Chemical Peeling




Chemical peels are considered one of the most effective techniques to solve certain aesthetic problems and to achieve a healthy and radiant skin. 


Superficial or ‘lunchtime’ peel 


These peels don’t require much downtime as they onlycause the destruction and total renewal of the stratum corneum and partial of the epidermis (the most superficial layers of skin). Alpha-hydroxy acid or another mild acid is used to treat only the outer layer of skin to gently exfoliate it. These treatments are used to improve the appearance of mild skin discolourations and rough skin. Because these are such mild treatments, superficial peels must be repeated several times in order to begin to see results. 










 













Treatment protocol - What to expect from the lunchtime treatment?




  • TOSKANI Photo-aging Peel


Works by eliminating cells on the upper layers of the epidermis, helping to reduce hyperpigmentation in exposed skins and photo-ageing skins. This accelerated exfoliation increases the turnover rate of the epidermal cells, resulting in a smoother and brighter skin. Photo-ageing Peel is a unique solution as it diminishes the visible signs caused by sun damage and evens the skin tone. This peel also provides a moderate rejuvenating effect and fights against mild and moderate wrinkles. (13%+8%+14%)

Indications:


Photo-ageing
Mild and moderate wrinkles 
Dull and sagging skin
Dyschromia



Active ingredients:


Lactic Acid It has lightening effect on skin colour since it promotes a more homogeneous spreading of melanin and inhibits tyrosinase action, an enzyme that takes part in melanogenesis first steps. It stimulates epidermis and dermis thickening. It promotes the increasing of hyaluronic acid concentration in extracellular matrix, giving the skin hydration and firmness.

 
Citric acid is a member of the alpha hydroxy acid family. It breaks down the protein bonds between dead and living skin cells of the skin top layers, allowing the older dead cells to shed. By removing the dead cells that often clog the pores, citric acid can also be beneficial for people suffering from enlarged pores. Citric Acid promotes new skin growth, what can also help alleviate the appearance of age spots and acne scars.


Salicylic acid is used topically. It diminishes acne by reducing swelling and redness, it prevents the appearance of pimples, blackheads and other imperfections of acne-prone skin. It opens the clogged skin pores, allowing the pimples to dry. It has comedolytic, keratolytic, sebaceous regulatory and anti-inflammatory properties. Moreover, its application stimulates skin renewal by removing dead cells and impurities trapped in the pilosebaceous ducts. This helps to smooth out fine wrinkles, improve skin colour and reduce acne scars and damage caused by UV and environmental factors (cold, heat, pollution) on the skin.

 


  • TOSKANI Purifying Peel


Is a combination of salicylic acid and azelaic acid that renews the skin by removing dead cells from the surface and stimulates the proliferation of cells in the basal layer, which improves the health of oily and acne-prone skins. With the application of this peeling treatment you can quickly achieve a substantial improvement in the appearance of acne-related disorders. It is an ideal mesotherapy treatment to control sebaceous secretion, to reduce enlarged pores and to improve cases of acneic cooperies. (20%+14%)

Indications:


Acne-prone skin
Folliculitis
Hyperkeratosis
Acneic couperose

Azelaic Acid It has antibacterial properties thanks to the inhibition of cellular and disinfectant protein synthesis. It is used to clean pores and blackheads because it reduces the bacteria colony that attacks the face.

 

  • TOSKANI Radiance Peel


Is a chemical peel with superficial action and with innovative whitening ingredients. These ingredients make it possible to achieve a homogeneous skin tone by attenuating pigmentary irregularities. Radiance Peel is an anti-ageing peel that implements a lasting whitening effect and diminishes the visible signs of photo-damage and provides a brightening effect by removing dead surface cells. 

Indications:

Chloasma and Melasma 
Age spots
Photo-ageing
Solar lentigo

 
Active ingredients:


Hexylresorcinol to Improves the appearance of rough, scaly, or hardened skin, reduces the dark spots and uneven skin tone caused by hyperpigmentation disorders.



Glycolic Acid to promotes the exfoliation of three superficial layers of the horny layer through an alteration of corneocytes cohesion. It stimulates cell renewal, promotes glycosaminoglycans synthesis as well as it increases epidermis hydration level and strengthens skin’s natural barrier function. It has a great capacity of trans dermic penetration due to its small molecular size.



Lactic Acid It has lightening effect on skin colour since it promotes a more homogeneous spreading of melanin and inhibits tyrosinase action, an enzyme that takes part in melanogenesis first steps. It stimulates epidermis and dermis thickening. It promotes the increasing of hyaluronic acid concentration in extracellular matrix, giving the skin hydration and firmness.

Kojic Acid Its depigmentation activity comes from the copper’s chelating action and its inhibition. It functions as skin brightening improving the appearance of pigmentation spots, softening freckles and unifying skin’s tone.




  • TOSKANI Mesoshine peel


Is a superficial peel that removes impurities and promotes skin cellular renewal. When applied on the face, it works by exfoliating dead cells off the surface of the skin, which reduces the number of blocked pores and helps keep the skin clean and healthy. Mesoshine Peel prepares skin for cosmetic procedures, improving the absorption of susbstances applied after. It is a peeling especially recommended for very sensitive skins which are not used to chemical peelings.


Indications:

Stretch marks/scars
Flaccidity
Seborrheic dermatitis 
Dandruff


 Active ingredients:

Azelaic AcidIt, has antibacterial properties thanks to the inhibition of cellular and desinfectant protein synthesis. It is used to clean pores and blackheads because it reduces the bacteria colony that attacks the face.


Urea, is a natural component of our skin’s tissues. It makes up to 10% of natural moisturizing factor, which decreases with age. Applied on the skin, it penetrates the stratum corneum, where it readily absorbs and re- tains water, thus increasing the capacity of the skin to hold moisture and rehydrate. At a molecular level, urea modifies the structure of aminoacids and polypeptides chains within the skin, which is important for helping to moisturize our delicate tissues. Urea’s numerous benefits is that it helps to accelerate the skins cellular renewal process. Urea works in syner- gy with ingredients that create the molecular structure of the skin.It actively works to remove dead skin cells and substances from the horny layer, improving cellular turnover in the epidermis and preventing water loss through the skin.



Allantoin, accelerates the natural process of the skin to release the dead or aged cells and replace them with new and healthy.
Promotes and accelerates regeneration processes of the skin.​
