Chemical Peels:

A  Peel involves the application of acid solution to remove the dead skin cells of the face, neck, décolleté and hands. A Peels removes several layers of sun damaged and aged cells to reveal fresh skin with a more even skin tone. Depending on the depth, freckles, age spots and melasma may be lightened and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles may be reduced. Acne skins greatly benefit from peels as the acid softens and dissolves black heads making extractions easier.
