CHEMICAL PEELS – Obagi Blue Peel Radiance

Chemical peels done at exthetics

A chemical peel is a technique used to rejuvenate and improve the appearance of the skin on the face, neck or hands. A chemical solution is applied to the skin that causes it to exfoliate and eventually peel off. The new, regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin.

Chemical Peels can help minimise wrinkles, dullness, hyperpigmentation, and scarring.
