Chemical Peel

What it is

A Chemical Peel is an acidic gel made up of naturally occuring acids such as alphahydroxy acid (AHA), beta hydroxy acid (BHA), glycolic or salicylic acid combined with other skincare ingredients. Chemical peels are often used in combination with microneedling in order to resurface and improve the health of the skin.

 

How it works

The chemical peel is applied to the skin to resurface the top layer of the skin in order to promote the growth of new skin cells. The regenerated skin is smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin, creating a fresh-faced glow.

Patients who seek to improve skin texture and radiance, fading of brown spots, acne treatment, brighter complexion, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and refined pores would be the ideal candidates for this treatment.
