What is a skin (chemical) peel?
A skin (chemical) peel is a beauty treatment that uses scientifically researched acids to gently strip away the dead skin cells. Like a physical exfoliant, a chemical peel works to remove the top and dull layer of skin. This leaves behind new skin cells and accelerates the skin cycle. As a result, your skin appears younger and healthier. A chemical peel works by applying the chemical solution to the skin. The skin then gently 'blisters' and then proceeds to peel off. Younger, smoother, and less wrinkled skin appears beneath. Chemical peels are popular on the face, neck, or hands.
How to choose a skin (chemical) peel?
The term chemical and peel seem quite daunting. You want to make sure to choose a treatment that is not too harsh on your skin and provides gentle exfoliation. Some people with sensitive skin may experience some redness and soreness with products. That is why it is a good idea to check with your dermatologist. They will be able to advise you on what products to use, as well as how to properly patch test. For professionally delivered chemical peels, you can also book an appointment with Wonderlab Now.
