Chemical peels work through the application of a safe, non-toxic chemical solution which acts to resurface and polish the skin by removing any damaged superficial layers of skin.
This is achieved by stimulating new skin cell growth in addition to collagen production to promote younger, smoother and fresher looking skin. During a chemical peel, a solution applied to the skin causes a chemical reaction that exfoliates and peels away the top layers of the skin, and stimulates regrowth of new cells, promoting a smoother younger-looking skin.
The depth of a chemical peel and type of acid solution used are determined during your consultation and will be based on the extent of wrinkles and skin damage, your skin type and your specific needs.
Skin peels are effective for the improvement of acne scarring, enlarged pores, hyperpigmentation, melasma, and fine lines and wrinkles on the face, neck, décolletage and hands A partial peel may be combined with other facial treatments such as Botulinum toxin or Dermal fillers to enhance results.Book a Consultation
