About Peels

Chemical Peel

What is Chemical Peeling?
Chemical peeling is an accelerated exfoliation of the skin induced by a chemical agent. The depth and results of the peel depend on the strength of the chemical agents used, the type of active ingredients incorporated into the peel, the skin type and the skill of the therapist.Superficial peeling agents cause an increased exfoliation of the outer layers of the skin resulting in a mild to moderate peeling.
