Many skin problems occur due to an excessive build-up of dead skin cells, which make the skin thick and dull. Chemical skin peels can effectively treat aging skin, sun damage, acne scarring and reduce hyperpigmentation. As a result, the skin will appear smoother, healthier and plumper. There are several types of chemical peels available, each using different chemicals and fruit acids. After a consultation, it will be determined which peel will suit you best.
The chemical peel is a procedure that is used to enhance the skin appearance. In this treatment, a chemical solution is applied to the skin to remove the peels and wrinkles from it.

You may experience mild tingling of the skin, however, this is very short lived and once the peel is removed this will cease.
A glycolic peel gives your skin a great boost and is fantastic before you attend a special occasion or if your skin has become dry and dull in texture. Glycolic facials detox your skin leaving it soft and bright not red and flaky, unlike stronger peels.
The TCA peel works by causing sloughing or removal of the upper layers of skin. Normally these are the layers that are damaged by the elements such as sun, wind, and neglect. By removing the upper layers of skin, the overall skin texture is dramatically smoothed, superficial wrinkles are quickly eliminated and color irregularities are improved.
