As you age, your skin begins to show the effects of this constant assault. Acne scars, sun spots, wrinkles and discoloration are just a few of the signs you may notice as you age.

Even people who pamper their skin with gentle soaps and moisturizers will inevitably need a little professionalhelp to maintain a youthful appearance. One method of rejuvenation you can't get at home is a chemical peel. This simple procedure uses a chemical exfoliant to remove damaged layers of skin revealthe healthy, youthful skinunderneath.

Goodbye acne scars
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, acne affects roughly 50 million people each year. Although it's typically associated with teenagers, acne can affect people well into their 30s and beyond. Medication, stress and hormones can cause sudden outbreaks at any time of life.
