mesopeel is the most advanced range of specific chemical peels, designed for doctors and aesthetic practitioners requiring safe, efficient products that are easy to use and control. These peels break down the dead, damaged cells within the skin and exfoliate it away. Peels also stimulate the collagen and elastin within the skin and production of Hyaluronic Acid. These are the main substances in our skin responsible for elasticity and firmness. Acids also help to fight off free radicals, stop them from oxidising the skin and form a protective barrier around the skin cell.
