What is a Chemical Peel?
A Chemical Peel is a noninvasive, exfoliating treatment that relies on fruit acids, herbs, and antioxidants to loosen the “glue” that binds dead cells to the skin’s surface. It increases the production of collagen, improves the appearance of Acne, Rosacea, Environmental Damage, Hyper-pigmentation, Fine Lines & Wrinkles and Acne Scarring. The result is smoother, tighter, more hydrated skin, ultimately leaving you with a clearer, more youthful complexion.
