What is a scalp peeling?
Scalp peeling allows you to cleanse the skin of cosmetic residues and remove dead epidermis from it. During a short massage, which is an inseparable element of peeling, blood circulation is improved, the bulbs are oxygenated and it makes it easier for the skin to absorb nutrients. A properly performed scalp scrub can also heal many skin diseases, such as dandruff and seborrhea.
The scalp requires regular cleansing and exfoliation to function properly. In the case of seborrhoea, itching and dandruff, peeling of the scalp is a great help in reducing problems. Scalp peeling is also recommended for patients who have no problems with skin and hair loss. The treatment helps to keep the scalp in good condition and balance.
Scalp peeling is therefore recommended for both women and men as a preventive skin cleansing and preparing it for the ingestion of nutrients.

Scalp scrub is also recommended for people who have no problems with the scalp and hair loss. It helps to keep the skin in good condition and balance. It is also recommended as a way to prepare the skin before ingestion of nutrients and active substances found in trichological preparations.
After the peeling is applied, the skin is cleansed and oxygen is supplied to the hair follicles, which prevents hair loss and helps in the production of new hair.
Contraindications for this procedure
Not every Patient who wants to enjoy a beautiful scalp and shiny hair can benefit from scalp peeling. The treatment is not recommended for people with bacterial and viral skin infections and damaged epidermis in the form of fresh scratches and wounds.
Any inflamed conditions are also a contraindication to peeling. That is why it is so important to consult a specialist before each treatment, during which any contraindications will be detected early enough.
The course of the procedure
A head scrub is a simple, pleasant and quick care treatment. You should apply the appropriate preparation on the scalp (before washing the hair), at the same time separating the hair, strand by strand, and gently massage it into the skin with your fingertips. The massage is performed without rinsing, so you can stimulate the hair follicles. After the peeling is massaged in, the preparation is left on the hair for about 2-3 minutes to increase its effectiveness. After this time, the scrub is washed off with warm water, and the hair can then be thoroughly shampooed and conditioner applied.
An effectively nourished scalp with peeling is the basis for many cleansing treatments. The use of peeling allows you to effectively cleanse the scalp from dirt, dust, remnants of cosmetics, sebum and pathogenic microorganisms. However, it should be remembered that the preparations must be adapted to the type of skin.
An experienced trichologist will surely advise preparations with a neutral pH for the skin, so that they do not disturb the natural protective mantle of the scalp. For dry skin, substances that do not contain SLES and SLS – aggressive detergents that irritate the scalp are a good choice. For satisfactory results, however, it is recommended to perform 1 treatment once a day and once a month as a reminder.
Convalescence after surgery
After the scalp peeling, patients do not have to follow strict rules and the convalescence period. Just remember that the treated areas may be more sensitive and slightly red. However, these symptoms disappear on their own after a few hours. After the end of the treatment, it is not recommended to wash the scalp frequently and wear hats that are oppressive.
Scalp scrub in a nutshell
The results of the treatment
Proper cleansing of the scalp with peeling helps to prevent dandruff, irritation, excessive greasy hair and burden it. Good cosmetics cleanse the scalp, replenish the deficiency of nutrients and restore the hair’s healthy appearance. Regular scalp peeling also allows you to stimulate and strongly regenerate epidermal cells, which are the source of active cells. As a result, the natural moisturizing factor is produced and the water-lipid barrier of the skin functions more efficiently. The connections between epidermal cells are also loosened, as a result of which additional substances found in cosmetic preparations are better absorbed.
Scalp peeling also removes cosmetic residues, impurities and bacteria, regulates the work of sebaceous glands, improves blood circulation in the hair follicles and improves the overall condition of the scalp. The treatment uses cosmetics that support the care and treatment of certain diseases (dermatitis, dandruff and hair loss).
The first results after the treatment can be seen two weeks after its completion. At the beginning, the hair will strengthen and stop falling out, and the scalp will be nourished. Patients may also notice hair thickening and new baby hair regrowth. The growth factor FGF and other ingredients contained in the preparation are responsible for stimulating the hair follicles, preventing them from falling out and nourishing the scalp. After the end of the therapy, the structure of the hair improves significantly. Medical results also include regenerating the hair roots and improving blood circulation in the scalp tissue. The effects also include more rebound hair, nourished scalp, reduced itching of the skin and improved work of the sebaceous glands.
