So what is a chemical peel? 

Chemical peels, they sound scary right?

We can assure you that if it were ever as scary as you think, Hollywood would have probably commercialised it by now with a low budget horror movie called “The chemical peel man”.

Although the word peel does not seem so a-peel-ling allow us to explain why this is actually an amazing treatment.

Every single day, our bodies shed dead skin cells. This is completely a natural process. Especially when we are asleep the regenerative process really kicks in and accelerates the skin’s repair and cell regeneration. Between 11 p.m. and 4 a.m., our cell production can even double. (Side note ladies, this is why we always say DON’T go to sleep with makeup on. Consequently, you are preventing your face to repair itself naturally, sies!)

As we age, our skins tend to struggle in shedding those dead skin cells at the right time. As a result, we get pigmentation, poor complexion and enlarged pores.

Lamelle Chemical peels help us with this problem. It literally helps the skin to peel away dead, old and unwanted skin cells. This treatment speeds up the regeneration process and gives you an overall skin improvement. The peel helps your skin to shed the old and helps the new to start growing.


So, does it hurt?

No, it doesn’t hurt. Some have described the feeling as a tingling sensation. Any discomfort subsides after a minute or two.

Is there any downtime?

Nope, no downtime needed either. You can go back to your normal daily routine right after the treatment.
