Performing a chemical peel involves applying one or more exfoliating agents to the skin to cause controlled damage, followed by release of cytokines and inflammatory mediators, resulting in regeneration of the epidermis.
Pyruvic acid is recommended for:
- aging of the skin with moderate and deep wrinkles
- cutaneous photoaging
- hyperpigmentation problems
- superficial scars
- actinic keratosis
- aged acneic skins
Pyruvic Acid helps you get skin that's flawless, rejuvenated and bright. However, its application can induce an itching sensation and the post-peel phase is often characterized by redness, desquamation and sometimes crusts.
Pyruvic acid (40%)
is an a-keto acid found in honey, vinegar, apples and fermented fruits, which produces effects on an epidermal and dermal level.
- At epidermal level, it is very effective in the treatment of acne because it helps regulate the secretion of sebum and has keratolytic and antimicrobial properties.
- At dermal level, it stimulates the production of new collagen, the formation of elastic fibers and glyco proteins, which leads to the reduction of wrinkles, photo-aging and hyperpigmentation. It produces a real skin remodeling, improving the texture of the skin and reducing its flaccidity. Thanks to its low pka and small molecular size, it penetrates quickly and deeply through the skin.
Lactic acid (10%)
gives more strength to the "barrier" function of the skin and promotes skin hydration. Lactic acid increases the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid by the skin. The skin is smoothed and the appearance of wrinkles is reduced.
