What are natural chemical peels?

A natural chemical peel is a treatment in which a fruit acid solution is applied to the face, neck, or body to break up the bonds that hold the dead skin layers together. With the bonds broken, dead skin sloughs off, eventually peeling, stimulating the body to regenerate new skin cells. The result is smoother, brighter, less wrinkled skin.

How will peels improve your skin?

 • Smooth and soften skin texture

• Increase skin cell turnover

• Improve skin’s ability to hold moisture

Produce more collagen

Reduce fine lines

• Decrease hyper-pigmentation

• Unclog pores, clear up acne

• Even skin tone

• Diminish minor scarring

• Give you a fresh, dewy glow

Who should have a natural chemical peel?

Chemical skin peel treatments are great for acne, rosacea, dry, oily, pigmented, aging, and smoker’s skin. Anyone can have a chemical peel, including those with sensitive skin.

Who shouldn’t have a chemical peel?

People who have been on Accutane within the last 6 months or are pregnant/nursing should delay this treatment. If you have a history of herpes, let the doctor know so she can prescribe an anti-viral for you. If you are on Retin-A you should stop 4 weeks prior to the peel.
