Chemical peels

What is that?

 

The  chemical peel  (from the English "to peel" = peel)  it consists in the application, on the face or on other skin areas, of chemical and acid substances that generate accelerated exfoliation and stimulation of the dermis, favoring cell renewal. The acids used during peeling penetrate deep into the dermis, stimulating the activity of fibroblasts in the production of collagen and glycosaminoglycans, molecules that maintain skin hydration.

What are the side effects?

 

The possible side effects of peeling are erythema or edema in the days following the treatment. However, these effects are absolutely reversible within 48-72 hours.
