Chemical peeling stimulates the protective reaction of the organism, thereby increasing the production of hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin. And this, in turn, improves the skin tone, removes the skin blemishes, eliminates wrinkles and improves the glow. This procedure can also help in removing many unpleasant skin changes that occur due to aging; pigmentation, scars and even acne related problems.
