Chemical peels can improve the skin’s appearance. In this treatment, a chemical solution is applied to the skin, which makes it “blister” and eventually peeled off. The new skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin. Chemical peel improves skin texture and tone and lessens the appearance of fine wrinkles. The results are quick and get better with every peel. If you have a medium chemical peel, treated skin will be noticeably smoother. After a deep chemical peel, you’ll see a dramatic improvement in the look and feel of treated areas.
During a chemical peel, most people feel a burning sensation but that lasts about five to ten minutes, followed by a stinging sensation. Putting cool compresses on the skin may ease that stinging.
Chemical peels can be done on the face, neck, or hands. They can be used to:
- Reduce fine lines under the eyes and around the mouth
- Treat wrinkles caused by sun damage and aging
- Improve the appearance of mild scars
- Treat certain types of acne
- Reduce age spots, freckles, and dark patches due to pregnancy or taking birth control pills
- Improve the look and feel of skin thus providing you with radiant and glowing skin.
- Smoothing away the look of fine lines and wrinkles
- Increasing hydration of the skin
- Addressing visible skin imperfections and superficial scars
Enabling skincare products used at home to be more effective because a peel can remove several layers of skin build-up and congestion, allowing products to penetrate deeper into the skin
