A chemical peel is a popular skin-care treatment applied to the neck, hands, or face. Most people get a chemical peel to enhance their skin’s appearance and improve texture. During a peel, chemical solutions are applied to the site of treatment. The solution triggers both exfoliation and rejuvenation in the skin. Once the outer layer of skin peels off, the new skin beneath is smoother, less wrinkled, and less blemished. Chemical peels are used to treat many skin conditions or blemishes.
Chemical peels are excellent for treating:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Sun damage
- Acne scars
- Uneven skin tone or redness
