Chemical peels use a chemical solution to remove the top layers of damaged skin. The new cells form tighter, younger looking skin. Peels can be used to help restore wrinkled, sun damaged or blemished skin. Due to the range of chemicals used, a free consultation with our esthetician is suggested for selecting the optimal peel.
