Chemical peels use a chemical solution that speeds up the natural process of exfoliation resulting in skin regeneration and an enhancement of the patient’s appearance. The depth of the peel is dependent on the problem being treated. It can be used to treat from fine lines and superficial pigmentations to deep lines, seborrheic keratosis, acne scars, melasma, etc.

Before a chemical peel, you must prepare your skin (especially in medium and deep peels) following a treatment that involves applying some creams at home in order to ease the further penetration of the product and minimize side effects.

After the treatment, your skin will look healthier, improving its texture and elasticity and reducing ageing signs, spots, fine lines and small irregularities.

Possible complications:

  • Skin infections produced by viruses or bacteria.
  • Delayed healing and redness that can last for a few months.
  • Hypertrophic and keloid scars.
  • Hypopigmentation or hyperpigmentation.
