What is exfoliation?

Exfoliation is a process that is performed on both the body and the face with the aim of removing impurities. And also cells from the most superficial layers of the skin, getting rid of what is popularly known as ‘dead skin’. In addition to making the skin look smoother and softer. Exfoliation allows any subsequent treatments, such as moisturizing, to penetrate more easily.

Why is it important to exfoliate the skin?

Our skin is capable of restoring dead cells with new ones in a natural way. This, in a process that occurs approximately every month.
However, over the years or due to the action of external agents such as the sun. Our dermis becomes fatigued, slowing down this renewal and being unable to eliminate all these dead cells. It is at this time when there may be a problem with oxygenation. And, consequently, a lack of hydration by not absorbing all the nutrients of the products applied.
The result, if we do not carry out this process, is much more dehydrated, dull, and, ultimately, fatigued skin.
Thus, in addition to ensuring skin regeneration, exfoliation makes the skin breathe better. In addition, stimulates cellular oxygenation. And allows it to absorb the active ingredients of the products applied in our daily beauty routine.

Types of exfoliation

You can perform superficial mechanical exfoliation at home. With products designed for this purpose is the most necessary step. However, there are other less superficial techniques in dermatology centers. For example, chemical exfoliation or chemical peeling and physical exfoliation.

Chemical peels use agents such as acids and enzyme preparations to remove layers of dead skin. This treatment can go through deeper levels depending on their concentration.

Microderm with enzyme in  Chicago can be one of that kind and you can find it at our Spa in Chicago.

Physical exfoliation, on the other hand, can be performed by laser. This is a deep treatment that is usually preceded by the application of anesthesia. Or, also by cryotherapy, known as cryosurgery or carbonic snow. This is a process that exposes the skin to extreme cold to achieve these effects in the deeper layers of the dermis.
