What does the treatment look like?

Choosing the right therapy with the use of medical peeling always depends on the individual needs of the patient’s skin, including the number and size of discolorations indicated for removal. They determine the choice of the appropriate active substance, its concentration and pH indicator, as well as the application time. The effect of using medical peeling includes: stimulation of cell renewal (improvement of density and tension of aging skin), diminishing the appearance of fine lines and acne scars, prevention of wrinkles and skin aging, unification of the skin tone and its brightening, seborrhea inhibition, pore stenosis . This advanced therapy involves several stages. First, the skin is cleaned with a suitable preparation, after which a suitable peeling is applied to it with a special brush. Then – after a carefully selected period, the preparation is neutralized using substances with a basic pH level. The skin is washed with lukewarm water, toned and in the final stage moisturized with appropriate cosmetics. The treatments with Cosmelan ™ and Dermamelan ™ are slightly different. Here the procedure includes the following:

  • applying the Cosmelan 1 / Dermelan 1 mask to the treated area (face, hands, back),
  • the patient with the applied mask returns home and rinses the preparation after the time selected by the doctor at a later stage of treatment,
  • the patient himself applies the cream Cosmelan 2 / Dermelan 2 In turn.

In the case of a retinol-based peel: an ampoule containing left-handed vitamin C and antioxidants is applied to the face, neck and décolleté, and after absorbing it through the skin, a mask with retinol is applied, which the patient himself rinses at home, after approx. 4 -8 hours.
