What are the types of yellow peeling

All types of peels are divided according to the depth of cleaning (superficial, medium and deep) and the method of action (mechanical or chemical).

Yellow retinoic peel is a chemical peel. Cosmetologists distinguish 2 types of retinoic peels:

Superficial. Affects only the upper layers of the skin. Superficial peeling removes the stratum corneum of the epidermis and copes with a dull complexion, inflammation.

Medium. Works on the upper and middle layers of the skin. Suitable for removing scars, scars. Smoothes wrinkles and removes hyperpigmentation.

Different beauticians use different formulations for a yellow peel. For example, professional exfoliators have a concentration of about 10% retinoic acid and 90% excipients.

Some retinoic peels manufacturers use more aggressive formulations. Usually, they are applied in two steps with a difference of 1 day (due to the potent synthetic retinoic acid).

Other companies use formulations with natural retinoids. Such formulations are more gentle on the skin and are applied only once per procedure.

Yellow peeling with salicylic acid

Yellow peeling with salicylic acid is more effective, but requires longer skin regeneration. Retinoic peeling with salicylic acid is suitable for patients who have several days to effectively treat their skin.

How yellow peeling works

To better understand how the yellow peel works, you need to understand the composition of the exfoliation a little. The main active ingredient is retinoic acid (retinol). It is scientifically proven that retinol improves skin condition without aggressively affecting the dermis.

It is correct to point out that retinol is very similar to another acid, acetic. But unlike her, it has a more gentle, but no less effective effect.

Also, the yellow peeling contains special components that improve the functioning of fibroblasts. They activate the synthesis of collagen and elastin – the most important proteins of beauty and youth.

Thanks to this, the cells are provided with constant nutrition, quick recovery and high-quality self-renewal. The skin becomes more hydrated, smoother and healthier.

Interestingly, unlike other peels, retinol acts on the skin from the inside.

  • Glycolic acid. One of the most corrosive fruit acids, it is very damaging when exfoliating tissue. In contrast, retinol has a mild effect due to its work with the intercellular space, and not with the cell itself.
  • All retinoids have an interesting property – they work only with the basal layer of the dermis. It is there that the nucleation of skin cells occurs. As a result, nutrients penetrate faster and are more actively absorbed by young cells. As a result, abnormal and old cells are exfoliated, and new ones are replacing them.

The main difference between yellow retinoic peeling is that it does not injure skin cells, but helps them exfoliate naturally. And the composition of the peeling accelerates the processes of tissue renewal and regeneration.

How is the yellow face peeling procedure done?

  1. Consultation with a specialist. A preliminary consultation is necessary in order for a specialist to assess the condition and needs of your skin. It is at this stage that contraindications are revealed, if any.
  2. Preparation for peeling. To improve the quality of the procedure, you can prepare the skin at home. To do this, use products with retinoic acid no more than 0.1%. 7 days before and after the procedure, you cannot sunbathe and do other peels or hardware cleaning.
  3. Yellow skin peeling. Before the procedure, the specialist will thoroughly cleanse the skin from impurities and makeup residues. The necessary composition is applied to the epidermis and and take the recommended time. After the yellow mask turns into a film, it is removed.
  4. Application of a protective SPF cream.

The exfoliation process will be complete by about the end of the week after the procedure. To help your skin recover and renew itself faster, follow these simple tips:

  2. Before going outside (even in winter), use sun protection (SPF at least 30)
  3. In the first week, gentle washing without the use of aggressive components (alkali, acids and abrasive particles) is permissible. It is very important to let your skin exfoliate dead cells on its own!

Pros of yellow peeling: short course of treatment, quick rehabilitation and visible results

Disadvantages of yellow peeling: you need to be patient and have a few days free from activities and work to calmly restore the skin.

Why is yellow peeling harmful?

There is a well-founded opinion that retinoids, and more specifically retinol, can be harmful to health. However, in order for retinol to have a negative effect on health, a high concentration of the substance and a large amount of the drug are required.

In the process of retinoic peeling, a very small concentration of the active substance is used, which is eliminated by the body without any problems.

It has almost no risks of complications and side effects after the procedure, since the procedure is carried out by an experienced doctor in compliance with medical protocols of use.

Complications after retinoic peeling can occur in the following cases:

active tanning within a month after the procedure, pigmentation, individual characteristics of the body, hypermia, allergy to the components of the drug, itching, irritation, inept home use – chemical burn.

Draw your attention to! Homemade ic use may result in extensive chemical burns. When using retinoic peeling at home, you must strictly follow the application rules and strictly adhere to the recommended time.

Also, before peeling at home, you need to do an allergy test. To do this, a small amount of the composition is applied to the inner bend of the elbow, the film is removed and the mixture is allowed to wait for 6-12 hours. If during this time there is no itching, redness or swelling, the product can be used.

Can yellow peels fail or show very poor exfoliation results?

This is possible in two cases: if the specialist used a poor-quality drug or a fake, as well as in the case of an individual peculiarity of the skin. Thick, elastic skin is less susceptible to exfoliation and it is on this skin that the result may be negligible or completely absent.

In this case, experts recommend a preliminary stronger exfoliation of the stratum corneum and only then yellow peeling.

How many procedures do you need to see the result of retinoic peeling?

The first changes will be noticeable immediately after the first exfoliation procedure. We use high-quality formulations, so there is no need to undergo whole skin treatments. 1-2 procedures will be enough for an effective result.

Works best with IPL Phototherapy.

You can, but it’s dangerous. Modern online stores offer an extensive selection of yellow peel formulations for home use. However, we draw your attention to the fact that only the patient is responsible for the results of such a procedure.

Violation of the technique or protocol for performing the procedure, as well as changing the exposure time, may result in a chemical burn to the skin.

We do not recommend using retinoic peel formulations at home.

Пришла в куллазер на фонофорез после операции в другой клинике к Любви Сергеевне и стала постоянным клиентом. За два месяца процедур с моя ситуация значительно улучшилась. Доктор также правильно подобрала мне уход для лица и процедуры по моему типу кожи. Далее попала к Сергею Григорьевичу и тоже осталась супер довольна. Очень помог мне решить мою проблему, современный подход, ответственно относится к пациентам, всегда идет на встречу, за что огромное спасибо. Отдельное спасибо администратору Алене, всегда на связи, всегда находит подходящее время для записи. Весь персонал доброжелательный, улыбчивый - всегда приятно быть гостем.

Юлечка Михайловна отличный специалист, доволен работой и результатом от двух процедур лазерная шлифовка (одна на средних, вторая на максимальных настройках) плюс плазмолифтинг, плюс микроигольчатый rf лифтинг. И также 2 процедуры rejuran s делал. Реабилитация 1 неделя, все процедуры делал летом, сгладились старые рубцы, новые- до 1 года практически ушли, можно конечно ещё улучшать, но в рекламе косметических средств сниматься не собираюсь, а визуальный результат меня вполне устраивает, так что очень рекомендую !)
