Chemical peels are created using medical grade glycolic acid and can be used on the face and neck. Peels are painted onto the face in a thin layer and left for a period of time. Once removed, the skin will begin a new cycle of regrowth, with the original layer peeling off over time. The skin that is left will be newer and smoother. Fine lines and wrinkles are minimised and scarring and other facial imperfections can also be improved using this technique. Some redness and downtime is usual with this treatment.
