What is a Chemical Peel?
Chemical peels are a technique used to improve the appearance of the skin by exfoliating the skin using specific chemicals. For this treatment, a chemical solution is applied to the skin, causing the dead skin to lift and eventually peel off. The new, regenerated skin is often smoother with less wrinkles than the old skin, and is also temporarily more sensitive to sunlight.
What Conditions Do A Chemical Peel Treat?
Chemical peels are performed on the face, neck or hands. They can be used to:
- Reduce fine lines under the eyes and around the mouth
- Treat wrinkles caused by sun damage, aging, and family history
- Improve the appearance of mild scarring
- Treat certain types of acne
- Reduce age spots, freckles and liver spots
- Improve the look and feel of skin that is dull in texture and color
- Or just as a maintenance to have your skin look glowy
Areas of sun damage, which may contain pre-cancerous cells that look like scaly spots, may improve after a chemical peel. Following treatment, new pre-cancerous spots are less likely to appear.
Severe wrinkles do not respond well to chemical peels, they often require other cosmetic procedures such as Sciton microlaser peel or dermal fillers.
