What is a Chemical Peel?

Chemicals peels are an excellent, non-invasive alternative to achieve long-lasting results. They are solutions for all skin types that are more affordable than other techniques. It is a procedure, where a chemical agent of a defined strength is applied to the skin to cause a controlled destruction of the different layers of the skin. This is followed by a regeneration and a remodelling.


Chemical peels have different types of benefits such as the treatment of mild-acne, keratosis pilaris, superficial pigmented lesions, solar & senile lentigines, elastosis, acne scars and actinic keratosis.


They also have additional benefits like reducing visible skin imperfections, improving skin tone and texture, stimulating natural collagen production and promoting cells regeneration.


Chemical peels are efficient across all types of skin indications: acne-prone skin, pigment spots, signs of skin aging etc. It exists different types of chemical peels acting in different layers of the skin: from very superficial to deep peels.


Dermaceutic peels offer proven safe and efficient chemical peels for all skin types.


As all chemical peels, symptoms like redness, erythema, or burning sensation may occur, however they disappear in few hours later. These are well known and normal reactions of the skin after a chemical peel.
