Our skin undergoes a renewal cycle after every 28 days. The old skin is shed off and newer layers of skin are revealed. The old skin accumulates as dead skin cells on the surface of the face. Deposition of dead skin cells leads to a dull complexion. The best way to get rid of the dead skin is through chemical exfoliation.
Chemical exfoliation is achieved by applying a low to high strength chemical peel. The peel comprises Alpha Hydroxy Acids such as lactic or glycolic acid, Beta Hydroxy Acids such as glycolic acid, or a combination of both. These acids break down the bonds of skin cells, causing them to come loose and slough off the skin.
