Don’t let the term “chemical peel” scare you away. A chemical peel is a treatment used to exfoliate dead skin cells and stimulate new skin cells to come to the surface, making your skin appear healthier and more youthful. If you’ve ever wondered how some of your favorite celebrities seem to look so flawless all the time they likely owe their glow to chemical peels. Many people are looking for a simple way to improve their skin without surgery or a facelift. Aging and sun-damaged skin may develop redness, blemishes, facial veins and pigment, deep wrinkles, cancerous or precancerous lesions or spotting. The chemical peel procedure uses a chemical solution, to ‘peel’ away the top layers of the epidermis in order to improve conditions such as acne, irregular pigmentation or wrinkles. Chemical peels have been in use for a number of years and are a highly popular way to improve the texture and look of skin.
