Peeling

Information

It is an aesthetic medicine treatment to smooth and improve the skin. Chemical peeling of the face is a treatment that stimulates exfoliation and subsequent skin turnover. Through the removal of dead cells from the stratum corneum an acceleration of the cell turnover that already occurs normally in the dermis is achieved. This causes an inflammation that activates the production of collagen and elastin. Peelings can be superficial or deep.
