How long does a full course of peeling last, how many sessions can and should be done to achieve perfect skin and not to overdo it? These moments must be taken into account when planning face transformation. The duration and frequency of the procedures is determined by the specialist after a detailed study of the condition of the integument, the degree of the problem, and a number of other important factors.
One procedure or a whole course – which is better?
In the modern world of cosmetology, peeling is considered a mandatory procedure in skin care. It guarantees not only deep cleansing of the skin, removal of dead, non-working cells of the epidermis, but also activates a number of the most important processes inside the integument, heals them and accelerates the synthesis of natural collagen. After cleaning, the face looks much younger, the skin becomes lighter, a slight blush appears and a lifting effect is observed.
Facial peeling is carried out by courses or one-time, depending on the type of procedure, the depth of exposure, and also on the expected result.
If cleaning is carried out in order to prevent early wilting, one procedure is allowed. But in this case, cosmetologists recommend conducting them regularly, with an interval of 1 – 6 months, depending on the chosen cleansing technique.
In order to correct visible imperfections on the face, get rid of acne, excessive oily skin, cosmetologists recommend a peeling course. A single cleaning of the covers will not provide the desired result, if it is not a deep impact.
Ideally, a full course of procedures is carried out to eliminate skin problems, and then superficial, one-time cleansing is supposed to maintain the achieved effect and prevent the deterioration of the integument.
How often is peeling
The frequency of cleaning depends on the methodology and the depth of exposure to the integument. Peelings are mechanical, chemical, hardware. The depth of exposure distinguishes between surface, middle or deep cleansing.
For mechanical cleanings
Mechanical peelings include borsage, peeling, dermabrasion and microdermabrasion, body mask, or coral face cleansing. The essence of purification is the mechanical removal of dead particles, various coarsening from the surface. The procedure helps get rid of black points, smoothing the relief and enhancing intracellular processes.
Brossage is a type of superficial skin cleansing. For its implementation, soft brushes, sponges, special nozzles are used. Browsing is aimed at improving the condition of the skin, normalizing intracellular processes, as well as delicate cleansing of pores. It does not cause allergies, does not violate the integrity of the epidermis and is recommended for regular use, regardless of the time of year. The frequency of performing the throwing depends on the condition of the integument, the age of the client. You can clean every 1 – 2 week.
Cleaning with scrubs, body care masks, coral peeling is another option for easy, safe cleansing. You can spend them in the cabin or at home. For owners of the fatty type of epidermis, this type of cleansing is performed once every 7 – 10 days. For dry skin, such frequent sessions will be harmful, so limit yourself once in 2 weeks.
Do not overdo it with scrubs. Beauticians recommend performing such cleansing courses in 2 months each. It is important to give the skin a rest, the interval between courses should be about 3 months.
Microdermabrasion is an exclusively salon procedure. The surface of the face is polished by a stream of air with aluminum crystals or other abrasive particles. The procedure is carried out by courses. The duration of the peeling course is 5 – 20 sessions with an interval of 7 – 14 days. How many procedures will be required exactly in your case by a cosmetologist, on average 5 – 8 visits are enough. After a course of peeling procedures, a short break is made (from 1 to 3 months).
Dermabrasion refers to deep mechanical cleansing. The surface layer of the skin is peeled off using abrasive nozzles. The process is very painful, and recovery takes up to 6 months. Cleansing is performed in winter or late autumn to reduce the risk of hyperpigmentation of the skin. Such peeling can be done no more than 3 times in a lifetime. In some cases, the purification is performed in several approaches, with an interval from 3 months to six months.
For hardware cleaning
Hardware peeling refers to safe cosmetic procedures. The problem areas are affected by various physical factors (microcurrent, ultrasound, laser, high or low temperature, radio frequencies). Their action guarantees increased intracellular processes, actively stimulates skin renewal. As a rule, the effect of cleansing is increasing, therefore, it is required to conduct it in courses.
Ultrasound and laser peels are recognized as the most popular in beauty salons.
Ultrasonic peeling – guarantees a delicate, superficial cleansing of the skin. After cleaning, there is no need for a long rehabilitation. Ultrasound procedures are carried out in courses for 5 – 7 sessions. Between sessions, a break of 10 – 14 days is taken.
Laser peeling refers to deeper procedures and guarantees a lasting anti-aging effect. With the help of a laser, a cosmetologist “burns out” problem areas, eliminates non-working and weakened cells. In addition, favorable conditions are created inside the integument for accelerated synthesis of natural collagen, elastin. Therefore, laser peeling is a great option for rejuvenating and tightening the skin. Laser exposure allows you to fix complex skin problems, as well as prevent their deepening in the future. The course of laser peelings is 2 – 8 procedures, they can be performed no less than 5 days after the previous session.
Is it possible to do a peeling, how many procedures are required, only a cosmetologist determines. This takes into account the condition of the skin, the age of the patient, the presence of indications and contraindications, as well as the speed of recovery after the previous exposure.
For chemical peels
Chemical peeling or exfoliation is the most popular, affordable way to cleanse the skin and improve its condition in a matter of time. Problem areas are treated with an acid or alkaline solution of high concentration. Thus, a controlled chemical burn is obtained, it causes an active renewal of the integument.
The principle of action of chemical procedures is the same, the only difference is in the depth of penetration of the concentrated composition. All exfoliations include a rehabilitation period. You will need maximum attention and patience, special care and some restrictions in the usual way of life. Subsequent peels can be performed only at the end of the recovery period, making the procedure in a row unsafe for the patient’s health.
Superficial chemical peels guarantee high-quality cleansing of the surface layers of the epidermis, eliminate minor defects, accelerate internal processes. For such exfoliations, fruit acids are usually used, as well as salicylic or retinoic. To achieve a lasting result, it is recommended to carry out peeling courses in 5 – 10 procedures. The interval between sessions is 10 – 14 days, as the cover is restored.
Median exfoliations provide a deeper effect, they affect all layers of the epidermis. Such cleansing is used to smooth out wrinkles and skin imperfections that are medium in depth, as well as to treat acne and acne. To solve the problem, cosmetologists recommend conducting an 3 – 4 session with an interval of 2 – 3 weeks, when the skin recovers from the previous exposure.
Deep peeling is performed with phenolic acid, less often trichloroacetic. The procedure is very complicated, but the final effect is compared even with plastic surgery. A high concentration of a chemical can cause a number of abnormalities in the client’s body, therefore it is possible to resort to such procedures only 1 – 2 once in a lifetime.
When to start cleaning
For the normal operation of epidermal cells, to ensure the “respiration” of the skin and to fill it with nutritious components, peeling should be done regularly. However, there is one caveat: not all cleanings can be performed all year round, most of them are carried out in late autumn, winter or early spring. During this period of the year, solar activity is slightly reduced, respectively, solar ultraviolet will be less harmful for weakened fibers.
Another plus of winter peeling is that by the summer the skin will fully recover, it will look perfect. You can go to the sea or take a sun bath.
Do not think that when performing peeling in the winter, the risk of hyperpigmentation is zero. This opinion is erroneous. In winter, it is also necessary to use sunscreen cosmetics.
To plan the cosmetic transformation correctly, be sure to check the duration of the full course of peeling and how many sessions will be required to solve your problem.
Note also that before performing a medial or deep cleansing, the skin must be prepared. Pre-peeling preparation may take 1 month or more.
Modern cosmetology offers a huge assortment of peeling procedures, after which the skin will shine with health and look perfect. All you need to do is contact a cosmetologist. They will choose the best type of cleansing, determine the number of procedures and their frequency.
