A chemical peel removes the outer layer of skin in the facial area. During the procedure, chemical solutions are applied to the facial skin in order to exfoliate the top layers of skin that may be old and damaged.
Your aesthetician will determine how to formulate these chemicals in order to meet the specific needs and goals of each patient. There are three levels of chemical peels light, medium or deep. This procedure stimulates new cell growth so that the skin appears brighter, smoother and more youthful.
A chemical peel is typically the choice for those who desire a minimally invasive way to improve the appearance of the skin. Results include:
- Reduce fine lines, wrinkles and freckles
- Repair sun damage
- Improve the appearance of acne, acne scars and other mild scarring
- Correct irregular pigmentation of the skin
- Smooth out rough or scaly patches
