Peeling is a skin-cleaning procedure that uses tailored cosmetic products. The underlying mechanism of peeling is as follows: the components stimulate the exfoliation of old epidermal cells and accelerate the formation of new ones. Depending on the type of peeling and the intensity of its effect, a number of problems can be solved, such as acne, pigmentation, age-related changes, etc.
There are three types of peelings:
Chemical peeling – exfoliates dead skin cells using an acid or a combination thereof in the substance. Acids dissolve the connections between keratinized cells on the skin’s surface and contribute to its renewal. This procedure is mainly used to deal with acne and pigmentation, as well as to even out skin tone and smooth out wrinkles.
It is crucial to carry out this type of peeling only with specialists because the wrong dosage or exposure type of acids can cause significant damage to the skin, such as burns, scars, or even exacerbation of existing problems.
Mechanical peeling is performed using special equipment. The procedure of mechanical peeling may include laser, ultrasound, vacuum, etc. its advantage is the possibility of a controlled and dosed effect on the desired area of the skin. The mechanical peeling works great with mimicking wrinkles, vascular stars, pigment spots, and other skin imperfections that can be seen with the naked eye.
Physical peeling stimulates the exfoliation of keratinized cells of the epidermis and increases blood microcirculation with a physical impact.
The types of physical peeling include scrubbing, gommage, brushing, microdermabrasion, as well as Algae peeling, which became a discovery in modern cosmetology.
Algae Peeling is one of the most effective and safest types of mechanical peeling. Its effect is based on the penetration of spicules (microneedles) into the skin with subsequent dissolution. The key feature of Algae Peeling is that it does not contain acids and consists only of natural components, which makes it suitable for all skin types and minimizes the risk of post-peeling burns.
ZENA professionals invented the most effective combination of components for Algae peeling and created the innovative product Natural Pro-Retinol Peel Skin Care.
The components of Natural Pro-Retinol Peel Skin Care and their interaction
Natural Pro-Retinol Peel Skin Care is an acid-free, gentle, and delicate peeling that exfoliates dead cells while preserving the microbiome, restores the skin, and strengthens the barrier.
Peeling’s composition contains powerful active substances, namely: algae extract, dunaliella salina, carbomer, glycerin, sorbitol, d-panthenol, bocucillol, ficin, and leucidal.
The combination of 2 types of algae stimulates the restoration of the collagen and elastin structure, which is the skeleton of proteins. This makes the skin elastic and resilient. The first Algae with microneedles allow the components to penetrate even deeper into the skin. Dunaliella salina contains beta-carotene (proretinol), which is a provitamin of vitamin A. This component is a powerful antioxidant and reliably protects the skin from oxidative stress, thereby protecting against ageing.
Bocucillol is an antioxidant from Psoralea scutellum, which has a bactericidal and antifungal effect. It regulates the expression of the “youth gene” by affecting receptors sensitive to retinoic acid. In combination with beta-carotene, the components eliminate pigmentation, even out tone, and eliminate skin imperfections. Beta-carotene also has a healing effect, eliminates inflammation and redness, and protects against the effects of ultraviolet rays.
Ficin is a component from the leaves and stems of the fig tree, which exfoliates the layer of dead cells, restores the skin, and improves the body’s exfoliation process. It is often used in antiaging peelings.
