If you are looking to reduce the signs of aging and improve overall skin tone and texture without a surgical procedure, a chemical peel could be right for you. Chemical peels tighten pores and reduce fine lines that result in brighter, more youthful looking skin.
Glycolic acid peels involve the application of a prescription-strength solution that penetrates the topmost layers of the facial skin to rejuvenate on a cellular level. This exfoliation of the epidermis (outer layer of the skin) can be performed on the entire face or just certain areas. A single chemical peel treatment may provide good results for some, but others may opt for repeated treatments to improve skin’s overall texture (deeper peel). This is a highly effective procedure with no downtime.
