Chemical peels, what are they and how to use them

Chemical peels, what are they and how to use them 

A chemical peel is a skin-resurfacing procedure. Peels are one of the most effective ways to address fine lines, wrinkles, breakouts, and hyperpigmentation. Peels remove outer layers of the epidermis, enhancing cell turnover and renewal which improves the skin’s texture and appearance. 

You can purchase retail peels to do yourself at home which are less invasive but still deliver great skin results or you can book in for a professional treatment peel in a skin centre with a qualified skin therapist who can have a in depth look at your skin, carry out a full consultation and choose the best peel for your skin. When having a peel treatment in a skin centre it will be a more intensive peel and depending on your skin concern and results you are wanting your professional skin therapist may recommend a course of treatments.
