Men and women alike share a common desire to have healthy, youthful skin. Exposure to the sun, to the elements, and other detrimental lifestyle habits all contribute to the appearance of our skin today. Chemical peels have become very popular with those who are unhappy with acne scarring, sun-damaged skin, age spots, freckles, face lines, rough skin and uneven pigmentation. Chemical peels are not limited to the face and can be performed on the neck, chest, hands, arms, shoulders and legs - just about anywhere!
What is a Chemical Peel?
Chemical peels are topically applied acids that aid in the restoration and rejuvenation of the skin's surface. They create an even and controlled shedding of several layers of the skin. Depending on the type and depth of the peel, few or many layers can be shed allowing new layers to be exposed and creating a fresh new appearance.
What are the benefits of a Chemical Peel?
Chemical peels can enhance your appearance by reducing blotchy and uneven pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, freckling, age spots, sun-damaged skin, and acne scars in a relatively short period of time. Chemical peels stimulate the production of new cells.
