Peptide – Lactic Acid
Skin rejuvenation programs based on a new generation of active peelings with polyhydroxy acids, peptides and hyaluronic acid. The resurfacing skin care work in synergy with the peels for optimum results all along the year.
Peptide active peel have been especially designed to address the problems of withering skin showing signs of aging.
This kind of treatment facilitates renewal of cells of dermis and epidermis, makes deep wrinkles less visible and removes fine lines. It also provides a good lifting effect and moisturizes skin. It is suitable for any skin type with signs of aging, particularly for dry skin. Peptide active peel resurfacing is one of the best solutions for mature skin. PEPTIDES AND THEIR PECULIAR PROPERTIES:
Peptides are molecular compounds, both found in nature and synthesized, that consist of amino acid monomers, which are linked by peptide (amide) bonds. Instead of amino group, they can contain, for instance, the carboxyl group. Nowadays, more than 1500 peptides are known. Scientists have studied their properties and learned how to synthesize them.
There are peptides in all living cells; they are active participants in all processes of a living organism. Both hormones and enzymes contain peptides. Peptides take part in regenerative processes and digestion; influence the immune, nervous, and vascular systems, and provide a pain alleviating effect. Some peptides can produce multiple results simultaneously. It is possible to synthesize peptides with properties, and thus, to create pharmaceuticals and cosmetics products that effectively address problems in medicine and aesthetics. Peptides in the peel solution are aimed directly at achieving results; at the same time, they have no side effects such as skin flaking, hyperpigmentation, and irritation.
INDICATIONS FOR PEPTIDE:
1. Thin loose skin, which has lost its tightness
2. Skin aging accompanied by a lot of small wrinkles
3. Chronological skin aging and photo ageing
4. Dry dehydrated skin
5. Deep mimic wrinkles
6. Small superficial wrinkles
7. Crow’s feet around eyes
8. Decreased skin tightness and elasticity.
Lactic Acid is an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA or fruit acid) produced by glycolysis. It is a natural, biologically safe product that plays an essential role in the carbohydrates metabolism in human body and is also an important component of the natural moisturizing factor of the skin (NMF).
The light-weight lactic acid molecules pass through cell membranes easily providing uniform penetration of lactic acid into skin layers and its uniform exposure all over the skin surface.
Lactic acid is one of the safest and gentle peeling agent. It is perfect for dry and hypersensitive skin, but can also work great for oily skin, what actually means that it suits all skin types.
Multi-action of lactic acid positively affects many processes including epidermal regeneration, skin microcirculation, glycosaminoglycan, collagen and ceramides synthesis providing deep moisture and strengthening skin’s barrier function.
As a light superficial peeling agent, lactic acid is primarily designed for young skin with minor problems, but it also can be used as a part of complex therapy by women over 35. The skin will look brighter, more even and hydrated, you will notice the beautiful glow, and the small wrinkles will fade away … The peel that does not peel or most commonly known as “THE LUNCH TIME PEEL” no down time, you can go back to your normal activities right away!
INDICATIONS FOR LACTIC ACID:
1. Epidermal dehydration (dry, thirsty, flaky skin)
2. Mild acne (comedones, blackheads, whiteheads, post-acne)
3. Striate atrophy of skin (fresh superficial stretch marks on face and body)
4. Epidermal hyperpigmentation (pigmentation spots on the outer layer of skin)
5. Hyperkeratosis (rough and thickened horny layer of skin)
6. Seborrhea (excessive oil secretion caused by a violation of the sebaceous glands)
7. Hypersensitive allergy-prone skin
8. Enlarged pores
9. Loose, sagging skin
10. Dull uneven skin tone
11. Photo-aging (skin aging caused by excessive UV-radiation)
12. Fine lines and superficial wrinkle
ADVANTAGES OF LACTIC ACID AND PEPTIDE PEEL:
Compared to other chemical agents, lactic acid and Peptide are the gentlest available, causing less skin discomfort. Lactic acid is hypoallergenic and skin-friendly being a naturally occurring skin component. Peptides that protect DNA from damage, stimulates its natural repair pathways and reverts senescence in fibroblast. Lactic acid and Peptide peels doesn’t cause a strong skin flaking due to its mild effect, peeling off a very thin layer of dead skin cells that is hardly noticeable.
In contrast to face peels with other AHAs, lactic acid peel and Peptide peel doesn’t cause skin dehydration providing ultra-deep moisture and restoring skin’s protective barrier. These unique properties of lactic acid peel make it suitable for both dry and oily skin.
Lactic acid and Peptides do not possess a photosensitizing effect, so it can be used all year round. In summer it’s important to use a strong sunscreen with at least SPF 50+ and follow recommendations to prevent complications. Avoid excessive sun exposure and overheating.
Lactic acid and Peptide are relatively safe for patients with darker skin tones having a low risk of post-peel hyperpigmentation. Have a FREE consultation with Facial Mania’s skin care specialists to decide what is the best peel for you.
