Therapeutic peels, also known as chemical peels, have been used for decades to revitalize and resurface the skin. Essentially a blended solution of medical grade ingredients, a therapeutic peel removes the damaged outer layers of the epidermis to help eliminate facial blemishes, balance skin pigmentation and minimize pores. It can also erase the marks of sun damage.
At Dermaworks Medical Aesthetics Clinic, we combine a variety of active cosmeceutical ingredients to effectively achieve the results you desire, whether it be to help smooth the skin’s texture or erase pigmentation irregularities. Each procedure is a half hour. The face, hands, neck, back and shoulders may be treated.
Therapeutic peels may be performed alone or to compliment other non-invasive procedures, such as laser skin treatments or Vibradermabrasion.
