Skin Polishing and Chemical Peeling

You can go for skin polishing treatment if you want your skin to become smoother, softer and brighter. The most common types of skin exfoliation are microdermabrasion and chemical peels. Chemical peeling minimises the appearance of different spots or scars present on your skin by the use of certain chemicals. Chemical peeling involves applying high potency acids on skin. Applying these acids removes the surface scars and lessens the appearance of deeper scars. It improves the appearance of skin.
