A chemical peel is a cosmetic treatment designed to vastly improve the tone and texture of your skin, and reduce imperfections & removes the outer layers of damaged skin. As the chemical solution deeply exfoliates your skin and dissolves the damaged tissue, a wound forms on the skin. This causes fresh, healthy skin cells to be brought to the surface. A chemical peel can treat many different skin concerns, including fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, precancerous skin lesions and mild scarring. While the face is a common treatment area to be treated with a chemical peel, it is also effective when performed on your chest, neck, back, hands, arms and legs.
