Clinicare superficial peels use a mixture of Glycolic, Saliicylic and Lactic acids to remove the upper layer of the epidermis encouraging rejuvenation and regeneration of new skin cells, the result is improved appearance of skin with fewer lines, improved texture and tone, a brighter and more youthful complexion. As we get older our skin processes naturally begins to slow down, skin cell turn over slows as does collagen production and elastin begins break down resulting in the start of fine lines and wrinkles, relaxing of skin features and texture can be effected as well as the tone of the skin becoming dull. Chemical skin peels help to remove dead skin cells from the surface of the epidermis (skin) revealing fresh new skin cells underneath and stimulating more skin cell turnover along with helping the production of collagen.
