Several applications may be required for specific treatments. The number depends on the skin pathology to be corrected (spots, scars, wrinkles), the type of peeling chosen and the individual characteristics of the person. Between applications, a minimum week is usually allowed for a week to recover.

These treatments favor the relaxation of the facial features showing as a result a younger and rested appearance. They provide luminosity and leave a feeling of freshness in the skin.

The effects of facial peeling are usually quite long lasting but it is recommended to use them from time to time as a maintenance treatment apart from the other cosmetic products.

Steps to perform facial peeling

Some peelings need prior skin preparation. After treatment it is advised to apply restorative cream and maximum sun protection. For the first few days the skin will look red and, as the days go by, it will flake and make way for regenerated skin.

The application is simple:it spreads across the face avoiding sensitive areas such as the eye contour and is expected for a few minutes for the product to take effect. The duration of treatment is established according to its purpose. The package leaflets indicate the recommended time that the product should remain on the skin before rinsing that removes the residues.

Sometimes, if peeling responds to a specific treatment, moisturizing creams or complementary products should be applied, but it is normal not to need any more compounds.

Certain brands have launched products of this type, in individual single-dose envelopes with the right measure necessary for each application.
