Understanding Chemical Peels

A chemical peel is a popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure that uses a chemical solution to remove the damaged outer layers of the skin, promoting new skin growth and enhancing skin tone and texture. Chemical peels can effectively address a wide range of skin concerns, including fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin tone.

Types of Chemical Peels

Depending on the skin concern and depth of treatment, chemical peels can be classified into three types:

  • Superficial or Lunchtime Peel: Uses mild acids to penetrate only the outer layer of skin to gently exfoliate.
  • Medium Peel: Penetrates the outer and middle layers of skin to remove damaged skin cells.
  • Deep Peel: Penetrates the mid to lower layer of skin and offers the most dramatic, long-lasting results.

Benefits of Chemical Peels

Chemical peels provide several skin-enhancing benefits:

  • Improves the skin’s color, clarity, tone, and texture.
  • Stimulates new collagen and healthy skin cell growth, resulting in a radiant complexion.
  • Reduces discoloration caused by sun damage.
  • Helps clear up breakouts.
  • Smooths away the look of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Increases skin’s hydration.
  • Addresses visible skin imperfections and superficial scars
