Light Tightening Peel
Depending on the level of correction you may need, Dr. Dagan may recommend you a number of different strengths of peels. During your consult if we determine that you only need a small, superficial amount of correction that a light tightening peel may be right for you.
As we age and the years go by, we are subjected to many environmental elements. These elements, such as the sun, cause the skin to become damaged and the aging process itself causes the skin to lose a number of valuable compounds, such as collagen and elastin.
The loss of collagen causes your skin to lose its youthful look and feel, it becomes rougher, and less smooth and supple. Without collagen’s restorative properties our skin tends to become loose and saggy, as well as rough, discolored and full of blemishes.
The loss of elastin means your skin will become extremely loose, and lose its ability to “snap-back” from stretching and contracting, as skin is supposed to. Elastin provides skin its stretchy consistency, and without it, skin becomes saggy and begins to crack over time.
AHA or Alpha Hydroxyl Acids and How it Works?
For those who need a light level of skin tightening, and don’t have a lot of loose skin in the treatment area we recommend the use of our light tightening peels. Using AHA or Alpha Hydroxyl Acids, such as glycolic acid, lactic acid or any fruit acids, we are able to apply it to the skin and let it react on the skin’s outer layers. As it reacts on the outer layers, the body’s natural restorative nature begins to take place and it begins to heal itself. As the skin heals, it becomes much smoother, tighter and less rough. Alleviating patients of their sagging skin.
For best results, depending on your needed correction, the peel should be applied weekly or at longer intervals.
