About Chemical peels

Chemical Peels

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are cosmetic treatments that can be applied to the face, hands, and neck. They’re used to improve the appearance or feel of the skin. During this procedure, chemical solutions will be applied to the area being treated, which reasons the skin to exfoliate and eventually peel off.

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 peels off. The new skin is generally smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin. Once this happens, the new skin underneath is often smoother, appears less wrinkled, and may have less damage.
