WHAT IS CHEMICAL PEELING?
Chemical peeling is a treatment consisting in applying one or more chemicals for the purpose of controlled skin peeling. It is a method of stimulating and nourishing of the skin. There are three types of peels: deep, medium and superficial.
Deep peeling is the most invasive method consisting in applying strong acids that permeate the epidermis and act on the dermis layer. This type of peeling allows you to reduce scars, wrinkles, remove hyperpigmentation and improve skin tone.
Medium peeling is a less invasive procedure, it differs from deep peeling in terms of the substances used and the depth of action. It works on the epidermis and dermis of the skin, which allows you to improve skin texture, reduce wrinkles and scars.
Superficial peeling is the mildest method consisting in exfoliation of the epidermis only. This treatment allows you to eliminate minor wrinkles, acne and hyperpigmentation, as well as improve skin tone.

The frequency of chemical peeling depends on the type of treatment and individual needs and reactions of the patient’s skin.
Superficial peeling may be performed every 4-6 weeks.
Medium and deep peelings should be performed less frequently, every 6-12 months.
The final number of treatments and their frequency is determined during an individual consultation taking into account the patient’s needs and expectations.
