What is Chemical Peel?
A chemical peel is a solution consisting of exfoliating agents. When applied on your skin, the rough upper layer of the skin will be gently removed.
How does Chemical Peel work?
As the chemical peel works on your skin, the upper layer of your skin is removed, giving away to a new layer of skin right underneath. This promotes the rejuvenation of your new skin cells, tightening and smoothing your skin in the process.
Aside from firmer and smoother skin, you can also expect to clear off some blemishes such as acne or acne scars, pigmentation, melasma and age spots. Your skin tightening would also mean that you’re removing the fine lines forming wrinkles on your skin for a radiant and youthful complexion.
There are various types of chemical peels to cater to different skin types, strength levels and problems. Superficial and medium peels cater to skin surface problems, such as your skin texture, pigmentation and wrinkles. Deep peels tackle more severe conditions, including acne and acne scars.
