  • Chemical Peel involves the application of one or more exfoliating agents (glycolic acid , salicylic acid etc) to the skin, resulting in mild destruction of portions of the epidermis and/or dermis with subsequent regeneration. We have Glycolic acid peel, salicylic acid peel & trichloro acetic acid peel to deal with various problems. Peels are usually used for pigmentory problems like melasma, dark circles ,post inflammatory hyperpigmentation etc. They are also used for all grades of acne (pimples) the best being salicylic acid peel. They are also used to improve the complexion and to remove the tan from the skin.

You can cut, shave , shampoo or color as you need. They tend to grow long and thick as your back hair. It gives a natural look with no scaring or pigmentation.
