How Do Chemical Peels Work?

The term “chemical peel” somewhat explains the nature of this exfoliating treatment. Specifically, chemical peels work by altering the acidity of the skin. Naturally, the skin sustains a pH of approximately 5.5. A chemical peel increases that to about 3.8 pH. This change in the skin’s pH peel loosens the cells that hold dead and damaged cells to healthy underlying skin. With differing peel strengths, we can encourage just the right amount of cellular turnover to achieve your desired outcome.
