Skin peels are a safe and effective way to rejuvenate and revitalise your skin.
Skin peels are used to treat a wide range of common skin conditions such as acne, skin pigmentation, dull tired skin and sun damage. They are also an excellent anti ageing treatment, which can be used alone or in conjunction with other anti ageing injectable treatments like Botulinum toxin and dermal fillers.
The amount of skin removed will depend on the type of chemical used, the strength of the product (superficial, medium depth and deep) and how long it is left on the skin. They can be used on most areas of the body, but are commonly used on the face or the backs of the hands to improve rough skin texture, fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, sun damage, blemishes, scars or acne.
