Chemical peeling

Starting from


Chemical peel is a cosmetic procedure used to improve the appearance of the skin on the face. This procedure involves the application of a chemical solution to the skin, resulting in the peeling of the outer layer of the skin. This promotes skin regeneration, the removal of dead skin cells, and improves the texture and tone of the skin.


Candidates for chemical peel typically include individuals with various skin concerns such as acne, acne scars, uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, or sun-damaged skin.


Before undergoing a chemical peel, patients consult with a dermatologist for a skin assessment and the selection of an appropriate type of chemical peel. Preparation may involve prepping the skin with special products or avoiding specific treatments or products that could irritate the skin before the peel.


During the treatment, a chemical solution is applied to the skin of the face and left for a specific period to achieve the desired peeling effect. After a certain time, the solution is removed, and the skin is thoroughly rinsed with water.


Chemical peels can result in improved skin texture, reduced imperfections, even skin tone, reduced hyperpigmentation, and decreased visibility of fine lines and wrinkles. The skin may become smoother, fresher, and more youthful in appearance.


After the procedure, it is important to follow the physician's instructions for post-treatment skin care. This may involve using special creams, avoiding sun exposure, and limiting the use of certain products or treatments that could irritate the skin after the chemical peel. Regular hydration of the skin is also important to maintain the improvements achieved.
