What is a Chemical Peel?

Chemical peels are designed to remove the top most layer of sun damaged skin. By doing this patients will see a more evenly textured, fresh , and better colored skin tone. Chemical Peels and deep exfoliation have also been shown to stimulate collagen which is the best effect of anti-aging. Certain types of peels can only be done by a physician, whereas most general peels can be done by your esthetician.
