biological women. Thanks to hormone treatment, skin and hair become finer. Facial skin tends to become softer until it has a feminine appearance. Yet in some cases, it is necessary to remove the surface layer of dead cells so that the face glows in all its splendour. One of the least aggressive yet effective treatments is without a doubt, the facial peel. As well as renewing the skin, facial peeling can treat acne and minor facial wrinkles.
What is a facial peel?
Peeling is a non-surgical technique that enables the elimination of the surface layers of mistreated skin via a series of caustic substances (salicylic acid, lactic acid, glycolic acid, etc.). Chemical peeling has diverse applications: facial rejuvenation, removal or improvement of facial blemishes and the improvement of oily skin types (also with a tendency towards acne), though in all of these it notably improves skin quality.
There are different types of skin peel. The choice of one substance or another will depend both on the goal the patient wishes to attain and their skin type. So, the substance used and the number of sessions, their frequency, dosage and exposure time vary from one person to the next, and only a specialised doctor can make these decisions after analysing the patient’s skin quality.
Facial peeling softens facial skin, leaving it finer and glowing, giving it greater luminosity and softness.
