WHAT IS A CHEMICAL PEEL?
A professionally applied chemical peel is a treatment done to exfoliate dead skin cells to help healthy skin cells rise to the surface. Chemical Peels allow deeper layers of fresh and untouched skin to be revealed. The result of regular treatments can even skin tone, clear acne, improve the appearance of aging skin and make dull complexions glow.
