Medical peeling is a highly effective procedure that should not be confused with peeling at home or at the cosmetician’s. The acids used are much more concentrated and effective. The skin therefore has to get used to the fruit acids step by step. After several weeks of pre-treatment at home, we start with a 10-20% solution – depending on the skin type and procedure – and increase weekly by 10% to about 50-70%. During the treatment itself, the skin is first degreased and cleaned. Then the fruit acid is applied. After the prescribed exposure time, the fruit acid is washed off or neutralized. During and after the treatment the skin may burn and feel hot. This feeling disappears after the neutralization of the acids. After hours or days, the skin peels more or less strongly, which lasts for several days.
