Facial chemical peels are a desired facial technique used to revamp and enhance the appearance of the facial skin. A chemical peel uses a chemical solution to smooth the texture of the skin by removing outer layers of damaged skin to reveal fresh, more vibrant skin underneath. Patients are often highly interested in chemical peels because they are one of the least invasive ways to improve the appearance of the skin.
Chemical peels can be used on the face, neck, and hands to create a more polished and youthful appearance.
It is important for patients to understand that chemical peels are not done to treat deep facial lines, tighten loose skin, or even change pore size. However, many patients do see remarkable changes in their skin’s appearance and find that the more often they have a facial peel done, the more long-term effects they see.
A chemical peel can help to improve the following:
- Age spots
- Acne or acne scars
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Irregular skin pigmentation
- Rough, scaly patches
- Sun damage
Chemical peels are popular among women in their thirties who are trying to combat the first signs of aging, yet who do not need or desire to undergo a more invasive procedure. Chemical peels can be performed as an isolated procedure, or it can be combined with other cosmetic procedures for women who are looking to achieve dramatic results.
