Chemical peel

Chemical peel is one of my favourite treatments. It’s a method in which an acid (one or a mix) is applied to the skin to remove the top layers. This is why a peel can smooth the texture, brighten and improve the skin tone incredibly. It will also improve the appearance of pores, fine lines and eliminate pigmentation or acne. This treatment can be used on different parts of the body – face, neck, décolleté, back, hands, there are even special peels for the lip and genital area.

There are multiple types and strengths of CHP. Cosmetologists work with the weaker ones, only doctors (dermatologists and plastic surgeons) work with the stronger ones. Like any procedure, it has its fans, and those who should avoid it. Want to know more about this procedure? Read on!

Moles removal and fresh wound care

It is said that the scar is the surgeon’s calling card. Many factors influence wound healing after minor and major surgery. We, the surgeons, play an important role in the technique and material we use to close the wound. We need to be very gentle with the skin, so as not to bruise it unnecessarily, and at the same time efficient, so that the wound heals quietly after suturing with as little traction as possible.

When a mole is removed surgically, it is almost always going to leave a scar. But even this can look different – from barely visible and as small as a hair to wide, sometimes red and protruding. In this article, you will read about how a mole is removed and how best to take care of a fresh post-operative wound.
