Chemical Peel Treatment
Peeled to Perfection! Create a younger look by improving the texture of your skin!
Chemical skin peels help to create a younger look by improving the texture of your skin.
They help to reduce the signs of ageing, scars and blemishes while creating healthier, firmer looking skin without the need for surgery . As a regular treatment, it can also help the skin to appear smoother, brighter and plumper.
Chemical peels remove the top layer or layers of skin using a chemical preparation. As the new skin grows back, it is normally smoother than before and imperfections are reduced.
Chemical Peels can improve fine lines and small acne scars. The skin cells rapidly reform which causes the formation of new collagen, this causes tightening of the skin and eliminates pigmentation such as sun spots, age spots, liver spots, freckles and blotchiness.
At Boutique Dental, we recommend a course of 6 Chemical Peels done every 2 weeks to achieve clearer, smoother and brighter skin.
