What is a Facial Peel?

If you’re in search of spotless, wrinkle-free skin, but don’t know how to achieve it, why not try a classical facial peel. A facial peel can rejuvenate the skin and help with a number of skin problems. But what exactly is a facial peel, and how is it done.

What exactly is a facial peel?
A facial peel is a skin rejuvenation procedure that revitalizes the face by getting rid of dead skin cells on the top layer of the skin. Removing the outer skin layer accelerates cell turnover, unclogs the pores, and brightens the complexion. Facial peels are a great way to uncover radiant, youthful skin.

Facial peels involve the application of a chemical solution to the skin, so as to enable the exfoliation process. There are different types of peels, as some are deeper than others, and the one selected will depend on the specific skin concern being treated, as well as your skin type.

After treatment the skin will be somewhat red, dry, and irritated. The treated skin cells will slowly shed and a new layer will appear within 7-10 days. Optimal healing can take up to 2 weeks.

What facial peels treat?
Facial peels are useful for treating a range of skin concerns including fine lines, certain types of acne, melasma, uneven skin pigmentation, rough texture, dullness, and more. When the old skin layer is exfoliated, it is replaced by fresh skin cells that are softer, smoother, and more flexible.
