Cosmetic procedures come and go over the years but if you haven’t noticed, chemical peels have been mainstays in cosmetic clinics and spas for a while now. This just goes to show that chemical peels actually work and most people are actually satisfied with its results. Here at our Los Angeles nonsurgical cosmetic practice, chemical peels are one of our most popular treatments. While you may be confused as to which type of chemical peel is ideal for you, the Los Feliz team will personalize the strength and type of your chemical depending on your needs and preferences.
