are an important part of skin health. As we age, the rate that our cells naturally exfoliate slows down dramatically which results in a dull complexion and fine lines and wrinkles appear worse. Although the term “chemical peel” sounds daunting, a peel is a very effective treatment option for most skin types and concerns. Peels help to improve skin tone, texture, fine lines, wrinkles, breakouts, and dark spots (hyperpigmentation). When your skin peels or flakes after a treatment your skin is shedding dead or damaged surface cells and revealing new, healthy skin cells on the surface. This action is called cell turnover. Supporting the cell turnover process with chemical peels is what allows the skin to shed dead cells and bring new, fresh skin to the surface, free of signs of aging, sun damage, dirt and debris. The result is glowing skin.
