MEDICAL GRADE PEELS WORKS
A peel treatment starts with a chemical solution to remove the outer layers of skin. This stimulates new skin growth. The new skin is usually smoother, less wrinkled, and more even in colour. Chemical peels may produce reddening and peeling like sunburn. This lasts a few days to several weeks, depending on the strength and depth of the chemical peel.
