Chemical peels safely remove or exfoliate the top layer of dead skin allowing new, more youthful, healthy skin to show through. While the skin typically sheds old, dull dead skin cells every 28 days, this process slows down with prolonged sun exposure and aging. Chemical peels cause this natural cell turnover process to speed up, helping to stimulate the growth of new collagen, or the skin-firming protein that acts like a scaffold for the skin. The speed or depth of cell turnover is determined by the concentration of the peel and the amount of time it’s left on skin. Chemical peels are an excellent way to renew surface cell turnover, leaving a bright and tight finish to the skin. They can truly be good for anyone. We treat patients dealing with acne, rosacea, melasma and more. Chemical peels are great for the face and the body!
