What are Chemical Peels?
Chemical peels remove damaged outer layers of skin on the face to smooth texture, reduce scarring, and remove blemishes to produce healthy, glowing skin. They are also a great adjunctive treatment for acne, to clear out pores. There are several types of chemical peels, ranging from mild to strong , and concentrations are tailored to each patient. Peels can be combined with other treatments, such as topical or laser, for a younger look.
About Chemical Peel Treatment:
During the chemical peel, the skin is cleansed and solution is applied, which may cause a brief stinging sensation. Patients can expect some redness, dryness, irritation, and, of course, varying amounts of peeling in the week following the procedure. Side effects are usually managed with moisturization. All peels require adequate sun protection for the new skin, but social downtime is not required.
