Skin & Face Treatments
-SKIN & FACE-
A chemical peel is a technique that involves the application of a peel solution on the skin which causes it to exfoliate and eventually peel off giving way to the generation of fresh skin. The new, regenerated skin is usually smoother, radiant, hydrated and youthful.
At INDYU Skin Clinic Kochi, we have an extensive range of over 15 peels and each individual skin is assessed and treated accordingly with single to multiple sessions.
