Chemical Peels are a popular skin treatment that is performed to improve the quality of the skin and reduce common, unwanted signs of aging. Chemical Peels come in a variety of strengths (light, medium, and deep) which correspond to how deeply the peel works. The peels can specifically be used to improve some types of acne, large pores, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, as well as sun damage, freckles, and pre-skin cancers. The chemical peel can also rejuvenate the refresh skin that is discolored, dry, or dull. The peels are applied to the skin and remove the damaged outer layer while revealing the fresh, new, healthy skin below.
The light peels are more gentle and may be performed on a lunch break, while the medium and deep peels require a longer recovery period.
