Medical Peels

From 110,-

At Body & Face Clinic, we use a wide range of peels to treat different skin problems. They can be done alone or combined with other cosmetic procedures. And they can be done at different depths, from light to deep.

What are Medical peels?


Medical peels are made from liquids, such as glycolic acid, fruit acid, trichloroacetic acid, jessner or salicylic acid. There are a variety of peels, from superficial, medium to deep peels.

A medical peel causes the top layer of the skin to loosen, stimulating the skin to produce new cells. It causes the skin to renew itself faster, improving skin texture, reducing fine lines and evening out skin colour, resulting in a fresh young appearance of the skin.

Medical peeling suits any skin type, from oily to sensitive skin. The intensity and type of peeling are tailored to the needs of the skin and your personal requirements.

What to consider before treatment

  • If you suffer from an active cold sore, you should not be treated and should wait until the cold sore has completely healed.
  • Botox and/or filler treatments may be performed up to two weeks before treatment.
  • Avoid facial treatments two to four weeks before treatment, such as strong chemical peels, micro-needling and CO2 laser
  • In case of symptoms such as fever or flu, you will not be treated.
  • The treatment cannot be performed if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.


How does the treatment work?


The skin is thoroughly cleansed and disinfected. After that, the peel suitable for your skin is applied. You might feel stinging and warmth while the chemical solution is on your skin. Depending on the strength of the peeling, this sensation may vary. After a few minutes, a neutralizing solution will be applied, and the peel will be washed off your skin. A soothing mask is used to calm the skin.

Depending on the indication and intensity of the peel, several treatments are often required to achieve visible results. Approximately 3-5 treatments at 4-week intervals are recommended.


Possible skin reaction after treatment


Immediately after treatment, the skin is red, and swelling may occur. The skin may also feel tight. Redness usually disappears within 24-72 hours. Healing is accompanied by light scaling and scabs. However, this varies from skin to skin. The skin recovers within 3-10 days.




  • For the first 24 hours after treatment, do not do anything to the skin, do not wash or apply cream unless otherwise advised.
  • For the first 48 hours, you should avoid heat sources such as saunas, swimming pools and intense exercise.
  • You should not wear makeup for the first 48 hours after treatment. Medical makeup, such as Oxygenetix may be allowed if necessary.
  • Sleep on a clean pillowcase every other day.
  • Do not use scrubs and peels for the first two weeks after treatment.
  • For the first three to seven days, do not use intensive, exfoliating products with acids such as glycolic acid and salicylic acid; do not use retinol and hydroquinone.
  • You should not scratch/pull at the scabs and/or peels.
  • After treatment, it is essential to care for the skin with a restorative cream, such as Alhydran, to promote healing and allow the skin to heal more beautifully. Alhydran can be applied two to three times daily and can be purchased at the clinic.
  • During the treatment process, it is important to avoid direct sunlight on the skin and tanning beds. It is essential to use daily sun protection with at least SPF50.
