Acne, fine lines and wrinkled, blemished, unevenly pigmented or sun damaged skin can be visibly improved through a chemical peel. Through the process, skin becomes more elastic and appears more youthful.
Through the removal of the outer layer of the skin, a new layer is unveiled. There are various types of chemical peels and the results are immediate.
A chemical peel involves the professional application of a chemical solution to the skin. The chemical solution causes the skin to dry out and reveals a new layer of skin that is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin. While the basic chemical peels require no anaesthetics or downtime afterwards, some procedures may require anaesthetics to be administered and up to six days of downtime.
