WHAT IS A CHEMICAL PEEL?
There are a variety of conditions, including aging, in which injury to your skin occurs over time. When you are young the skin has a truly remarkable ability to regenerate and maintain a smooth and youthful appearance. However, over time this ability decreases and layers of injured skin accumulate. Since the time of the Pharaohs in Egypt people have known that the skin’s appearance can be improved by applying a variety of substances that cause the topmost layer or layers to shed. This process stimulates the underlying layers of the skin, including the collagen, to regenerate at a faster rate and to normalize and improve appearance. Over the course of centuries, even millennia, this art has been refined and has led to the modern techniques of chemical peels.
Chemical peels can be used to improve a large variety of skin problems including:
- fine lines and wrinkles
- hyperpigmentation (skin discoloration or age spots)
- enlarged pores
- light freckling
- mild scarring
- acne and acne scars
- rough, dry skin
- sun-damaged, dry skin
If you are looking for a chemical peel for acne scars – we do that too.
