Rejuvenate facial skin can be done by applying an acid to the epidermis: this is the peeling, which can be medium or deep depending on the strength of the solution used. By abrading the stratum corneum, the acid rids the face of dead cells and triggers the cell regeneration which allows you to find a new radiance, firmer, more radiant, rejuvenated skin.

Benefits and results
After the regeneration period, the patient regains a luminous complexion and noticeably to dramatically rejuvenated skin. The texture of the skin, its texture and the complexion are markedly improved.
The result can be exceptional with a rejuvenation of several years in one session with the deep peeling. The skin is toned and lifted.
The doctor will recommend the peeling method best suited to your skin type and the signs of aging.
The medium or deep peeling technique
For a medium peel, the doctor uses glycolic or trichloroacetic acid (TCA 30) to reduce imperfections and smooth the epidermis.
Deep phenol peeling, more powerful; allows a complete renewal of the dermis and the epidermis. The effect is comparable to a facelift. Dr. Christophe Desouches, an experienced doctor, has the necessary experience to perform this complex procedure in complete safety.
How is a peeling session performed?
Before a peeling session, it is necessary to prepare the skin using a specific preparation three weeks before the peeling. During this phase, the patient will avoid applying masks, scrubs or other "abrasive" treatment. Likewise, the use of self-tanning products, exfoliating agents or any other cream is prohibited. The skin should not be tanned, which is why rigorous sun protection must be observed during this period.
The session begins with a thorough cleansing of the skin.
The doctor applies the acid product TCA 30 to the face or the areas to be treated. The number of passes depends on the condition of the skin and the depth of the area to be treated.
The skin is then rid of the acid solution, then a moisturizing and healing cream is applied.
The intervention lasts about 30 minutes.
The product used being more powerful, Dr. Christophe Desouches will perform local anesthesia to relieve the patient. The doctor applies a phenol-based solution to the face or the areas to be treated. The skin is then rid of the solution, then a moisturizing and healing cream is applied.
The procedure lasts approximately one hour.
What are the consequences of an intervention?
A medium peel generates slight swelling which generally lasts a few days. Then after 5 days, the skin desquamation reveals a pink skin which will regain its natural complexion after 1 month postoperatively.
The deep peel results in complete desquamation of the skin of the face which results in redness then covered with fine crusts. A period of social eviction of one to two weeks is to be expected. After 2 weeks, the epidermis is visibly regenerated and rejuvenated. The final result is visible after disappearance of redness in the 6th month.
