Chemical peels combine vitamins and acids to rejuvenate skin by removing the top, dead layer of skin, improving tone, texture, pigmentation, and overall skin health. It works to shrink pore size, correct fine lines and wrinkles, stimulate collagen and elastin production and improve acne and hyperpigmentation.
A light (superficial) chemical peel removes the outer layer of skin (epidermis). It’s used to treat fine wrinkles, acne, uneven skin tone and dryness. You may have a light peel every two to five weeks.
A medium chemical peel removes skin cells from the epidermis and from portions of the upper part of your middle layer of skin (dermis). It’s used to treat wrinkles, acne scars and uneven skin tone. You may need to repeat the procedure to achieve or maintain the desired result.
A deep chemical peel removes skin cells even deeper. Your doctor might recommend one for deeper wrinkles, scars or precancerous growths. You won’t need repeat to achieve the full effect.
