Chemical peels are able to give vitality and freshness to the skin by resurfacing and polishing the skin by removing the damaged superficial layers of the skin.
The correct type of chemical peel can be useful in the prevention and treatment of skin aging, to counteract and treat wrinkles, smooth and make the skin more luminous and even in tone.
Using the application of a safe and non toxic chemical solution, new skin cell growth is stimulated as well as collagen production via a chemical reaction that exfoliates the skin. The treatment is also effective in improving acne scarring, enlarged pores, hyperpigmentation as well as melasma.
The depth of the peel and type of chemical solution is discussed after a consultation where the doctor is able to thoroughly assess your skin concern, skin type and specific needs.
