How Do Medical Peels Work?

Medical peels break down and remove the bonds holding the top layers of the skin together, eliminating damaged abnormal skin cells on the outer surface to reveal healthier skin cells underneath. Superficial imperfections like pigmentation marks may be removed during the procedure for a clearer complexion. The exfoliation process offered by the peel treatment also stimulates a controlled amount of inflammation and induces collagen remodelling, resulting in thicker, healthier skin over time and an improvement in your appearance overall.

Medical Peels Offered At Kaya Cosmedica
