Application

The skin is composed of two layers, called the epidermis and dermis. The structure of the collagen fibers within the dermis is damaged as a result of sun damage and aging. If, the superficial layer of the dermis, the papillary dermis is damaged, there will be no marks during the recovery. If the reticular dermis, deep layer of the dermis, has been damaged, the recovery will result by leaving marks. Plastic surgeon will apply in chemical peeling process one of the existing chemicals. Glycolic acid is the most mild peeling agent. TCA (trichloracetic acid) is the most powerful chemical used in peeling of the skin. The deep peelings are made with phenol.

Before the chemical peeling, the skin has to be cleansed from oils and it is cleaned with a chemical solution to penetrate deeper. Epidermis is peeled during chemical applications and the agent is applied to the superficial layers of the skin.

The dermabrasion is a surgical procedure, which soften deep scars and fine wrinkles. The surgeon may numb the area by cooling or with an injection. The surgeon scrapes away the outermost layer of skin with a rough wire brush until the surgeon reaches the safest level that will make the scar or wrinkle less visible. The size of the application area is affected by the depth of the mark or wrinkles.

Laser applications are used to eliminate wrinkles around the eyes, called crow's feet, acne scars, caused by prolonged sun exposure.

The application is impossible, and it does not spread into surrounding tissues.

Oily pomades can be applied to the skin for the first ten days after application. It is normal for the rash to remain up to 4 weeks after the first recovery period. Your plastic surgeon will give you a light diet, and will recommend you to stay indoors and keep your skin away from external and extreme heat. After this procedure, it is very important to follow these recommendations. If hyperemia, excessive burning and itching occur days after application, you need to tell your doctor immediately.
