What are Chemical Peels?

Chemical peels try to rebuild the skin’s surface and recover its function by applying special chemicals. These are popularly used to remove damaged cells on the face, neck, or hands.

3 Kinds of Chemical Peels

Light Chemical Peel

Light chemical peels focus on the surface layers of the skin to peel away surface-layer imperfections. Utilizing these peels can help address shallow problems like acne scars, sun damage, dryness, uneven skin color, and fine wrinkles. Patients may need more than one treatment to maintain results.

Medium Chemical Peel

While light peels penetrate the epidermis, the medium ones drop into the upper and middle dermal layers to remove deeper-set concerns such as scars, wrinkles, uneven shade, and pigmentation. Recovery for these peels can be longer, ranging from 7 to 10 days. Multiple sessions may be required for comprehensive results.

Deep Chemical Peel

The deep chemical peel is recommended for the elimination of moderate to deep lines, acne scars, blotchy skin symptoms, sunburns, and other similar skin problems. Deep peels might require just one session; however, they usually require the longest recovery period.

The Uses and Benefits of Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are multi-beneficial and can simultaneously remove problems while thoroughly smoothening rough surfaces. Patients may undergo a peel for countless reasons. Whether the concerns are medical or cosmetic, chemical peels may be a valid solution.
