Peeling is an outpatient procedure that consists of applying chemicals (glycolic acid, salicylic acid, mandelic acid, phenol, trichloroacetic acid) to remove skin imperfections: to close the  pores and remove blemishes and wrinkles, giving the skin a really rejuvenated appearance. There are three levels of application according to the needs of each patient: surface peeling, medium peeling and deep peeling.

This treatment renews the layers of the skin, reducing small wrinkles and improving the aspect of clogged and dilated pores. In addition, it reduces the secretion of fat, leaving skin smooth and luminous and with no fatty glare.

The improvement in the skin is noticeable within 1 – 2 days after milder peeling, and more than a week later for deeper peeling.



Inform the Doctor about the prior use of creams that contain acids (glycolic or retinoic) and on prior peeling procedures and implants.

If the patient has had herpes in the last two weeks or has recurring herpes they must inform the doctor, since peeling can cause this condition to flare up.

Prior to the peeling, the patient must avoid the use of UV rays and extensive exposure to the sun.

Inform the doctor about medicines you are taking and any diseases you have.

It is recommended that patients avoid cleaning their skin, using abrasive sponges and waxing in the week prior to the peeling procedure.

The recovery time is 1 to 2 weeks, and in some cases may cause slight redness in the face that lasts for up to 1 or 2 months. This redness can be easily concealed with make up.

Are there different chemical peeling processes?

Yes, there are different chemical peeling procedures, depending on the nature of the chemical agent and the concentration of the same. This allows peeling procedures to be deeper or more superficial.

How many days’ recovery is needed following a chemical peeling procedure?

If the chemical peeling (such as that performed using glycolic acid) is superficial the patient will be able to resume their normal activities on the same day, even if they are a bit red in the face.

For deeper peeling procedures, such as those that involve the use of trichloroacetic acid or phenol, one week of recovery is required.

What are the results of deep and superficial peeling procedures?

Superficial peels eliminate superficial stains and wrinkles while deeper peels act on a deeper level, eliminating deeper stains and wrinkles.

What is the best time of year to have a chemical peel done?

Superficial chemical peels can be performed at any time of year. However, deep chemical peels must be performed at times that there is no sun, given that exposure to the sun is counterproductive due to the fact that the skin could pigment further.

After a peeling procedure, is it necessary to use sunscreen?

Yes: after a peel you must use creams recommended by us for the revitalisation of the skin and for solar protection.
