What Is A Chemical Peel


Chemical peels are a mild acid solution that is diluted enough only to slightly the skin causing it to peel. The burn allows for new skin cells to develop once the previous layer has peeled off. Chemical peels have a similar effect as laser procedures but with less intensity.


The diluted chemical solution causes a burn that is rarely visible to the eye and normally does not cause any redness of the area. This type of procedure requires repeat sessions for treating most conditions.


What Can Chemical Peels Treat


Chemical peels are a pretty universal application as in they can be used to treat many skin problems.


Chemical peels can be used for the following:


  • Acne

  • Minor Scars

  • Uneven skin

  • Fine lines

  • Reduce the signs of aging

  • Skin Resurfacing

  • And many more


After Treatment/ Results


There is practically no downtime, virtually painless, and it is very cost effective. You will need to perform multiple treatment sessions this can only be determined once you have had a consult to evaluate the skin disorder.


Even though this treatment works for many skin problems there are cases where you may need to perform a different form of treatment even after chemical peels.
