What are chemical peels?
Over time, the skin is compromised by sun damage, the elements, toxins in the environment, and the aging process. Normal methods of cleansing and exfoliating don’t always work when it comes to revitalizing the complexion because the buildup of dirt, oil, and debris is too immense. That is where a chemical peel steps in. Chemical peels can help remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells, reduce blemishes, and improve luminosity. Each peel can be customized; there are mild, moderate, and intense level peels to choose from made with alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs), beta-hydroxy acids (BHAs), and trichloroacetic acid (TCA). Chemical peels can be instrumental in combating wrinkles, lines, poor skin texture, enlarged pores, acne, hyperpigmentation, and more. While some chemical peels may seem gentle enough to be performed by anyone, only a licensed professional must conduct your procedure to ensure a safe, successful result.
