Want to achieve a fresh-faced glow? A chemical peel is a great place to start.
If you’re not exactly sure what a chemical peel is, it’s a chemical solution applied to the skin to improve and smooth texture and reduce scarring and dark spots. Chemical peels are designed to remove the skin’s outermost layers. To accomplish this, the chosen peel solution causes a controlled injury to the skin.
Chemical peels are graded in terms of strength, with Level 1 Peels being the mildest and Level 4 (TCA Peels) being the strongest. Glycolic acid and salicylic acid are the most common peeling agents in a Level 2 peel, and more gentle peeling agents are based on simple fruit enzymes.
