What to Expect
Chemical peels can be used to treat the skin on the face, neck and hands. This skin rejuvenation procedure uses a chemical solution to remove the damaged outer layers of your skin, leaving behind smoother, younger looking skin.
Chemical peels can help treat and improve the appearance of:
- Acne and acne scars
- Age spots
- Sun damage
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Uneven skin pigmentation
- Rough skin
- Skin discoloration
During the treatment, your skin is cleansed and a chemical solution is applied. After time is allowed for the solution to soak into the skin, it is then washed off and neutralized. Proper skin care after a chemical peel will help the results last longer.
For best long-term results, you may choose to have regular, ongoing chemical peel treatments. You may also use chemical peels in conjunction with microdermabrasion for a more dramatic overall effect.
The most common side effect after the procedure is redness of the skin in the treated area. You may also feel mild stinging while the solution is soaking into your skin.
