Chemical Peel

What is a chemical peel?

Chemical peels are an important part of skin health. As an effective treatment option for most skin problems and concerns, they improve tone, texture, fine lines, wrinkles, acne breakouts and dark spots.

The post-peeling reality is a bright and healthy complexion.

    How does it work?

    Peeling is exfoliation. When your skin detaches after a treatment, your skin releases dead or damaged surface cells and exposes new healthy cells on the surface.

    This action is called cell turnover. Supporting the cell renewal process with chemical peels is what allows the skin to eliminate dead cells and bring new and fresh skin to the surface, with no signs of aging, sun damage, dirt and cell debris.

    The result is a radiant skin. You will not necessarily experience visible skinning. That does not mean that his treatment was ineffective. All people experience different levels of peeling, depending on the type of skin, resistance, type of exfoliation and the amount of layers applied.

    Others experience an exfoliation that is not visible. If you don’t peel, your skin is still exfoliating. In this case, exfoliation occurs at the cellular level that cannot be seen with the naked eye.
