Peeling Tunisia: what is a facial peeling?
Peeling is a technique of aesthetic medicine that allows the skin of the face to be rid of the damaged layer. It involves applying a chemical solution (acid) to the surface of the face so that it acts as a facial exfoliant and rids the skin of dead cells.
The peel also stimulates cell renewal, which helps to smooth out wrinkles, reduce blemishes, erase scars and reduce skin imperfections.
There are three types of peels:
- The superficial peel. As its name suggests, the action of the superficial peel is superficial and therefore light. Its main purpose is to reduce small imperfections, to tighten the pores and to clarify the complexion.
- The medium peel or TCA has a more important and deeper action. It is mainly aimed at reducing brown spots and smoothing out the first wrinkles.
- The deep peel is characterised by a more intense action, the aim of which is to stimulate the production of collagen, which enables deep wrinkles on the face to be treated.

Facial peeling in Tunisia: what you need to know before you start
The first step is a consultation with the doctor so that he or she can assess the characteristics of your skin and know your expectations. This allows him to direct you towards the right type of peeling.
The doctor must also check that you have no contraindications to peeling (skin diseases, lymphatic system disorders, heart disease, etc.).
The doctor must also inform you of the risks, duration and cost of the procedure.
How does a peeling session take place in Tunisia?
This is done with fruit acids. The face is covered for a few minutes during which you will feel a sharp tingling sensation under the exfoliating effect of the acids.
The medium peeling:
This is done with trichloroacetic acid (TCA) which acts on the surface layer of the skin to erase the lesions. An anaesthetic cream must be applied before the start of the session to avoid the sensations of heat and burns that this type of peel can cause.
Deep peeling :
This is done with phenol and requires a general anaesthetic, and sometimes even hospitalisation. Due to the intensity of the treatment and the risk of depigmentation that it can cause, the deep peel is not recommended for darker skin types.
Post-operative follow-up of facial peeling in Tunisia
Whatever the type of peel chosen, it is imperative to avoid any exposure to the sun before and after the treatment.
Following a superficial peel, the skin becomes pink and peels during the first few days. A moisturising cream will be prescribed to soothe your skin.
Following a medium peel, the skin becomes a little brownish during the first few days and healing treatments are prescribed.
Following a deep peel, a convalescence period is necessary (10 to 15 days) to allow the skin to heal.
