What is a chemical peel?
A chemical peel uses a chemical solution to improve the texture and tone of your skin by removing the damaged outer layers.
Although chemical peels are used mostly on the face, they can also be used to improve the skin on your neck and hands. Sun exposure, acne or just getting older can leave your skin tone uneven, wrinkled, spotted or scarred.
A chemical peel is one of the most cost-effective ways to improve the appearance of your skin. The potential result of the chemical peel depends on the type of chemical and technique used.
Conditions that can be improved by a chemical peel include:
- Acne or acne scars
- Enlarged pore
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Irregular skin pigmentation and melasma
- Rough skin and scaly patches
- Certain scars
- Sun-damaged skin
What a chemical peel can’t do?
- Treat deep facial lines or wrinkles
- Significantly tighten loose or sagging skin
- Remove deep scars
