The Return of Chemical Peels

Tweet Email We’ve heard that phrase “history tends to repeat itself,” It’s always fascinating to learn that many of the “latest innovations” are actually techniques discovered and used in the past, lending further support to that other common saying “there is nothing new under the sun.” And so it goes with trends that what goes around usually comes around.
