This is how the fruit acid peel works
Before each fruit acid peeling, a precise skin analysis is carried out with measurement of the skin’s most important functions. Tailored to your skin type, a superficial, fine peeling of the skin is then carried out with amino acid or glycolic acid. An experienced skin specialist first carefully cleanses the skin and then spreads the fruit acid on the face, neck and décolleté. The fruit acid is neutralised after a few minutes and then washed off. The exposure time depends on the clinical picture, the skin type and the individual tolerance. The pores are open. Blackheads can then be easily removed. The advantage of the fruit acid peeling is that it shows an improvement in the entire face and does not only work on selective points.
Variations of fruit acid treatments
BellaDerma has been using fruit acid treatments with amino acids, glycolic acid, the AHA peel and the TCA peel for many years to improve the skin’s appearance and to tighten the skin.
The amino acids used for fruit acid peeling are enriched with vitamin C and minerals from Dead Sea salt. The three carboxyl groups in the molecular structure of the amino acids, together with their hydrogen ions, ensure that the neutralisation of free radicals is three times higher than with normal fruit acids.
Glycolic acid is the best known and most effective of the alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) and the most scientifically studied fruit acid. Glycolic acid peels offer the patient a broader spectrum of effects than conventional cosmetic fruit acid peels. At the same time, the risk of irritated skin is significantly lower with a glycolic acid peel. This is because no horny layer is detached from other layers of the epidermis during a glycolic acid peel. A glycolic acid peel therefore provides an optimal balance between effectiveness and skin tolerance.
Another effective peeling substance is trichloroacetic acid (TCA). TCA is not toxic and is not absorbed by the body. This is because TCA has a keratolytic effect by causing the epidermal protein to coagulate. With trichloroacetic acid, a distinction is made between the liquid form with 20% or 35% concentration or the trichloroacetic chelate in the form of a creamy mask in combination with herbal healing earth with 11% or 16% TCA chelate, which corresponds to a concentration of 25% or 45% liquid TCA.
Combination with other methods
For most blemishes and skin problems, fruit acid peeling as a single treatment method alone does not always bring the desired maximum success. In most cases, a combination of different methods (IPL technology, microdermabrasion and fruit acid peeling) in combination with individually tailored preparations is useful for effective treatment.
However, it is not only first-class preparations with scientifically proven effectiveness that are decisive, but also a unique combination of methods that intensifies the success of the treatment. In the specialist centres of BellaDerma, in Berlin Mitte and Berlin Charlottenburg, you are at the right place when it comes to an individual and optimal combination of professional apparative and dermatological treatments.
Visible success after the first treatment
To visibly improve the skin quality, about 4-6 fruit acid treatments are usually sufficient. You perform the fruit acid peeling at one to two-week intervals and each session lasts about 30 minutes. See for yourself: The success is already clearly visible after the first session.
