There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.

Chemical Peels

A chemical peel is a procedure in which a chemical solution is applied to your skin to removing layers creating a controlled wound response resulting in the stimulation of new cell growth. The skin that grows back is smoother, tighter, and more evenly toned leaving you in healthier glowing skin.

Your Reveal team uses chemical peels to treat wrinkles, discolored skin, and scars — usually on the face but other areas of the body can be treated. Peels can be done alone or combined with other cosmetic procedures, and they can be performed at different depths, ranging from light to deep. Our skin care professionals will discuss which type of peel will be right for you because some clients want to “see” their skin peeling as to other do not want it noticeable at all!
