Skin peels (also called chemical peels) are skin-resurfacing procedures in which liquids are brushed on to the face to remove the top layer of cells and stimulate the growth of new cells. The aim of this cosmetic procedure is to improve the appearance of the facial skin – for example, by reducing age spots and evening out skin tone. The skin that grows back after a chemical peel is smoother and younger looking.
Skin peels are not limited to improving your facial skin; this rejuvenating treatment can be used to refresh the hands and neck as well, to create a more complete age-defying effect.
Chemical peels can be used to treat wrinkles, skin discolouration and scars — typically on the face. Chemical peels can be done at different depths — light, medium or deep — depending on your desired results. Each type of chemical peel uses a different chemical solution. Deeper chemical peels produce more-dramatic results, but also involve longer recovery times.
Obagi is a uniquely powerful skincare line that offers a wide range of benefits, including anti-aging and rejuvenating actions.
The Obagi system may help diminish fine lines and wrinkles; increase smoothness; reduce pore size; improve skin laxity, generate a balanced, even skin tone, normalize oil production, correct blemishes, reduce age spots and other hyperpigmentation and increase the skin’s tolerance to external factors.
We do recommend a consultation with one of our Dermatologists to understand which regimen might best work for your skin type and produce the desired results.
