What is a Chemical Peel?
A chemical peel is a delicate yet effective chemical mask that is placed on your skin which will eventually be safely exfoliated to leave you with youthful smooth skin. The peel will be removing dead skin cells, small scars, dark spots, fine lines that naturally occur due to aging, hormone, and sun exposure. Your skin is as unique as you are which is why we have three types of chemical peels to fit your skin needs.
Benefits a Chemical Peel Provides
If you deal with acne, a chemical peel will help treat it. Since a chemical peel exfoliates deep into the skin the peel penetrates deep to treat the problem areas. Peels help minimize pores and reduce the appearance of visible pores. It can help erase the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and help fade discoloration. One main benefit of a chemical peel is that it helps soothe any scarring that you may have, along with balancing any texture you may have, to smooth the skin.
