Chemical peeling treatment in the treatment of spots and scars on the face

Chemical peeling process; It is the controlled regeneration of a certain layer of damaged face or body skin using chemical acids. The history of chemical peeling dates back to ancient times.

Today, its modern application started in the 1880s and gained momentum after the 1960s.
