Even sensitive skin can achieve long-lasting complexion improvements from the right chemical peel.
During the chemical peel, the team applies the chemical solution to your skin after applying a topical numbing agent. They let the chemicals rest for a specific amount of time, depending on the type of peel, then apply an agent that neutralizes the chemicals. Then, they gently wipe your face with clean cloths.
