A chemical peel is a technique used to improve the appearence of the skin on the face, neck or hands by the use of specialized products which may cause the skin to exfoliate and eventually peel off. Typically administered as a facial peel, a chemical peel enhances and smoothes the texture of the skin. It is an effective treatment for facial blemishes, wrinkles, and uneven skin pigmentation. It exfoliates the outer layers of dead skin, revealing a new skin layer with improved tone, texture, and color. In addition to full facial rejuvenation, certain types of skin peels can also be used for spot treatments and as a way to remove stretch marks or rejuvenate skin elsewhere on the body. The chemical peel is one of the oldest cosmetic procedures in the world, and was performed in ancient Egypt, Greece, and Rome to help people achieve smoother, more beautiful skin. Today, chemical facial peels are popular because they offer nearly immediate results and can be performed as an outpatient procedure.
Skin polishing generally refers to any type of skin exfoliation. The type of exfoliation most commonly known as skin polishing is microdermabrasion, a cosmetic procedure that can improve acne, fine lines or age spots. Skin Polishing is performed using a small device that blasts small crystals onto the skin; these crystals polish the skin's surface. A vacuum tube is then used to remove the crystals and dead skin cells. The purpose of microdermabrasion is to exfoliate your skin and unclog your pores, leaving your skin feeling smooth and clean. It is a very simple procedure with absolutely no downtime. Regular MDA can keep your skin radiant, comedone free and much smoother.
