A chemical peel treatment is a specific technique for skin renewal. During this process a high concentration of glycolic acid and other substances like salicylic acid is applied to the skin for a short period of time and then chemically neutralised or removed to end the treatment. This procedure rapidly removes the damaged layer of surface skin cells revealing fresh skin and stimulating cell rebuilding and restructuring of deeper skin layers. This procedure can help the skin appear smoother, healthier, plumper and tighter.
