  • peeling of medium depth contains trichloroacetic acid, salicylic acid and alpha hydroxyacids in a concentration sufficient to get rid of facial wrinkles, age spots and small scars;
  • surface peeling is the most gentle method of action, since it contains the least amount of acids, it slightly brightens, reduces small pigment spots, opens pores and removes "black dots".

The advantages of the tool include the following:

  • solving of several problems simultaneously: large pores, excess fat content, chronic acne and scars, pigment spots;
  • excellent compatibility with such procedures as: hyaluronic acid injections (for smoothing deep wrinkles), diamond microdermabrasion (for removal of deep scars and traces of acne), etc .;
  • activation of the collagen and elastane synthesis;
  • dissolving of excess keratinized tissue cells;
  • peeling improves the texture and color of the face;
  • peeling performs the function of lifting, making the skin more elastic and flexible.

Как избавиться от следов после прыщей? Despite all the advantages, the method also has the following negative aspects:

  • discomfort during the procedure;
  • mandatory course treatment for a sustainable effect;
  • prolonged recovery period.

The cost and number of sessions depend on the depth and range of exposure. Consultation of a highly qualified doctor will allow you to choose a technique that can save your problem with maximum efficiency.

Beauty injections

For the treatment of acne scars, the methods that are aimed at rejuvenation, for example, injections of hyaluronic acid, are widely used in cosmetology. The drug is injected directly into the scar, thus smoothing it.

The advantages include the following:

  • high level of efficiency;
  • painlessness;
  • quick result.

The only significant disadvantage of the procedure is the short duration of its action.


Dermabrasion refers to quite traumatic methods of scarring treatment. The doctors turn to it only if you need to get rid of a very noticeable scar. Diamond grinding allows you to smooth the scar, while leveling it on one level with the skin. In the case of keloids, dermabrasion of the face is carried out after its surgical removal.

Microdermabrasion of the skin allows to achieve the maximum result in the fight against spots, post acne, scars and scoring. At the same time, it stimulates the processes of regeneration, the production of elastane and collagen. Significant disadvantages are the morbidity of the procedure and a long recovery period.

Modern cosmetology can cope with almost any aesthetic lack of skin without the use of surgical methods. The main task of the patient on the way to perfection is to choose a qualified doctor who will help to select the complex of measures to combat the disease.
