Chemical Peels

Chemical Peel

A chemical peel is recommended to restore the youthful glow, and to firm and tone the skin. Glycolic Acid peel is the most popular natural skin peeling treatment that helps dissolve and exfoliate dead skin cells. As the new fresh skin cells appear, the skin is renewed, brighter and smoother. The superficial pigmentation is reduced, pale and tired skin is regenerated. In addition, this type of treatment promotes the natural collagen and elastin production, helping skin appear firmer and tighter. Benefits of the Chemical Peel:
