Why Do I Need a Peel?
Our skin naturally exfoliates, gently shedding dead skin cells so subtly that most of us don’t even notice. However, as we age, this process tends to slow down, resulting in a dull complexion.
How Do Peels Work?
Chemical peels speed up the exfoliation process, encouraging cell turnover that leaves the skin looking fresh and healthy. The result is exfoliation after a treatment, often seen in the form of peeling or flaking that last a couple of days. (The exfoliation is not always visible)
Ingredients in the peel solution are also working to create new cells that function properly, not only visibly improving the skin, but correcting from within.

More is not always better.

A series of 3 or more treatments is usually recommended.
