Chemical peels are chemical products that are applied to the skin with the intention of removing superficial layer of skin and replacing it with healthy skin,hence markedly improving the appearance of the skin.
The process starts by applying the chemical to the skin in our clinic . The patient is sent home and during the course of the following few days the patient will peel. Once the peeling is over the rejuvenated skin is much smoother with less wrinkles and superficial pigments.
- The procedure usually lasts 30 to 45 minutes
- Is painless
- Minimal side effects
- No downtime for most treatments
