A medical peel works by using 3 main ingredients:
- Rezorcin – an excellent ingredient in cosmetics fighting acne lesions. It has a disinfectant effect which protects the skin against the spread of bacteria causing inflammatory skin changes. In addition, resorcinol triggers epidermal exfoliation, which is necessary for the effective cleansing of the skin.
- Lactic acid – is known for its skin moisturizing properties, therefore it acts as an effective substance supporting skin regeneration after peeling. This acid also supplements the deficit of ceramides, which constitute a natural barrier for the skin, protecting it from the effects of harmful external factors. Thanks to its filling effect it contributes to shallowing of wrinkles.
- Salicylic acid – salicylic acid is distinguished by its bactericidal effect, as well as disinfecting and destroying fungi. A very important function of the acid is the reduction of excess dead epidermis which accumulates in the area of hair follicles. Thus, this acid effectively reduces the formation of acne changes.
Acids used in medical peeling DermaQuest, selected in the appropriate concentration are completely safe for the patient.
Lactic acid and resorcinol are natural products of metabolism occurring in the body, therefore they do not cause allergic or sensitization reactions on the skin.
