In the modern sense, peeling refers to various types of procedures aimed at cleansing the skin. Gone are the days when a person with congenital skin defects had to endure ridicule and catch the sidelong glances of others all his life.

A lot of ways have been invented to cope with acne, acne, scars, scars, skin diseases, increased oiliness or dryness of the skin, and not only on the face, but throughout the human body. One of the progressive and promising achievements in the field of medical cosmetology was the invention of gas-liquid peeling.
What is gas-liquid peeling
Gas-liquid peeling is a non-contact cosmetic skin cleansing procedure. This is a general definition of peeling, which can be superficial, medium, and very deep, depending on the request of the patient-client and on the recommendations of a cosmetologist-dermatologist. This peeling works great as a healing procedure on skin areas all over the body – from head to toe, if necessary.
The gas-liquid peeling procedure is carried out using a special Jet Peel device, developed by Israeli scientists and successfully used in the treatment of many dermatological problems. Often, gas-liquid peeling is referred to by the name of the JetPeel-peeling device.
The essence of the skin cleansing method using gas-liquid peeling is the rapid delivery of micronized drops of water, saline or any other necessary drug using supersonic gas jet speed to the deepest nooks and crannies of the dermis. The Jet Peel device, which consists of a compressor that supplies gas (carbon dioxide, oxygen or air) under pressure to a special nozzle with a nozzle, from where a drug or saline solution enters. The flow rate of gas with liquid is very high, more than the speed of sound, which causes deep holes in the skin. From such a pressure, the intercellular bonds of the epidermis are torn, and the cold from the jet creates the effect of anesthesia, due to which the procedure is practically painless for the patient-client.
Gas-liquid peeling is suitable for people (both women and men) with any type of skin, any age, universal for all seasons. This means that you can do such a peeling right before the holidays and at the same time – calmly sunbathe in the sun, without forgetting, however, to cover the skin with sunscreen.
