Chemical Peels are liquids brushed on to the face to remove dead skin cells and stimulate the growth of new cells. It can help minimise the signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles, and removes scars and blemishes from acne, sunspots, and freckles.
Refresh and renew your skin with one of the tailor-made skin peel treatments at Skindays. We offer a variety of peels.
