What is a Chemical Peel?
A chemical peel is a procedure in which medical grade ingredients are applied to the skin in order to thoroughly exfoliate or resurface it. There are several types of chemical peels which may be available, ranging from light or medium depth peels. This means that a chemical peel is a versatile treatment option and that experiences and recovery will vary. During a consultation, your chemical peel provider can explain different types of peels and your best option.
Benefits of a Chemical Peel
A light or superficial chemical peel removes only the outer layer of the skin, known as the epidermis. This improves milder issues in the skin such as fine lines, dryness, acne or rough texture. A light peel typically requires no downtime.
Medium chemical peels remove the epidermis and some cells from the dermis, or middle layer of the skin. Medium peels can be used to improve wrinkles, pigmentation issues or acne scars.
