In this article, we will talk about a cosmetic procedure that is now very common – gas-liquid facial peeling. This is real progress in cosmetology.
This type of peeling appeared recently. The main advantage, in comparison with chemical peeling, is that gas-liquid peeling is carried out without the use of chemicals.
Chemical peeling is a way to rejuvenate the skin by applying acid solutions, mainly glycolic, to it. But, unfortunately, this procedure can have undesirable consequences due to the use of acids. Very often, after a session of glycolic peeling, patients burn their face for a long time and even some wounds bleed. You have to rub wound healing agents into your face in several layers. It is also not recommended to carry out this peeling in the summer. Thus, after this procedure, you need to go through a long rehabilitation period.
And gas-liquid peeling is much safer for the skin and can be carried out at any time of the year. It is usually carried out as follows: using a special device, a jet of compressed gas is directed onto the skin – air or pure oxygen and a certain liquid. The liquid is selected for each individually. Various vitamin cocktails or plain water are used as a special liquid.
What is peeling used for?
Gas-liquid peeling is used not only to cleanse the skin of dead cells, but also to rid the skin of the face of various age spots, acne, skin damage, as well as to smooth out wrinkles. This operation makes the skin more elastic, improves muscle tone. This peeling is also good because it is impossible to bring any infection to the skin, since no chemicals are used and there is no mechanical contact with the skin. In addition, this procedure contributes to the introduction of the necessary vitamins into the body in order to prolong the youthfulness of the skin.
When working in the lymphatic drainage mode, swelling of the face can be reduced.
This procedure is good because it can help to get rid of quite serious skin diseases, such as acne (acne), seborrhea, as well as scars on the skin and cellulite.

Description of gas-liquid peeling
To carry out this procedure, the Jet Peel device is used. This equipment was manufactured in Israel. It creates a finely divided gas-liquid jet and is able to direct it to the corresponding area of the skin under high pressure at high speed. The strength of the jet can be adjusted. The jet forms a hole in the skin and all dead cells are sucked out of it. There is a cleansing, and at the same time massage and hydration of the skin.
First, the skin of the face must be cleaned of fat and cosmetics. Then the specialist, having chosen a certain nozzle, proceeds to treat the skin area, that is, it acts on it with a jet of liquid and gas under a pressure of 8 atm. And at a speed of 300 m/s. If it is required to rejuvenate the skin, then the distance from the skin area to the beginning of the jet should be about 2 cm. If it is necessary to cleanse the skin of dead cells, then this distance can be increased to 7 cm.
Peeling is divided into light, simple and strong. The first resembles a regular massage, it is used only for people with young skin, the second leads to skin rejuvenation, and with the help of the third, age spots, acne and other skin damage are eliminated.
Such peeling can be performed not only on the face, but also on other areas of the skin, such as the buttocks, abdomen.
This operation does not cause significant discomfort to the client. He only feels the coolness from the jet and a light massage. The procedure lasts approximately 15-20 minutes. And the number of sessions is selected individually for each – somewhere once a week for 1-2 months. But due to the intense massage that the gas-liquid jet causes, significant improvements can be seen after the first two sessions. Immediately after the procedure, you can sunbathe. It is not considered mandatory to use sunscreens, since after peeling the possibility of sunburn is much lower, and the tan itself lies evenly.
