What is a Chemical peel?
Chemical peels were the very earliest form of skin rejuvenation, dating back to Egyptian times, when Cleopatra enjoyed both wine baths and milk soaks.
A chemical peel is a professional cosmetic technique aimed at improving the skin.
A chemical substance (the peeling agent) is applied to the skin, resulting in an intentional exfoliation of the old superficial skin cells. As a result, new and young skin cells appear at the upper layer and a new smoother, fresher and more toned skin is obtained.
Peels are used to treat a variety of conditions including superficial lines and wrinkles, pigmentation and discolouration, acne, dull skin, enlarged pores, uneven or rough skin and irregular sebum secretion, and are suitable for virtually all skin types. Chemical peels are one of the most popular treatments at S3, with immediate results…smoother, fresher, brighter glowing skin with no downtime.
