Vacation time is the period of the highest temperatures and the strongest sunshine. Then we spend more time outside enjoying the good weather. Strong exposure to UV radiation is one
The use of ablative lasers or treatments based on high concentration of retinol is contraindicated for many office treatments. There are a number of treatments available in the offer of our Institute, which can be performed during the summer. One of the types of holiday beauty therapy are medical peelings. The effectiveness of the holiday therapy is related not only to the selection of the right product by the Cosmetologist, but also to the home care (in particular, the daily strong photoprotection).
Holiday medical scrubs are a wide group of substances that strongly exfoliate and affect the skin and its cells.
One of the medical peelings that can be used regardless of the weather is a peeling based on mandelic acid. Mandelic acid has an antibacterial, exfoliating, regulating the secretion of sebum, moisturizing and inhibiting effect on inflammation. It is an acid recommended in the treatment of acne blackheads and with single inflammatory changes. In addition, mandelic acid is recommended in the therapy of skin with the first signs of aging.
Another chemical peeling that can be used regardless of the season is ferulic acid. It is a substance that inhibits free radicals, reduces inflammation, reduces the formation of discoloration and brightens existing stains. Medical peelings based on ferulic acid have antioxidant and anti-aging properties. Since the substance does not exfoliate the epidermis, it is often a component of office products used in banquet procedures. Ferulic acid is especially recommended for the skin with photo-aging, chronic aging, skin with discoloration and dilated sebaceous gland mouths. Ferulic acid has an even stronger effect in combination with ascorbic acid. It is best to combine both substances in one procedure.
Another acid that can be safely performed throughout the year is azelaic acid. The substance inhibits the formation of discoloration, reduces the visibility of already existing stains and reduces sebum production. In addition, azelaic acid normalizes keratinization of the epidermis and has an antibacterial effect. Medical peelings based on azelaic acid are recommended for sensitive skin types with a tendency to blackhead. Even more: acne, rosacea, skin with pigmentation disorders, erythema and telangiectasias.
Lactobionic acid also belongs to the group of holiday medical scrubs.
It is a substance belonging to polyhydroxy acids. Medical scrubs based on lactobionic acid are characterized by a very delicate effect. Lactobionic acid causes minimal exfoliation, has a moisturizing, gently brightening and anti-inflammatory effect. In addition, it supports the protective barrier of the skin, so it is dedicated to dry, sensitive, with telangiectasias, erythema and symptoms of acne vulgaris.
Another year – round substance belonging to the group of acids is tranexamic acid.
It is characterized by depigmenting effect, reducing proliferation of melanocytes and reducing angiogenesis. Tranexamic acid inhibits the formation of discoloration and reduces already existing stains. In addition, it is characterized by a reduction of redness and post-inflammatory discoloration. Medical peelings with tranexamic acid are used in the therapy of vascular ceriums, with a tendency to discoloration of different aetiologies and for photo-aging ceriums.
Another acid that can be used safely all year round is lactic acid. It is characterized by moisturizing properties because it attracts water to the outer layers of the epidermis. Moreover, lactic acid accelerates the formation of ceramides, which have a positive effect on improving the epidermal barrier. Lactic acid has a brightening effect on discoloration by inhibiting tyrosinase and antioxidant. Medical peelings containing lactic acid are recommended in the therapy of sensitive, dry, dehydrated ceramides with the first signs of skin aging.
Another acid that can be used in year-round therapy is ascorbic acid (vitamin C).
Ascorbic acid itself does not exfoliate the epidermis, but can be used as a strengthening holiday medical scrubs therapy and as an independent product. Ascorbic acid is an essential substance for the production of collagen and elastin. It is a strong antioxidant that inhibits the formation of free radicals and reduces oxidative damage, e.g. caused by photoaging. Moreover, vitamin C enhances the antioxidant effect of vitamin E and ferulic acid. Ascorbic acid inhibits the formation of melanin in the epidermis. Thanks to this vitamin C brightens discoloration, evens up the color and brightens the skin.
What is more, systematically applied vitamin C reduces redness after exposure to sunlight. Ascorbic acid can be recommended for aging, gray, smoker’s skin, skin with discoloration, covered by acne vulgaris. Medical peelings used before the application of ascorbic acid will further strengthen its therapeutic effect. Vitamin C can also be used as part of a banquet treatment to strongly lighten, illuminate and moisturize the skin.
During the vacations there are many treatments that can be safely performed in the beauty salon. Nevertheless, you should always use creams with a high filter after the treatment, because strong exposure to the sun can result in the formation of free radicals, discoloration, redness and accelerate skin aging.
If you undergo invasive treatments to revitalize, thicken and rejuvenate the skin – apply vitamin C serum as early as the second day after the treatment! We invite you to visit us – J’adore Institute in Krakow and in Warsaw.
