Peelings | Dr Marco Moraci


What's this?

Peeling: it is an aesthetic medicine treatment to smooth and improve the skin.

The chemical peeling of the face is a treatment that stimulates exfoliation and the consequent renewal of the skin. Through the removal of dead cells from the stratum corneum, we obtain an acceleration of the cell turnover which already normally takes place in the dermis. This causes inflammation which activates the production of collagen and elastin. Peels can be superficial or deep.
