Chemical peel is solution, a type of acid derived from fruit or botanical source, applied to the skin surface with anti-aging, skin regenerating, texture and tone improving purposes. It exfoliates the skin through removing outer layer and helping to “boost” the cell renewal process. Also, peel ingredients have anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and anti-bacterial properties to help clear break outs and reduce redness.
The peel depth is defined by the type and strength of acid. Most of them work on very superficial layer of skin.
After care with moisturizer and sun block are important. Choice of a good skin care regime will enhance the chemical peel results and will be discussed during face-to-face consultation with your practitioner.
