HOW IT WORKS
During a chemical peel, we will apply the exfoliant acid first to the thicker areas of skin, such as the chin, nose, and cheeks, before applying it to the thinner areas around the eyes and mouth.
After the chemical peel, we may use cool saline compresses to remove any remaining exfoliant.
