Medical Strength Chemical Peels

The procedure known as chemical peeling (chemexfoliation) involves the application of a chemical solution to the surface of the skin to produce the careful removal of its outer layers. It is helpful for those with facial blemishes, uneven skin pigmentation, sun damaged skin, age spots and acne outbreaks.

The use of chemical peels to soften and improve the appearance of the skin dates back over 3,500 years to the ancient Egyptians. Historians tell how Egyptian women bathed in sour milk, or rubbed fermented grape skins from the bottom of wine barrels over their skin to enhance beauty. Little did they know they were benefiting from the superficial skin-peeling effects of a family of chemicals called hydroxy acids which remove the outer layers of skin.
