From Portland Oregon’s Center For Skin and Facial Rejuvenation
The aging process can cause your skin to become lax, pigmented and rough. Fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and discolorations can appear – leaving you looking older than you would prefer. A chemical peel is a mildly invasive procedure used to dissolves the upper layers of dry, damaged skin. By placing a specific mix of chemicals and nutrients on the face, the top layer will slough away and will reveal a radiant new complexion underneath. Here at Style Aesthetics located in the Pearl District in Portland, Oregon – we put great importance on skin therapies like the Vi-Peel Chemical Peel, a proven treatment that works synergistically with all our injectable facial rejuvenation treatments.
