Chemical Peel


 

What is a Chemical Peel?

A chemical peel is one of the least invasive ways to improve the appearance of your skin. Sun exposure, acne, or just getting older can leave your skin tone uneven, wrinkled, spotted, or scarred. A chemical peel can help your skin look smoother and younger. It uses a chemical solution to smooth the texture of your skin by removing the damaged outer layers. Although chemical peels are used mostly on the face, they can also be used to improve the skin on your neck and hands.

A chemical peel can help improve:

  • Acne or acne scars
  • Age and liver spots
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Freckles
  • Irregular skin pigmentation
  • Rough skin and scaly patches
  • Scars
  • Sun-damaged skin

A chemical peel cannot:

  • Treat deep facial lines
  • Tighten loose or sagging skin
  • Remove broken capillaries
  • Change pore size
  • Remove deep scars

You may not be a good candidate for chemical peeling if you have:

  • A history of abnormal skin scarring
  • Abnormal pigmentation
  • Afro-Caribbean or Asian skin
  • Facial warts
  • Red hair and pale freckled skin
  • Used certain acne treatments within the last year
