In our September newsletter, we discussed the importance of the skin barrier’s acid mantle protective layer and how excessive and or harsh cleansing agents may be. This can cause dry, flaky, sensitive skin and may aggravate various underlying skin conditions.
On the other hand, an occasional light chemical peel might be a good supplement to your regular skin care regimen. This involves the application of a chemical solution to remove top skin layers leading to growth of new, smoother, and younger looking skin.
Removing only the outer layers of skin, this exfoliation can help uneven pigmentation, dryness, acne and fine wrinkling. These procedures take only 15 minutes, and the downtime is minimal. We offer various kinds of light peels including Beta Lift, VIPeels and mild strength TCA peels. Talk to your doctor about the right peel for you.
