“Tell us about ultrasonic peeling! Usually they write that rosacea is a contraindication for such a procedure, and my cosmetologist said that it can be done with rosacea. Also interested in the difference between glycolic and salicylic peels. I have quite oily skin, and after all the advice of "experts" I was completely confused"

The cosmetologist's answer:
It is not in vain that ultrasonic peeling is considered to be more gentle and safe, because it is suitable for all skin types and does not provoke allergies. Ultrasonic waves painlessly destroy molecular bonds between the cells of the surface layer of the skin - the epidermis, with their subsequent exfoliation. Oily skin with enlarged pores and open comedones, i.e. "Black dots" is an indication for ultrasound peeling. It can be carried out with light ─ first and second ─ degrees of acne (of course, if there is no exacerbation). As for rosacea, if it is pronounced, then peeling should not be carried out in any case.
As for rosacea, if it is pronounced, ultrasonic peeling should not be carried out in any case.
If the spider veins are single and generally not very pronounced, the procedure can be carried out. Note that rosacea is not just a visual problem and aesthetic imperfection. It can be the initial sign of a serious skin disease rosacea (“rosacea”) and requires consultation with a dermatologist.
The choice of peeling also depends not only on the type, but also on the condition of the skin. For oily and dehydrated people, it is better to prefer a glycolic peel with a concentration of up to 20%, as it has a moisturizing and mild anti-inflammatory effect. Almond peeling is also suitable for such skin. With pronounced oily skin, 15-20% salicylic peeling is indicated, which has a pronounced anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and drying effect.
