CLINICARE AHA/BHA* CHEMICAL PEELS

The chemical peel is one of the oldest cosmetic procedures in the world. Today chemical peels are among the most popular and widely recognised methods of improving the health and appearance of skin by removing dead skin cells and encouraging new ones to grow. Chemical peel depth can range from very superficial to deep, although several light depth peels can often achieve similar results to one deeper peel treatment, with less risk and shorter recovery time.

 

 

Clinicare superficial peels contain a mixture of Gycolic, Lactic and Salicylic Acids to remove the upper layer of the epidermis encouraging regeneration and rejuvenation of new skin cells. The result is the improved clinical appearance of skin with fewer fine lines, a brighter complexion, improved skin tone and a more youthful appearance. The Clinicare peels come in 3 targeted ranges for specific skin indications and are extremely well tolerated and are extremely well tolerated with minimum side effects
