Performing a chemical peel involves applying one or more exfoliating agents to the skin to cause controlled damage, followed by the release of cytokines and inflammatory mediators resulting in the regeneration of the epidermis, the formation of new collagen, the reorganization of the elastic fibers and the increase of the dermal volume.
-Mandelic acid is an Alpha Hydroxide acid derived from the hydrolysis of bitter almonds, very effective in the treatment of photo-aging, wrinkles, irregular pigmentation, blemishes and acne.
-Mandelic acid activates cellular regeneration by reducing the existing connection between epidermal corneocytes, promoting the removal of pigmented cells from the skin surface and unifying the skin tone. Its lightening properties act as an inhibitor of tyrosinase and help clear up pigment spots, revealing even more glowing skin.
-By stimulating collagen production and firming the dermal matrix, mandelic acid helps eliminate wrinkles and offers a substantial benefit to skin elasticity and brightness.
-It is also suitable for the treatment of imperfections because it has antibacterial properties and allows unclogging pores, as well as normalizing secretion of sebum.
-Thanks to its high molecular weight, mandelic acid does not penetrate to the deep levels of the skin thus avoiding the risk of irritation, making it possible to treat patients with sensitive or dark skin that does not tolerate other types of Alpa hydroxide acids.
-Finally, the effectiveness of mandelic acid has been demonstrated to prepare skins for laser treatment or post-laser treatment for faster tissue recovery.
