Skin peeling procedure involves an application of a chemical solution that rejuvenates, brighten and even out skin tone by reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation (dark spots, acne marks, sun spots, freckles) and skin discoloration. The procedure is meant to diminish imperfections by peeling away the skin's top layers, revealing new, smoother skin beneath.

How the procedure is done?
Before applying the peel, the skin is prepped. Once the skin is ready, a solution is applied using a sponge, cotton pad or cotton swab to the areas to be treated. During the peel, your skin will tingle, feel prickly, and turn hot. Peeling don't hurt so much that they require anesthetics, but they are uncomfortable. For some people, "frosting" actually occurs. This is where parts of your skin turn white during the peel. Frosting during a skin peeling may look scary, but places where you frost are the places where your skin will brown and will peel the most.

What to expect after the Treatment
Over the next 1 to 14 days, depending on how deeply the chemical penetrated the skin, the skin peels off. This procedure destroys parts of the skin in a controlled way so that new skin can grow in its place. Avoid sun exposure especially for the first week after treatment. Thereafter, apply sunscreen everyday as new skin is more susceptible to sun damage. Work and normal activities can be resumed immediately.
