A chemical peel is a technique used to improve the appearance of the skin. A chemical peel is exactly what it sounds like: chemical solutions are applied to the damaged skin in order to cause the layers to peel away and reveal younger, healthier layers beneath. Once the dead layer is completely gone, the new skin heals and provides a healthy and glowing appearance. Wrinkles and sun damage are reduced and skin is much softer. Chemical peels are designed to accelerate the removal of old, dead skin cells at the surface of the skin to promote new cell growth, and can be used to treat a particular area (such as lines around the eyes or mouth), or all over the face, arms, hands and neck. Chemical peels are normally safest and most effective when performed on the face. Chemical facial peels can't alter the size of pores, improve sagging skin or remove deep scarring, but the treatment can reduce fine wrinkles, freckles and irregular pigmentation and remove sunspots and rough scaly patches on the patient’s skin. There are three types of chemical face peel available – superficial chemical peel, medium-depth chemical peel and deep chemical peel.
