Chemical peeling

What is chemical peeling?

Chemical peeling is the oldest method of rejuvenation appearing in historical records from ancient Egypt. Three thousand years ago, women were bathed in milk and naturally polished their skin and brought back the glow, and these techniques have, of course, been upgraded to the highest level today.

Depending on the wishes and needs, a wide range of organic acids are available to patients, used for refreshing the face, but also for treating acne, wrinkling, scarring …

It is a simple treatment that, depending on the type of peeling, the skin type and the patient’s needs, is usually carried out in multiple treatments over a period of one to two weeks, irrespective of the age of the year. Immediately after the peeling skin is noticeably fresher, but the final result will be visible several weeks after the treatment. Chemical peeling has a long lasting effect, stimulating the formation of collagen and elastin in the skin, which will make the face freshening day by day.

Chemical peeling is not recommended for pregnant women and nurses, nor to persons who have been operated for six months or are suffering from immunosuppressive diseases. Also, chemical peeling is not performed in an area subjected to radiation or laser treatment. In case of active herpes infection on the face, it will also be necessary to postpone the procedure.
