Yellow Peel is a progressive peel, whose effect depends on the number of applied layers. Within a few hours after the treatment, microcirculation increases, oxygen supply to the skin improves and supply of nourishing substances takes place. Application of the peel results in a raised level of glycosaminoglycans, such as polysaccharides responsible for the retention of water; this is the main factor which instantly increases firmness and tightness of the skin and, in consequence, makes wrinkles more shallow. This is a simple treatment which brings the same benefits as more aggressive chemical peels, with an additional advantage of negligible nuisance to the patient. The exfoliation effect is insignificant and the appearance of skin immediately after the treatment does not constitute a limitation for professionally active people.
Yellow Peel stimulates through retinoic acid and, thanks to the impact of 3 other ingredients – phytic acid, kojic acid and azelaic acid – it also acts as a blockade of endogenic melanin synthesis, while removing existing discolourations and preventing the development of new ones.
- Repeating the treatment once per month is recommended
- Treatment length depends on the patient’s individual needs.
Stage 1: Pre-Peel
At the beginning, the face will be cleansed with Pre-Peel Cleanser, containing 20% of glycolic acid. The material remains on the face for approximately 10-15 minutes, after which it is washed off with water.
Stage 2: Initial peel
Superficial feel is performed with Alpha & Beta Complex Gel. The preparation remains on the face until development of mild erythema (30-60 seconds), after which it is washed off with water.
Stage 3: Peel
- Very superficial peel:
Yellow Peel mask is applied onto the face and left for approximately 20-30 minutes. It is subsequently washed off using water with neutral soap and another layer of the mask is applied and left for another 20-30 minutes. This is repeated until achievement of uniform erythema, which usually happens after 2-3 layers.
- Superficial peel:
Applications of the mask are repeated until development of uniform pink erythema, which usually happens after 3-4 layers.
- Medium/deep peel:
Special treatment, recommended to persons with a dark complexion. Yellow Peel mask is applied every 20-30 minutes until intensive erythema (erythema similar to one developed after intensive tanning). Such erythema is usually developed after 4-6 layers.
- Deep peel:
Treatment for fair skins. Yellow Peel mask is applied every 20-30 minutes until development of strong erythema and slight swelling in the treated area. Such effect is usually achieved after 6-8 layers. The inflammatory process caused during the treatment is a normal reaction and guarantees better results.
Stage 4: Post-Peel
After washing off the last layer, the skin is protected with Post Peel Recovery protection – cream in the form of petroleum jelly, restoring the hydrolipid barrier, ensuring protection of irritated skin and preventing skin drying.
- hinders production of melanin by its impact on the tyrosinase enzyme and on dopachrome tautomerase (DCT) – enzyme which participates in the generation of eumelanins
- natural antioxidant
- hinders melanogenesis (chelating action)
- antibacterial properties
- anti-proliferating properties
- fights free radicals
- regulates the discretion of sebum and has anti-androgenic properties
STABILISED VITAMIN C (ascorbyl palmitate)
- anti-oxidising properties
- hinders tyrosinase and impacts DHICA oxidase
- stimulates and influences the synthesis of neo-collagen
- activates superoxide dismutase (SOD)
- anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties
- stimulates proliferation of new epithelium cells and skin cells
- controls the secretion of sebum
- From day 1 until day 10 after the treatment, skin should only be washed with neutral soap.
- In case of too strong erythema, hydrocortisone is to be applied 2 or 3 times a day.
- Post Peel Recovery to be applied on irritated skin.
- In summer, application of sun protection products is mandatory.
