Peel Back a New You
While the word, “peel” might make you nervous there is no need to worry. Nothing actually peels off during this process. A chemical peel works by dissolving the upper layers of the skin, which in turn stimulates the body’s healing response, causing new tissue to emerge. This type of skin regeneration induces collagen growth and provides a general resurfacing of the face, which is smoother and has improved texture.
