What is a peel and how does it works?
A peel is an skin friendly acid or combination of acids which have a great deal of benefits for your skin, body and face depending on which combination your doctor chooses. At Derma Touch we try to get the best possible results and also keep in mind that we choose acids and the application process where downtime is minimum.
What is the procedure like?
• We cleanse your skin.
• Then a gel/fluid is applied with an applicator and allowed to rest on your skin for some time.
• Later, your skin is again cleansed or neutralised.
• Some peels are applied on your skin and you go home with them, letting them stay on for longer hours.
What can I expect out of a peel?
