What is a Chemical Peel?
Chemical Peels are used to improve the skin by working deep within the skin’s epidermis. A chemical solution is applied which causes the skin to exfoliate and after a few days the top layer will peel away revealing your new rejuvenated skin. You’ll see great results with new skin that’s smoother and firmer than before.
What is a Chemical Peel good for?
The main purpose of a Chemical Peel is to remove the top layers of the skin to help rejuvenate and strengthen. These treatments are good for many skin concerns including:
- Preventive or corrective age management - Deep set fine lines and wrinkles
- Moderate to severe acne - Persistent spots, cystic acne, hormonal breakouts, post-acne scarring, enlarged pores, excess oils
- Pigmentation - Sun damage, age spots, melasma, hyperpigmentation, hyperkeratosis/melasma, scarring
- Dull - Tired, neglected skin
