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.
