About Chemical Peel

A Chemical Peel is an effective treatment option for a variety of skin issues: reducing fine lines, wrinkles, mild scarring, age spots, sun damage, blemishes, or improving overall skin appearance. Generally, there are three types of Chemical Peels, ranging from Light, Medium to Deep - the severity of peel, therefore the strength of chemical used, is dependent on what skin symptoms are being treated. Acids and chemical solutions of Alphahydroxy Acids (AHA), Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA), and Phenol cause layers of skin to be exfoliate chemically and new, regenerated skin is typically smoother and has better texture. The more severe the peel, the more downtime may be required for new skin to regenerate but results are more dramatic.
