“When I looked in the mirror after a week, I was suddenly years younger. Lovely soft skin without lines, pits and blemishes. At the beginning of the treatment I thought: what have I started, but now I can only cheer.

Frequently asked Questions

Does the chemical peeling hurt?

The liquid can be applied without local anesthesia. For the first 15 seconds it will give a burning sensation to the skin. This feeling will slowly disappear. Chemical peeling is often combined with another surgical procedure, such as a facelift. In that case, the treatment takes place under anesthesia.

What if the peeling does not have the desired result?

A chemical peel does not help against deep wrinkles or sagging skin due to aging. However, I may recommend a combined approach: first try a chemical peel before moving on to injectables or a facelift.

How often do I need to be treated?

The more superficial the irregularities, the fewer treatments are needed. A deep phenol peel often only requires one treatment. With a less deep peel, such as trichloroacetic acid, several treatments are sometimes required. During our consultation we will discuss what the most optimal treatment for your skin is.

When do you have an optimal result?

You should be aware that after a few days, flaking may occur. It may take several weeks before your skin looks younger and fresher. After a few months, you can see the final result. To get the best results, you will need to consistently use skin products several times a day for a few months. These are an integral part of the treatment.

Plastic surgeon

Doctor Xander R. Bakker

I am an experienced plastic surgeon, specialized in cosmetic surgery. I have been working as a plastic surgeon since 2005. For a long time, I have been working as an all-round plastic surgeon in several leading hospitals. Therefore, I have gained a lot of experience. Plastic surgery of the face has always had my special attention.

My work requires a personal and tailor-made approach. This is what makes my work so fascinating. Every time I ask myself: ‘Will I be able to bring a change, which makes the patient happier?’ It is always great when this is possible, but sometimes it also means saying ‘no’.

I focus completely on aesthetic plastic surgery. My areas of interest are the face, breast corrections, liposuction and lipofilling of the face and body. By attending many international conferences and courses I stay up-to-date. This way you can be assured that I always deliver state-of-the-art work.
