Face peeling for rejuvenation
A chemical peel is a technique used to improve the appearance of the skin.
A chemical peel is a technique used to improve the appearance of the skin mostly on the face, neck or hands. A chemical solution is applied to the skin that causes it to exfoliate and eventually peel off. The new, regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled.

There are three basic types of chemical peels:

Superficial, i.e. “lunchtime” or “quick” peel: a mild acid is used to penetrate only the outer layer of skin and consequently gently exfoliates it. This treatment is most often used for mild skin imperfections or mild discoloration as well as for those who want to improve the facial skin quality but due to lack of free time are not candidates for stronger treatments.

Medium peel: a slightly stronger acid is used that penetrates into the middle skin layer and removes damaged skin cells. Usually, this treatment is used to improve age spots, fine wrinkles or some stronger discolorations as well as to treat skin keratosis.

Deep peel: stronger trichloroacetic acid and phenol are used that penetrate into deeper skin layers. This method treats stronger wrinkles, age spots, expressed discolorations, scars and significant skin imperfections. The result of this treatment is a significant improvement of skin condition, but the recovery lasts longer.

Which skin conditions can be treated with a chemical peel?

  • Acne scars
  • Signs of skin aging - atrophy of the skin, wrinkles, and age spots
  • Skin hyperpigmentation
  • Melasma
  • Scars
  • Sun damaged skin

What to expect after the treatment?

Each chemical peel treatment results in redness, followed by skin peeling, which removes damaged skin cells. With mild peels, these changes do not last long and go away within a couple of days. With stronger solutions, skin bubbles and crusts may appear. After treatment it is important to treat the skin according to the doctor's instructions. After every chemical peeling treatment, it is necessary to avoid all sun exposure.

During consultation, the doctor will assess your skin condition and choose the most appropriate treatment to address your problem. It is important that you have enough time for recovery and it is therefore advisable to tell your doctor about your upcoming plans.
