What Is A Chemical Peel?
A chemical peel is a cosmetic procedure that involves applying a chemical solution to the skin to remove the outer layers of dead skin cells and stimulate the growth of new skin cells. Chemical peels can improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, acne scars, age spots, and uneven skin tone and texture. The strength and type of chemical used in the peel will depend on the patient’s skin type and the specific concerns being addressed. Chemical peels can range from mild, superficial peels to deeper peels that require more downtime for recovery.
Am I A Good Candidate?
Generally, fair-skinned and light-haired patients are better candidates for chemical peels. If you have darker skin, you may also have good results, depending upon the type of problem being treated. Consult with your provider to ensure that you are recommended the best form of chemical peel.
What Are The Benefits of A Chemical Peel?
Chemical peels offer several benefits for the skin, including:
Improving skin texture: Chemical peels can help smooth out rough, uneven skin texture by removing the top layers of dead skin cells.
Reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles: Chemical peels can stimulate collagen production, which can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Treating acne: Chemical peels can help improve the appearance of acne-prone skin by reducing oil production and unclogging pores.
