Chemical Peels can reduce skin damage, giving the skin a more youthful or unblemished appearance.

Chemical peels can reduce skin damage, giving the skin a more youthful or unblemished appearance. Chemical peels are a skin treatment that involve using acids to exfoliate the skin. The acid removes a uniform amount of damaged skin cells across the treatment area. When done appropriately, this allows the skin to heal.

Chemical peels can affect two layers of the skin, the epidermis (upper layer) and the dermis (deeper layer). All Chemical peels remove a controlled amount of skin cells from the epidermis. A stronger peel may also remove a small part of the dermis. This solution peels away damaged skin cells, allowing healthy skin to grow in their place.

Chemical peels are used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles or to address other skin concerns including hyperpigmentation, redness, acne and can help reduce the signs of aging on your face.

The process can cause swelling and peeling, which may take 7-14 days to subside, depending on the depth and intensity of the peel. It is important to keep the face dry and not shower or use face wash for the first 24 hours. Also, do not use makeup until the skin has healed.

Superficial peels are the safest for all skin types. However, any kind of chemical peel requires some downtime for recovery and may cause side effects, such as redness, skin peeling and sensitivity to sunlight.
