A chemical peel is a skin treatment wherein a chemical solution is applied to the skin causing it to blister and peel. This treatment can be used on the face, neck and hands, and is used to improve the skin’s appearance as new skin is less wrinkled and smoother.
What are the symptoms?
Chemical peels are used to treat everything from wrinkles caused by sun damage and aging, to mild scars and certain types of acne. Other uses also include age spots, freckles, dry patches and damage to the outer layers of skin.
Who gets it?
Chemical peels are common for all age types. Younger men and women often use chemical peels to treat acne breakouts or simply to improve the look of their skin. Those with wrinkles or uneven complexions enjoy smoother, more even toned skin that looks healthier and younger.
