Vie collection prescription
at home

1 Before the session

« Before I perform a peel, I ask the patient to apply a serum with 10% glycolic acid concentration for 1 week. This preparatory work on the skin is necessary to gradually lower the skin’s pH and to encourage uniform penetration when the peel is applied. »

2 During the session

« Each session lasts around 20 minutes. I start by applying a pre-peel serum with 20% glycolic acid concentration, like GLYCO 20. I then continue by placing the 20-50% concentrated peel for 3-4 minutes. Next, I apply a neutralizing agent, followed by rinsing and applying a soothing and repairing cream. »

3 After the session

«I recommend applying a healing, repair and recovery cream for one week at home before you start to apply your usual cream again.»

Q&A WITH OUR CONSULTING ESTHETIC DOCTOR

Peels are done generally once every two weeks. For some people, three sessions will be enough, to be repeated once or twice / year according to their skin.

Peels are particularly applied to the skin on the face, and sometimes also the décolleté, neck and hands.

Yes, a peel is used on almost all types of skin, except black skin.

Mostly according to the patient’s age. I would choose a superficial peel with a low concentration on young skin. I would choose a higher concentration on mature skin.

Yes, a single peel offers very good results, for example on acne-prone skin. But we prefer to combine different esthetic medical techniques, such as injections for wrinkles and lasers for dark spots, in order to have a global action across all skin flaws.
