smooth your skin by removing damaged outer layers
Treat facial blemishes, fine wrinkles, enlarged pores, acne and uneven skin pigmentation with a variety of chemical peels that incorporate beta hydroxy acid, such as salicylic acid or alpha hydroxy acids – including glycolic, lactic or fruit acids.
The precise formula or concentration is adjusted to meet each patient’s needs. Your skin health specialist will help you make these decisions during your consultation. Here at Charlotte Plastic Surgery, we offer the following chemical peels to produce smoother, brighter-looking skin.
