Facial Peels

chemicalpeelFacial or “chemical” peels have been used for hundreds of years to create an even and controlled shedding of damaged skin cells. In fact, Cleopatra applied a “sour milk” glycolic acid mixture to her skin! Science has advanced over the years and now, with new advances, we offer individualized formulas that address your skin care needs. These treatments can be used on your face, neck, chest, back, hands…virtually anywhere!

As we age, the accumulated effects of sun exposure, pollutants, acne, and scarring can damage our skin and cause us to look older than we are. At Affordable Laser and Cosmetic Clinic, we strongly believe that healthy skin is beautiful skin. Peels make a huge difference in skin texture because of their ultra-exfoliation properties.

The goal of chemical peeling is skin renewal – a controlled thickness of damaged skin is removed in order to stimulate normal healing and skin rejuvenation. In this treatment, solutions are applied to remove the stratum corneum (dead skin cells), and stimulate the production of new skin cells. It works by acting on the bond that holds dead skin cells on the surface, speeding up the natural exfoliating process. Dead cells are then removed, leaving behind a layer of smoother and softer skin.
