A chemical peel involves using a solution applied to the skin to remove dead skin cells which stimulates the production of new skin cells. It unblocks pores, tightens the skin, reduces wrinkling, reduces superficial pigmentation and restores a more youthful appearance.

In many cases, a chemical peel is performed in conjunction with other simple office procedures like anti-wrinkles injection or a dermal filler.

Unlike laser resurfacing, chemical peels can be performed all over the body, including the backs of the hands and the chest or back. Most chemical peels are performed as outpatient procedures in the doctor’s office. Depending on your skin type and the desired results, your doctor may recommend a superficial, medium or deep chemical peel. Your doctor will select the most appropriate solution and apply the solution to the treatment area. After application , there may or may not be peeling of the outer layer of skin.

Chemical peels can be effectively used in treating issues like acne , hyperpigmentation , sun damaged skin as well as rejuvenation and replenishing dry and dehydrated skin.
