How It Works
Facial peels Calgary use a combination of natural ingredients. Outer layers of damaged skin are literally peeled away and replaced by new, younger-looking and healthier skin. The amount of peeling and side effects depend on the strength of the peel. Mild and medium chemical face peels are quick procedures and typically result in redness for only a few days.
What To Expect
Expect a fresh, renewed complexion to emerge within a few days as the dead cells skin flake off. The revitalized skin feels soft with a healthy radiance and patient who receive a series of facial peels will notice a difference in skin texture, improvement in pigmentation, control of acne and comedones, easier application of make-up, and a reduction of fine lines.
A chemical peel can improve skin texture and tone, as well as decrease the appearance of fine wrinkles. The results will be subtle at first, but will increase with repeated treatments.
