Chemical Peel is a cosmetic treatment that involves the careful exfoliation of the skin using an acid. The acid removes a uniform amount of damaged skin cells across the treatment area. When done appropriately, this can allow the skin to heal, with minimal scarring or color changes as a result of the treatment. Not only do chemical peels reveal a brighter, smoother and more refined complexion, they also improve the overall look and feel of the skin usually in just one treatment. Other benefits of receiving a chemical peel can include: Improving the skin's color, clarity, tone and texture.
