CHEMICAL PEELS AT SIMPLY RADIANT IN ESSENDON

A chemical peel is a technique that is used to improve the appearance of the skin. There are many ways we can go about looking after our skin, from adjusting our diet, to protecting it against the harmful effects of ultraviolet (UV) rays. However, in addition to these steps, we can also supplement our skin care routine with professional treatments, designed to give your skin an extra boost and keep it healthy. Amongst these treatments is the chemical peel, and while it might sound slightly intimidating to the uninitiated, a facial peel provides numerous benefits to support your skin.

How do chemical peels work? 

As the name suggests, these treatments work by applying a carefully balanced formula to your skin. The following reaction makes the outer, superficial layer of dull, dead skin cells start to release and lift off, giving a mild peeling affect. After, it reveals a fresh, revitalized complexion beneath. Chemical peels can help to treat fine lines as well as the effects of photoaging (including wrinkles). In addition, the right formula can also minimize the appearance of age spots and freckles, acne as well as mild scarring. Here is a closer look into the different types of chemical peels that we offer at simply radiant.
