Chemical Peelings

During a chemical peeling, the skin is treated with a (high) concentration of acid. The ingredients in the peeling lower the PH-value (acidity) of the skin, which makes dead skin cells easier to release and stimulates cell renewal. This results in a fresh, even, moisturized skin. Making the skin more acidic also has a beneficial effect on the deeper skin layers, because collagen and elastin are produced. This results in a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. A chemical peeling promotes the health of the skin, which makes the treatment very suitable for various conditions and for skin improvement.

Which chemical peeling is suitable for you depends on your type of skin and what you want to achieve. Our skin therapists provide a customized treatment plan. Thus, the right peeling (cure) is advised, suitable for your skin condition.

At Van Lennep Clinic you can go for the following exfoliations:

Environ - LACM Cool Peel system

With a low concentration of lactic acid a ph-lowering of the skin is achieved which stimulates and releases growth factors to the skin. Bacteria are destroyed, dead skin cells are removed and the hydration of the skin is stimulated. The LACM Cool Peel is ideal for the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, thick and rough skin with open pores, or problem skin such as acne and rosacea. This mild peeling is also very suitable to rid the sun aged skin of e.g. actinic keratosis, a mild stage of skin cancer. The skin can recover and is better protected against the occurrence of sun damage and eventually skin cancer. This peeling increases the absorption of vitamins considerably. The skin becomes purer, the skin structure smoother and blemishes fade. The strength of the peeling is adapted to the individual skin condition. It is our goal to make the skin healthier in a gentle but effective way, with little discomfort and without prolonged recovery period. For optimal results, the peeling is offered in a course of 3 to 6 treatments at weekly intervals, during which the intensity can be built up. With this peeling there is little or no downtime visible, making you look presentable immediately after the peeling.

Indications:

● Acne

● Rosacea

● A dehydrated skin

● Fine lines and wrinkles

● Sun damage

● Actinic keratosis

● Very sensitive skin

 

Environ - TCA Peeling Anti-Aging

Environ’s TCA peeling consists of 2.5% tri-chloroacetic acid and is aimed at tackling and improving sun-damaged, ageing skin. The degree of intensity can be built up by applying multiple layers to the face. A Medium TCA Peeling contains between 1-3 layers and a Strong TCA Peeling contains 4-6 layers. After the Medium TCA Peeling the skin may temporarily become more red and a stronger TCA Peeling may cause the skin to peel. Because the Environ peelings contain a safe concentration, both the redness and the shedding is of short duration (maximum 5-7 days). After the treatment, the skin should be well protected against UV light. With a mineral makeup we can make the skin look presentable again immediately after the treatment. Our skin therapists advise after each peeling which products can be used additionally at home to protect the skin and prolong the result of the treatment. Before you can undergo this peeling, you should use at least 3 consecutive weeks of vitamin A.

 

Indications:

● Fine lines

● Wrinkles

● A coarse skin structure

● A sun-damaged skin
