Chemical peels are exfoliation treatments which exfoliate and remove dead skin in order to smooth out upper layers of the skin. Chemical peels have been performed in the U.S. for many years and are very common amongst those who have skin concerns. The most common type of chemical peels are the “lunch time” superficial peels which requires no down-time.
Chemical peels can effectively improve:
• Blackheads and Whiteheads
• Fine lines
• Rough skin texture
• Uneven skin tone
• Dull skin
Chemical Peel Acids may consist of lactic acid, salicylate acid or Glycolic acid which are available in various concentrations. The intensity level will vary depending on your particular skin concern. A Chemical peel may be combined with laser skin treatments for even better results.
