About our treatment

Improvement of the skin

A skin in its best condition is smooth, fine in texture and radiates. This is often not the case. If you want to maintain your skin well, there is a regular peeling. The effect of a peel is actually a controlled skin damage to the skin through which it is activated, self-repaired and in a better condition than before the treatment. Your skin cells are replaced more quickly for new skin cells.

Regular professional peeling (how often depends on the composition of the peeling and the condition of the skin) ensures that your skin is and remains in top condition.

Our skin specialists are highly trained to use peels and products safely and effectively. By means of a thorough skin analysis we know exactly which peeling is best for your skin.
This depends on the peeling. Most chemical peels are mild and cause a light burning or puffy feeling. With deeper wrinkles, damage caused by acne or the sun, a stronger peeling is required, which gives a more burning sensation for a few minutes. Strong peelings are not necessary for most skin types. The peelings at KNAP give immediate results for most people with little discomfort.

Yes, but only if you use a protection every day. Sunbathing increases the risk of skin cancer and accelerates the aging of the skin. At least 1 week prior to a peel and immediately after the peel if the skin is still tingling, the sun should be avoided for weeks. We recommend using the SPF products and avoiding exposure to the sun to prevent further discolouration of the skin.

No, our peels remove dead skin cells from the surface, are moisturizing and make the skin appear fuller and thicker. The use of products with vitamin C, retinoids and peptides, plus the regular use of daily care products and the interplay between the production of collagen and elastin make your skin stronger.

At KNAP we offer several possibilities to keep rosacea under control. Our mild TCA and lactic acid products are excellent for reducing rosacea. Our peels fight bacteria, reduce inflammation and help healthy skin. Rosacea is best kept under control by a combination of treatments in our institute, along with using our daily care products and a healthy lifestyle.


  • If you use the specially designated daily care products prior to a peel, this gives a better result and reduces the risk of complications.
  • If you are breast-feeding, are pregnant or want to become pregnant, we advise you not to undergo peeling.
  • Do not go under the sun bed at least two weeks before the treatment. The advice is not to do this at all to prevent skin cancer and rapid skin aging.
  • Do not walk in the bright sun at least 10 days before the peeling.
  • If you are taking medicines such as Roaccutane, Retin-A, Renova, Differin, Tazorac, Avage, Epiduo, or Ziana prescribed by a dermatologist or products with a high percentage of AHA and BHA, stop in consultation with your doctor or our skin experts. the use.
  • It is not always predictable whether you will start to feel bad after a peel. During 3 to 5 days, your skin may be slightly bored in certain areas. Also, the skin can be red for up to 12 hours after the peeling.
  • To prevent any irritation after peeling, do not use products containing AHA for at least a week.
  • If you are using prescribed medicines via the skin doctor such as Retin-A, Renova, Differin, Tazorac, Avage, EpiDuo or Ziana, we advise you to stop taking them in consultation with your doctor for five days after the peeling.
  • Do not go under the sun bed at least 2 weeks after the peeling. The advice is not to do this at all to prevent skin cancer and faster aging of the skin.
  • Avoid exposure to sunlight and excessive heat. Use products from our range of UV protection, SPF 50, SPF 45 or SPF 30. We advise you to find a suitable product for your skin.
  • As with all peels, we recommend that you do not use make-up on the day of treatment so that the skin can settle and recover. If it really can not be otherwise, wait at least 15 minutes before applying the make-up.
  • To reduce peeling and redness and for optimal results, we recommend using a special cream for 3-5 days after peeling.
  • Do not pull off the loose skin. This may discolour the skin.
  • Do not allow electrical epilation, resins or other epilation in the face for at least 5 days after the peeling.
  • If the skin feels tight, use the special creams supplied by us for this, for optimal moisture absorption.
