The cells’ regeneration treatment
WHAT IS CHEMICAL PEELING?
The chemical peeling involves the application of specific solutions onto the skin, in order to cause exfoliation, removal of old, dead cells and stimulation of our skin to produce new, healthy cells, thus revitalizing the epidermis.
Chemical peels are used to treat various problems such as:
- Chemical peels are used to treat various problems such as:
- Reduction of wrinkles and fine lines
- Treatment of freckles, brown spots, melasma
- Acne treatment
- Treatment of acne scars
- Treatment of oily skin and dilated pores
- Stretch marks
Chemical peels can effectively treat facial skin imperfections, refreshing the skin and restoring the skin’s healthy colour and glow.
After its application, the outer layers of the skin are exfoliated, revealing a new skin with improved tone, texture and colour. Apart from rejuvenation of the face and neck, peelings are also used on the body and it is an effective treatment for stretch marks or for the brown spots on the dorsum of hands.
There are three main categories that differ in the depth of the peeling action and in which all the different types of peelings are classified:
- Superficial peels, which affect only the epidermis and have little or no recovery time.
- Medium peels, which reach the upper layer of dermis and have a recovery time of 3-5 days.
- Deep peels, which reach the deeper layers of dermis and are the peels with the longest recovery time (10-14 days), but also those with the most impressive results.
Acne peel is a mild peeling, which is specific for oily and acne skin, targeting the three main factors that cause acne. The Propionibacterium acnes (antimicrobial effect), the inflammation (antinflammatory effect) and the blocked pores (keratolytic effect). It contains salicylic and azelaic acid.
The treatment’s target is to fight active acne, as well as, to reduce the appearance of new outbreaks and to maintain a good control. It has minimal recovery time and most important it controls the sebum production and the oily appearance of the skin. The results are immediate and visible from the very first treatment.
- WHITE PEEL
The results of White peel are visible within a few days. The skin becomes brighter, with an impressive glow, while freckles and brown spots are being reduced. This special peel can be used for treating brown spots and melasma and it also inhibits its recurrence, after successful treatment. It blocks the enzyme tyrosinase, which is responsible for melanin production and a maintenance protocol is recommended every 3 months, for a successful treatment of melasma.
- GLOW PEEL
It is a combination of glycolic acid solutions with a concentration of 20% – 60%. This peel has the ability to cause rapid and deep cell regeneration, which results in a youthful glow. The choice of concentration, the number of sessions and the duration of treatments are parameters, which are determined by the doctor, who needs to be a specialist in peels, in order to give you a successful and effective treatment. This peel is a mild peeling, which can be done regularly, since it has a minimum recovery time. Moreover, the antioxidant effect of vitamin C, which is part of this special peeling, is refreshing the skin and gives an incredible glow to it.

How often can chemical peels be repeated?
Superficial peels can be repeated more often (once or twice per month, for a few months), as they have minimum recovery time. That way the patient can maintain their good results. The medium and the deeper peels are administered at longer intervals, because they have longer recovery time, but their effects also last longer.
Depending on what we want to achieve or the skin problem we treat, chemical peelings can be combined with other treatments, such as Lasers, BTX and Hyaluronic acid, in order to offer an excellent result that lasts longer.
Are chemical peels suitable for everyone?
Chemical peels, are not recommended for people suffering from skin infections or an active skin disease. Chemical peels, are also not suitable for women who are pregnant or breast-feeding, people with psoriasis, dermatitis or eczema, as well as people who are on isotretinoin therapy.
Is skin preparation necessary before a chemical peeling?
Preparation is not necessary in all chemical peelings e.g. for a superficial peel is not needed at all. Nevertheless, preparation provides better results in medium peels and is always necessary in deep peels. In Derm & Plastic Surgery Clinic, we select personalized skin preparation protocols, depending on the type of skin and the needs of each patient.
Which treatments can be combined with chemical peelings?
Peelings are excellently combined with other treatments such as:
- Hyaluronic acid
- Facial Mesotherapy
- Fractional Laser, also known as LaserPeel
What is the ideal period for a peeling?
The best period for peeling treatment is in autumn and winter time, so there is no risk of exposure to sunlight. Sun exposure avoidance and use of sunscreen with high SPF factor are essential after treatment. The only exception is the Summer Peels, which can be applied safely during the summer months, giving a healthy glow to our skin.
Is the treatment painless and how long does it take?
This is a very simple process that does not last for more than 15 minutes. Depending on the solution that is used, one feels a slight tingling when the solution is applied. Immediately after the peeling, a mild redness is observed and a mild or deeper exfoliation will occur, during the next few days, depending on the type of the chemical peeling used.
How long do the results last and how many sessions will I need?
Depending on the type of chemical peel we use, you can have from 2 to 6 sessions per year. The results are very good, as long as one follows the doctor’s instructions after peeling.
What should I do after treatment?
Since each type of peeling treatment, has different post treatment requirements, it is important that you follow the advice given by our dermatologists. You should avoid sun exposure and apply the appropriate product that will be recommended to you, for cell regeneration, hydration and sun protection.
