It is a technique used to improve the appearance of the skin on the face, neck, hands or décolleté. A chemical solution is applied to the skin that causes it to exfoliate and eventually peel off. The new, regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin.
Chemical solutions are carefully applied to your skin which causes the top layer to separate or peel over several days. It is important to never peel the skin as this may lead to hyperpigmentation and scarring.
Dramatic results with virtually no pain, no skin preparation and little downtime. It will improve the tone, texture and clarity of the skin. It reduces or eliminates age spots, freckles, and hyperpigmentation, including melasma. The peel helps with wrinkle reduction; clears acne skin conditions; reduces or eliminates acne scars.
In response to the chemical peel, the body produces new collagen, for firmer, more youthful skin.
Chemical peels are very closely supervised so they are considered quite safe and can be used on all skin types.
Chemical peels are not covered by insurance.
