Chemical peels are techniques used to improve skin texture, fight aging, reduce pigmentation, sun damage, treat acne and so many other skin benefits. They help your skin look fresh, young, and beautiful by peeling off dead skins and the regenerated skin is usually smoother, less wrinkled than the old skin.
Lactic acid is a non-irritating rapid exfoliate that increases the skin cell turnover on the surface of the skin and produces a more vibrant and smoother skin. Lactic/50 peel procedure is a good treatment that actively combats acne
by removing toxins on the surface of the skin. While Lactic Acid works on the surface of the skin, Glycolic/60 peel procedure works below the skin’s surface stimulating the underlying collagen and it is designed to fight acne, dryness, and skin dehydration.
