Skin lightening, Anti-acne, Luminescence.
What are chemical peels?
Chemical peels, normally an acid, are applied to prepared skin to eliminate surface layers of dead skin cells. We can treat the after-effects of acne, sun spots, and shallow wrinkles; we will also improve baggy eyes and give your face more sheen and luminescence.
The duration of a treatment will vary depending on the type of skin peel but it's usually somewhere between 10 and 30 minutes. During the peel you may feel a slight itching sensation that's usually easily tolerated.
Avoid exposure to sunlight or any UV ray treatments two weeks prior to the treatment.
The skin will peel for a few days after the treatment (often imperceptibly), giving way to a new layer of skin, albeit sometimes with a redness that will disappear progressively. Smoother, more hydrated skin is the result. Skin marks and blemishes are reduced or disappear and the skin is more luminescent.
After the treatment follow the recommendations of the doctor, apply sun cream to prevent hyperpigmentation and to keep the skin hydrated.
