How does skin peels work ?

Chemical Interaction: Skin peels use chemical solutions, like alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs), beta-hydroxy acids (BHAs), or enzymes, which react with the skin.

Exfoliation: These chemicals break down the bonds between dead skin cells, facilitating the exfoliation of the outermost layer of skin.

Stimulation of New Cells: By removing the outer layer, peels stimulate the regeneration of a new layer of skin with improved texture and tone.

Collagen Production: Certain peels promote collagen production, essential for skin elasticity and reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

Unclogging Pores: Acids in the peels, like salicylic acid, penetrate and unclog pores, reducing acne and improving skin clarity.

Targeting Pigmentation: Peels can target and diminish the appearance of hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tones by removing the outer layer with these issues.

pH Adjustment: The acidic nature of peels helps balance the skin’s pH, making it less prone to bacterial infections and acne.

Enhanced Absorption: Post-peel, the skin is more receptive to skincare products, allowing for deeper penetration and efficacy of treatments.
