Welcome to the homepage of the International Peeling Society (IPS). The IPS was founded in 2012 by an international group of physicians dedicated to the field of chemical peels.

The society targets to teach and promote the methods and applications of chemical peels for both medical and esthetic purposes. Among the goals of the society are the development of clinical guidelines for better and safer use of peels, the setting of appropriate quality standards and the initiation and support of basic and clinical research in this field.

Please take a look at our goals and activities on our homepage.


It´s a pleasure to introduce our new president Dr. Peter Rullan. He was elected during the general assembly at the IMCAS in Paris. Dr. Sahar Foad Ghannam was elected as new Vice-President. We thank Prof. Claudia Borelli for her fantastic work during his presidency in 2017.
