A chemical peel is a topically applied acid solution designed to smooth the texture of your skin by removing the damaged outer layers. Chemical peels create a controlled exfoliation throughout your skin to even out discoloration while brightening the skin. Chemical peels are a great choice for treating rough, dehydrated sun-damaged or acneic skin. Sun exposure, acne, or just getting older can leave your skin tone uneven, wrinkled, spotted or scarred. A chemical peel is one of the least invasive ways to improve the appearance of your skin. The type of peel you will receive is customized. The nature and depth of the peel will vary per person. Your esthetician will recommend what peel is right for you ranging from light, medium, to deep peels.
Although chemical peels are used mostly on the face, they can also be used to improve the skin on your neck and hands.
