What Is a Chemical Peel?

A chemical peel is a technique aimed to enhance the skin’s appearance on the face, neck, or hands. It involves the application of a chemical solution that initiates the exfoliation process, leading to the outer layer of skin peeling off. This reveals new skin beneath that is typically smoother and shows fewer wrinkles compared to the older skin it replaces.

What are the benefits of Chemical Peels?

  • Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Minimize acne scars
  • Even out your skin tone and texture
  • Target hyperpigmentation
