A chemical peel is an effective treatment to exfoliate dead skin cell layers, and ultimately stimulate the regrowth of healthy skin in a controlled manner.
Dead skin cells accumulate on the surface of the skin as we age, and cleansing alone may not be sufficient to remove them.
A chemical peel will effectively break down this adhesive build-up that stays on the surface of the skin. The peel sheds the outer layers of dead skin and stimulates new cellular growth. Patients can expect improvements in the clarity and softness of skin, with a reduction in the appearance of rough, dry skin.
Chemical peels are particularly effective in treating oily and acne-prone skin – breaking down dead skin cells that plug hair follicles and preventing the conditions (where oil and bacteria can be trapped) that lead to acne.
Clinical peels also boost the efficacy of the Healthy Skin Solution™ program. Exfoliated skin is the ideal base to allow for better penetration and absorption of active ingredients in many skincare products. The efficacy of other procedures is boosted as well, and is why peels are often recommended as part of a treatment programme.
