Chemical Peels in Westerville, Ohio
What Are Chemical Peels?
Chemical peels remove the damaged outer layers of skin on the face in order to smooth texture, reduce scarring, remove blemishes, and promote collagen to produce healthy, glowing, radiant skin. Chemical peels are great for reducing the signs of aging and skin imperfections. There are many varieties of chemical peels ranging from gentle to medium depth peels. You may experience peeling or no peeling of the skin, depending on what peel you choose.
If you have never had a chemical peel before, please schedule a complimentary consultation with our esthetician to assess which chemical peel would be best suited for you, and how to best prepare your skin for the chemical peel.
