Chemical peels are non-invasive procedure that improves the appearance of the skin by exfoliating the uppermost layers of skin. Chemical peels can treat a range of different skin concerns including pigmentation, acne, scars, enlarged pores, and more.
A chemical peel is composed of an acid-based solution that is applied to the skin. The acids in the solution exfoliate the skin by chemically weakening the bonds that hold skin cells together, loosening the uppermost layers of the skin. This allows those layers to be removed easily, revealing healthy, smooth, new skin. This process also boosts the growth of new skin cells and encourage the production of collagen, which is important for firmer looking skin.
