How Can Chemical Peels Enhance the Skin’s Appearance?

At Aura Skin Spa, Dr. Anthony Waechter and his staff work directly with San Francisco, CA area men and women to help them improve the health and beauty of their skin. When patients have a variety of complaints as to the appearance, texture, and tone of their facial skin, he may recommend a treatment known as a chemical peel.

What is a chemical peel?

Chemical peels have been used for hundreds of years in enhancing the skin’s texture, tone, and overall appearance. These peels use a special blend of chemical ingredients that can help in removing dead skin cells and stimulating the body’s natural collagen and elastin production. The final result is clear, supple, glowing skin that will last for many months!

Which peel is right for me?

The team of Aura Skin Spa has a selection of VI Peels that can be used in treating all types of skin colors and concerns. However, a treatment right for one patient may not be right for another.
