Chemical peels are a controlled procedure designed to exfoliate the outer layers of the skin and each of our formulas act differently in a scientific way at treating skin conditions and inducing chemical exfoliation. The process of the chemical exfoliation is designed to stimulate fibroblasts to produce collagen and elastin in the dermis. Chemical peels oxygenate the skin improving hydration, ageing, wrinkles and overall appearance. Chemical peels even out skin tone reducing skin imperfections, close dilated pores and increase brightness, reduce skin conditions such as pigmentation, acne and improve the appearance of acne scars and sun damage.
