Chemical Peels

Chemical peels aim to accelerate skin exfoliation, revealing fresher, healthier-looking skin, and a more even texture. A chemical solution is applied to the skin, causing rapid exfoliation of the top layer, which then peels off. The outer layer of dull, wrinkled, discolored skin cells is lifted off and replaced with healthy new cells that give a smoother, more youthful look.

Peels range from superficial to medium to deep. Recovery time is dependent upon the strength of the peel.

Chemical peels are suitable for:

  • acne
  • fine lines
  • uneven skin tone and textures
  • sun damage
  • age spots

DLC offers:

  • Skin Medica Vitalize peel
  • Beta-Lift Peel
