Chemical peels are used to treat discolored skin, un-even skin tones, scars, skin dullness and hyperpigmentation, including Melasma. Peels will be suggested according to your condition and skin.
A chemical peel is a procedure in which a chemical solution is applied to the skin to remove the top layers. The skin that grows back is smoother. With a light or medium peel, you may need to undergo the procedure more than once to get the desired results.
Peels can used for:
- Lightening of the skin
- Whitening of the skin
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Sun damaged skin
- Acne scars
- Uneven skin tone or redness
How does a peel work?
A peel removes several layers of sun-damaged skin cells, leaving fresh skin which has a more even surface and color. It may stimulate new collagen and elastin production, improving the skin texture.
