Chemical Peels

Chemical face peels are non-invasive cosmetic procedures that involve applying a chemical solution to the skin's surface. This solution exfoliates the outermost layer of dead and damaged skin cells, encouraging cellular turnover and collagen production. As a result, the skin appears rejuvenated, with reduced fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and improved texture and tone.

During a chemical face peel, a customised solution is carefully applied to the targeted areas. The specific formula and strength of the chemical peel will depend on individual skin concerns and treatment goals.

The solution works to dissolve the top layer of the skin, which subsequently peels off, revealing the fresher, smoother skin beneath. The depth of the peel can vary, ranging from superficial to deep, depending on the desired results and skin condition.
