WHAT IS A BACK CHEMICAL PEEL
Back chemical peels are just like facial chemical peels but for your back. They use acids at different concentrations to achieve several results including reducing fine lines and wrinkles, treating acne scars and bacne, improving the appearance of mild scars, reduce age spots, dark patches and freckles, even out skin tone and make your skin look and feel smoother and rejuvenated.
WHAT TO EXPECT
The appointment starts with skin cleanse and prep. Your esthetician will then apply the acid solution to your skin using a tool like a brush or sponge. You might feel a slight burning/tingly sensation while the solution is on your skin but nothing unmanageable. This process stimulates collagen and increases cellular turnover to unclogs pores, evens out skin tone, improves texture, and reveals new, fresh skin. After leaving the solution on your skin for a specific amount of time, your esthetician will neutralize and remove it. They will then apply a cool compress to your back to soothe the skin.
