It is the most powerful of the chemical facial peels. Its efficacy gives it a 'face-lift' effect. The completely stable formula has been around since 1992 and consists of 12 different products including phenic acid, resorcinol, salicylic acid and croton oil.

Its application causes de-epidermization followed by powerful stimulation of the dermis which allows a better-quality, new and even epidermis to be regenerated, and leads to significant production of elastin and collagen.

The product only takes one hour to apply, under mild sedation, causing a sharp but brief pain, then a mask is applied. It is changed 24 hours later and replaced by another mask made with powder. This second mask will begin to crack open after 6 days, revealing skin that is remarkably rejuvenated, but that will still be very red and that will require specific protective make-up for several months.


This is indicated for slackening of the surface of the skin, withering of the skin due to the sun, even when this withering is very pronounced, pigment stains and scars. The ideal types of skin for this procedure are: thin, white skin, which is very wrinkled and stained, for patients between 40 and 80 years old.
It is not suitable for skin that is thick, with little staining, very darker skins and skins with active outbreaks of acne and those with serious diseases, cardiac or renal in nature.


The application of EXOPEEL® requires roughly ten days of social isolation after which the patient appears 10 to 15 years younger.
The full result can really be appreciated 3 months later and it is generally impressive.

The presence of this mask and the inevitable isolation that it demands of the patient means that this procedure is suitable for highly motivated patients only. The results will, however, meet their hopes and expectations.

The side effects are very rare: pigmentation, rare pigmentation 'rebound', persistant redness that can be treated with vascular laser treatment, and exuberant scars (keloids). Indeed, unlike the laser, EXOPEEL® does not burn the skin.

The final look of the renewed skin is much more velvety and natural, while the skin produced by the laserappears too smooth, almost like a 'plastic-coating'
