What are Chemical Peels?
Chemical peels are a popular cosmetic procedure that rejuvenates the skin’s appearance and texture by applying a chemical solution to the skin. These peels are classified into superficial, medium, and deep-layered peels. They stimulate collagen production, resulting in firmer, more youthful skin. They will help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars, promote even skin tone, and diminish issues like hyperpigmentation and sun damage. They also aid in unclogging pores, reducing inflammation, and contributing to clearer skin for acne-prone individuals. Chemical peels also help reduce sun damage by minimising sunspots and enhancing the skin’s resistance to UV radiation.
What are Mesopeels?
Mesopeel is a specialised chemical peel by Mesoestetic, a renowned medical skincare brand. These peels are tailored to individual skin concerns, targeting issues like aging, pigmentation, or acne. Mesopeel formulas vary in strength and ingredients, offering a precise solution for each patient’s needs.
