What is a Chemical Peel?

A skin peel is a resurfacing treatment designed to improve and enhance the skin. Also known as a face peel, a skin peel is a means of chemically exfoliating the skin by breaking down the intercellular glue that holds together dead skin cells and in turn causing cell turnover bringing new skin to the surface at a faster rate. An increasingly popular treatment with our clients, due to results, effectiveness and minimum recovery time.
