Chemical peels speed up the exfoliation process, encouraging cell turnover that leaves the skin looking fresh and healthy. The result is exfoliation after a treatment, often seen in the form of peeling or flaking that usually starts 2-3 days after the peel is performed that lasts a couple days. Ingredients in the peel solution are also working to create new cells that function properly, not only visibly improving the skin, but correcting from within.
