MECHANICS OF A ‘PEEL’

If you want a younger, tighter and fresher looking face, then chemical peels may be the solution for you. Chemical peels are popular because they produce good results with minimal downtime.

What is a skin peel?

skin peel is an effective skin care procedure that removes dead skin cells surface. Skin peels also can be formulated to do more than simple exfoliation. They can detoxify the skin, improve blood and lymph circulation and treat small imperfections including  fine lines and wrinkles, clogged pores, brown spots, freckles, irregular skin pigmentation and rough skin or scaly patches.

How does the peel work?

Dirt and dust can clog pores and glands, resulting in skin problems and an unhealthy appearance. Environmental factors can also damage your skin. Regular exfoliation and periodic use of skin peels can remove toxins and damaged skin Usually acids like salicylic, glycolic, lactic, TCA peels, or phenol are used.

During this procedure, your skin reacts to the chemicals and breaks up the top layers of skin. Then the chemical solution used peels the layers away. Chemical peels can be used anywhere on the body, but most commonly they are requested for the face.
