Chemical Peels in San Diego

 

What is a Chemical Peel and How Does it Work?

A chemical peel is a skin treatment that rejuvenates the skin and an individual’s appearance by revealing vibrant and youthful skin.* A chemical peel works to remove the dead skin cells on the outermost layer of the skin, allowing the next layer of skin to replace the old layer. The old skin cells are removed by using a chemical solution, usually an acid of some kind, that creates a controlled wound in small areas of the skin. New skin will grow to replace the discarded skin, and this fresh layer of skin is healthier and fresher, resulting in tighter and more radiant skin.* A chemical peel also results in less visible wrinkles, blemishes, and fine lines.*

Types of Chemical Peels
