What exactly is a chemical peel?

A chemical peel is a skin rejuvenation technique that has been used for decades. They are designed to help diminish fine lines and improve uneven skin tone by reducing the appearance of sunspots, age spots, and melasma (the pigmentation that can occur with birth control pills, pregnancy, or other hormonal imbalances). Chemical peels can also be used as a treatment for acne as well as mild acne scars. As an added benefit, they can also help improve pre-cancerous skin changes that are a result of excessive sun exposure. Overall, chemical peels will make skin appear younger, healthier and more vibrant. The use of chemical peels is not confined solely to the face but are used to treat other areas such as the neck, chest, hands, arms and legs.

During a chemical peel treatment, the skin is prepped and degreased and the appropriate chemical peel is applied. This process causes the top layer of skin cells to shed, revealing fresher, younger looking skin. There are many different types of chemical peels, each designed for different skin concerns which allows your provider to select a peel that is tailored to their patients specific skin care needs, budget and availability for down time.
