A chemical peel is one of the least invasive technique used to improve the appearance of the skin on the face, neck or hands. Sun exposure, acne, or just getting older can leave your skin tone uneven, wrinkled, spotted or scarred.
A chemical solution is applied to the skin that causes it to exfoliate and eventually peel off. The new, regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin.
A chemical peel can help improve acne or acne scars, age and liver spots, fine lines and wrinkles, freckles, irregular skin pigmentation, rough skin and scaly patches and sun-damaged skin. However, sagging skin, bulges, and more severe wrinkles do not respond well to chemical peels.
After a chemical peel, skin is temporarily more sensitive to the sun and we recommend using sunscreen every day.
