Ageing of the skin can be put into two categories: intrinsic and extrinsic. Intrinsic ageing happens naturally over time and is determined by a person’s genetics. Mild facial wrinkling, expression lines, and dry, sensitive skin are likely a result of intrinsic ageing. Extrinsic ageing is a result of external factors like unprotected sun exposure, smoking, alcohol use, pollution, and other lifestyle choices. Sun exposure is the leading cause of extrinsic ageing, resulting in breakdown of the skin’s support structure, discoloration, wrinkles, sagging, and in some cases even cancer. As we age, the appearance, texture, and structure of the skin deteriorates.
Our skin renews and regenerates naturally every 28 days, but with time and at certain times of life, adolescence, pregnancy, menopause, this process becomes irregular and slower; provoking the appearance of skin alterations: acne, shine, dilated pores, wrinkles, dull tone, pigmentation spots, etc. Mesoestetic peels aim to remove superficial layers of the skin in order to stimulate cell rejuvenation in order to obtain even skin tone and texture.
