A chemical peel is a procedure used to improve the appearance of the skin on your face, hands, and neck. Generally, an acid solution is applied to the area to be treated with the objective of exfoliating or slough off the outer most layer of skin to remove dead skin cells, and dry, flakey skin to reveal new, softer and smoother skin. It will rejuvenate your skin.
How Does it Work?
There are several types of chemical peels that vary in strength and treat different levels of the skin. Superficial peelings are gentle peels used for mild exfoliation of the outer layer of skin, to improve the look of mild skin discolorations, smooth rough skin, and overall refreshment. Medium peels reach the middle layer of skin to remove damaged skin cells. These can improve the look of age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, superficial blemishes, freckles and moderate skin discolorations. The deep peel will erase moderate lines and wrinkles, age spots, freckles and shallow scars. It also provides a dramatically improved appearance with long-lasting results. It is only used on the face and can only be performed one time.
