Chemical peeling

Chemical peeling is a technique used to improve the appearance of the skin on the face, neck, hands and of unsightly scars. By applying a chemical on the skin, we can remove dead, aged (exfoliating) cells and promote the development of new cells. Newly formed skin is finer and less wrinkled. You will have a luminous-looking complexion with faded fine wrinkles.

What chemical peeling is used for:

  • Post-acne / post-varicella (Chickenpox) scars
  • Fine wrinkles
  • hyperpigmentation
  • melasma
  • Efelids (freckles)
  • Post-traumatic scarring
  • Lesions caused by sun exposure
  • Loose skin
  • Improving the quality of the skin


  • You have taken Accutane in the past 6 months
  • You are pregnant or breastfeeding
  • You have active skin lesions (eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, rosacea, herpes, pustules)

What should I expect?

The skin grease will be removed with a solution specifically made for this procedure, followed by the application of the peeling solution with the help of a brush. The application of the solution will start from the forehead and will end at the chin. 2-3 layers of solution will be applied and left to take effect for up to 4 minutes. During the procedure you may feel slight stinging or local warmth. Finally, the skin is cleaned with water compresses and post-peeling cream is applied.

After the procedure the skin will be initially swollen, followed by desquamation in the first days after the peeling. Depending on the chemical agent used, after the procedure, you can experience itching, localized warmth, redness and mild edema in the treated area. All these symptoms will be treated by local applications (creams / masks) and if needed oral medication.

The complete healing takes between 3 to 14 days, during which period moisturizing creams and sunscreen creams will be used, their application continuing after healing.
