Chemical Peel is a skin-resurfacing procedure in which a chemical solution is applied to the skin to peel away the top layers. The type of chemical peel used will depend on your current skin condition. A skin assessment is done as part of any aesthetic appointment.
Treated areas can take about one to seven days to full heal depending on the strength of the chemical used. New skin after a peel might be temporarily lighter or darker than normal. After a chemical peel the treated area may be red, tight, and slightly swollen, you may also feel some tingling.
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 peel off. The new skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin.
Chemical peels work best for people who are experiencing hyper-pigmentation, textured skin, discoloration, and acne scarring.
