Keeping your Skin Looking Great with a Chemical Peel
A chemical peel is a topical treatment to improve and smooth the texture of your facial skin, improve the appearance of superficial wrinkles and treat mild to moderate degrees of acne.As the name implies our expert nurse aesthetician applies a mild chemical solution that allows the dead skin to slough off.The superficial layers of skin peel off over 48-72 hours. The regenerated skin that replaces the sloughed off skin is smoother, less pigmented and wrinkled compared to the old skin.You can expect your skin to remain pink for 24 to 48 hours depending on the concentration of the peeling agent and the depth of the peel.The choice of which chemical agent depends upon the depth and degree of skin damage.
