A chemical peel is a body treatment technique used to improve and smooth the texture of the facial skin using a chemical solution that causes the dead skin to slough off and eventually peel off. The regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin.
There are different types of chemical peels available:
- A superficial chemical peel will result in fresher, brighter looking skin with minimal recovery time - known as the lunch time peel this is virtually painless and recovery is fairly instant with peeling unlikely.
- A deeper peel will also reveal instantly brighter skin but will result in a slower recovery time with peeling likely to last up to 7 days.
