Creating a smoother, more radiant complexion with a customized chemical peel in Vancouver, WA
A chemical peel works by using a special formula to exfoliate your outermost layer of damaged skin, revealing a more youthful, attractive complexion underneath. Chemical peels are ideal for addressing a wide variety of facial blemishes, including acne scars, wrinkles and fine lines, uneven skin texture and enlarged pores.
Each peel is customized to your needs and lifestyle, so you will receive just the right treatment for your type of skin. Some peels may work to stimulate collagen production, a protein that is responsible for the skin’s resilience, hydration and healthy glow
