Chemical Peels

What are Chemical Peels?

A chemical peel is a technique used to improve the appearance of the skin and diminish the signs of aging. A chemical solution is applied to the skin which causes it to exfoliate and eventually peel off. The new, regenerated skin is usually smoother with fewer lines and wrinkles, a more even skin color, and a brighter complexion. Downtime can vary depending on which treatment is done.

  • Superficial Exfolation
  • GREAT FOR SENSITIVE SKIN
