The chemical Peeling is the strongest and fastest form of skin renewal in a single session. It is carried out by applying a diluted acidic solution to the face which subsequently results in destruction of skin keratinocytes in just a few minutes. Because of the redness and peeling following the treatment, the person should avoid sun exposure for about 7 days, until complete regeneration of the skin occurs. This treatment is suitable for anti-aging, for skin with photo-aging, and for old acne scars.
The Chemical Peeling may also be applied to body parts that due to chronic exposure to solar radiation are covered by multiple precancerous lesions e.g. the forearms, hands, the scalp of people with multiple actinic keratoses.
