Chemical Peels

What is Chemical Peel?

Chemical peel is a general classification for a number of chemical treatments used to exfoliate and rejuvenate the skin. Typically, during a chemical peel nothing actually "peels" off. A chemical solution is applied to the skin and works by dissolving the upper layers of the skin. As the tissue is dissolved, a wound is created on the skin which stimulates the body's healing response, causing new tissue to emerge.
Some chemical peels are so strong as to be able to remove the whole surface. These forms of peels have generally been replaced by laser treatment, as laser provides a greater and more precise level of control to the practitioner. Most peels today are less destructive and more superficial. There are a variety of different types of chemical skin peels, as there are a variety of chemicals, each used with their own properties. With a chemical peel, you get some tightening of the skin, improvements of pre-cancerous and brown spots, and a general resurfacing of the skin. .
