Chemical Peels are used to improve skin texture, age spots, skin discoloration, fine lines, wrinkles and mild acne scars. This procedure stimulates new skin growth utilizing a chemical solution to remove the outer layers of the skin. The new skin is smoother, more even in color and less wrinkled. Chemical peels may produce redness and a peeling similar to a sunburn. This typically lasts between a few days to a few weeks, depending on the strength and depth of the chemical peel.
