The procedure involves a chemical solution that is applied to the skin. The solution causes the layer of skin to separate and peel off. The new regenerated skin underneath is usually smoother, less wrinkled and more even in both tone and colour than the old skin.
Typically the skin is first thoroughly cleansed. Then the practitioner will carefully apply the solution. You may feel a stinging sensation as the peel solution is applied, but the feeling will quickly pass. A full face peel usually takes no more than 15 minutes.
