Chemical Peels



Chemical Peels

A chemical peel is a procedure that uses a chemical solution to remove the outer layers of the skin, revealing the more youthful skin underneath. This treatment can help reduce or improve fine lines, wrinkles, acne, scars, uneven skin tone and other skin imperfections. The depth of your peel and the type of skin condition treated will depend on the specific chemicals used.

A chemical peel, also known as chemexfoliation or dermapeeling, is a cosmetic treatment that uses a chemical solution to enhance the appearance of your skin. During the procedure, the chemical solution is applied to your skin, causing the outermost layers of your skin to peel off, thereby revealing newer and smoother skin. The treatment can result in fewer lines and wrinkles, a more even skin tone, and a brighter complexion.

Is a chemical peel good for all skin types?

Superficial peels can generally be used on all skin types. However, if you have a darker skin tone, you may have a higher risk of developing post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, which is a condition that can cause darkening of the skin after treatment. If you have a naturally darker skin tone, it's recommended to consult with your dermatologist for advice on less aggressive treatments that can help reduce the risk of hyperpigmentation.

Chemical peeling may also not be recommended if you:

1. Have a history of abnormal skin scarring.

2. Have extra coloring in your scars.

3. Have skin conditions or take medications that make your skin more sensitive.

4. Can't stay out of the sun for the healing period.
