ARE RESURFACERS AND PEELS THE SAME?
RESURFACER AND PEELS : ARE THEY THE SAME?
What is a Resurfacer?
A Resurfacer is a superficial exfoliating treatment working in the Stratum Corneum layer (the very top layer of the skin). Resurfacers generally have no recovery time and are effective in addressing many skin concerns and desires through the use of Enzymes and Acids which aid in the ability of desquamation (exfoliation) of the skin which in turn refines your skin's texture.
A full skin analysis and patch test must be given prior to these treatments.
What is a Peel?
A chemical peel is a treatment that works in the mid to deep layers of the epidermis where resurfacers cannot reach for a deeper level of desquamation (exfoliation) and a more refined skin texture.
A full skin analysis and patch test must be undertaken prior to these treatments.
