As we age, the accumulated effects of sun exposure, pollutants, acne, and scarring can damage our skin and cause us to look older than we are. Such skin damage can be treated with mild to medium depth peels such as glycolic acid, salicylic acid, TCA, retinoic acid, glutathione, and more. All of which produces a chemical peel that alters the pH of the skin and dissolves the protein bonds that hold the cells together.
A chemical peel is exfoliation taken to a new level. The peel essentially causes the top layer of skin, most of which is dead skin cells, to peel off, revealing younger-looking, healthier skin.
