Chemical Peels involve the careful application of a chemical exfoliant to the epidermis of the skin specifically for the removal of superficial lesions and blemishes. Medical grade Chemical peels improve fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone, shallow acne scarring, sun damaged skin, age spots and sagging/ageing skin.
The nature of the chemical compound, the concentration of the acid and the level of time it is in contact with the skin will determine the level of skin penetration and the level of peeling. Skintalks only recommends light to medium peels as these are safe, scientifically researched and proven. These peels require no down time and the results are very impressive.
