A chemical peel is a skin-resurfacing procedure in which a chemical solution is applied to the skin to remove the top layers. The skin that grows back after is smoother, brighter & younger looking!
Peels target a full range of skin concerns:
blemishes, oily skin, fine lines & wrinkles, dryness & pigmentation.
Some people are worried about the word "chemical" because it makes the treatment sound painful.
The best way to describe how a peel feels is spicy or warm. There is a handheld fan to use to help with the discomfort as well.
