What is a chemical peel?
Chemical peels, or medical grade glycolic peels, is one of the oldest methods of skin care known. Since the time of the Ancient Egyptians, peels have been used to get smoother and more beautiful skin. Today they remain popular because patients often see near immediate results.
Chemical peels can be performed on the face, hands or neck. A chemical solution, usually a mix of naturally exfoliating acids like BHA and AHA, is applied by a certified technician from Defy Nature. Once the chemical solution has fully affected the skin, the old skin at the treatment area begins to peel off. A chemical peel removes a layer of rough, uneven top skin to reveal smoother, younger-looking, and more evenly toned skin.
While most patients see results almost instantly after their first treatment, 2 to 3 treatments are recommended to get the full effects of a chemical peel.
