At our aesthetic clinic, we offer chemical peel treatments, a way to improve the appearance and texture of your skin. Chemical peels work by removing the outer layer of skin, revealing fresh, new skin underneath. The treatment can be customized to address a variety of skin concerns, including fine lines, wrinkles, acne, sun damage, and more.
A chemical peel is a cosmetic treatment that uses a chemical solution to exfoliate the skin and reveal fresh, new skin underneath. The solution is applied to the skin and allowed to sit for a few minutes before being washed off. As the solution is washed off, it takes the outer layer of skin with it, revealing smoother, brighter, and more youthful-looking skin.
There are several types of chemical peels available, ranging from mild to deep. Mild peels are generally well-tolerated and require little to no downtime, while deep peels may require several days of recovery time.
How it works
Chemical peels work by removing the outer layer of skin, which is composed of dead skin cells, dirt, oil, and other debris. By removing this layer, chemical peels can help to improve the appearance and texture of your skin, as well as reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne, and other skin concerns.
Chemical peels can be customized to meet the unique needs of each patient. We offer a variety of chemical peel solutions, ranging from mild to deep, to help our patients achieve their desired results.
