The medical chemical peel is a method of skin regeneration that is caused by agents that literally exfoliate and peel the skin, causing a renewal of it in order to improve its appearance. Depending on the peeling formula, the effect that is produced can affect different levels of the skin.
It is important that this procedure is carried out by a qualified professional, since if it is not carried out properly it could cause severe irritations and with effects very different from those desired. The frequency with which we can do peels depends mainly on the type of skin. For that reason, a professional should prescribe and perform chemical peels.
In what areas can they be applied ?
Its application is the face, neck, neckline and hands, although on certain occasions we also apply it for some body treatment. Depending on the characteristics of the patient’s skin and the treatment to be performed, the appropriate peeling will be chosen for each one in a personalized way.
Its effects are multiple: reduction of comedones, enlarged pores, post-inflammatory acne, dermal marks, different types of blemishes and facial rejuvenation.
Why do we love scrubs?

Are there different Medical Peels ?
Depending on the characteristics of the skin of each patient and the treatment to be carried out, we choose the most suitable type of peeling in each case.
When choosing the peel, the active ingredient will change since we have specific chemical peels for spots, oil, enlarged pores or even wrinkles. On the other hand we have the concentration of the peeling with which we can classify the peeling as superficial, medium or deep according to the depth that it will reach in our skin
When are the results observed ?
The results will vary from one treatment to another, since we do want to treat spots, we will need to carry out several sessions to achieve our objective, but in general the results are appreciated from the first session.
