A chemical peel is a procedure that involves applying a solution to the face that removes dead skin cells and helps stimulate the growth of new skin cells.
Chemical peels are used to tackle a number of different skin concerns such as, fine lines & wrinkles, acne and pigmentation
The process involves applying a specific solution chosen based on your skin concerns, onto your skin for a short duration of time. This creates a mild burning sensation as it works on penetrating the skin. After a few days, the skin will begin to peel and flake in places. After 5-7 days, the skin will be left feeling fresh and smooth
In most instances, a course of treatment is recommended for best results. Usually this is 4-6 treatments, 4 weeks apart. After this, its recommended to have a maintenance treatment every 6 months – 1 year.
