Over time, dead skin cells build up on your skin causing dullness, flaking, and texture. You may be prone to dry skin, or you may find that your skin doesn’t quite look like it used to as you age. One of the best ways to give your skin a refresh is with a professional chemical peel.

For more radiant, glowing skin, it’s important to exfoliate and encourage skin cell turnover. Chemical peels in Zachary at Renaissance Dermatology & Aesthetics utilize professional-grade ingredients to exfoliate away dead skin cells for restored, beautiful skin.
