Chemical Peels – Controlled Chemical Microexfoliation
A complete system of chemical peels that combine a variety of acids. Different peels address individual skin pathologies and skincare needs. The active ingredients of each peel will address both upper and middle layers of the skin in order to achieve the optimum result; renewed, revitalized skin.
Men and women alike share a common desire to have healthy youthful skin. Chemical Peels reduce the appearance of fine lines, acne scaring, uneven skin pigmentation, large pore size, and sun-damaged skin. Chemical Peels are topically applied and they create a uniform and controlled shedding of several layers of the skin. Depending on the nature and depth of the peel, a significant number of layers can be exfoliated allowing new growth to be exposed, creating a fresh vibrant appearance. There are a variety of peels to choose from. Some peels will allow you to return to your activities and normal makeup routine the next day while other peels require additional time for the light flaking process to take place.
