What is a chemical peel?
A chemical peel smooths your skin by using a chemical solution to remove the damaged outer layers of your skin. Chemical peels are usually used on the face, but they can also be used on your neck and hands. A chemical peel is a minimally invasive way to improve the appearance of your skin. A chemical peel can improve:

– Acne and acne scars
– Liver and age spots
– Wrinkles and fine lines
– Freckles
– Skin pigmentation irregularity
– Sun-damaged skin
– Scars
– Rough skin and scaly patches

Is a chemical peel right for me?
If you have any of the following, you may not be a good candidate for chemical peeling:

– Abnormal pigmentation
– A history of abnormal skin scarring
– Asian or Afro-Caribbean skin
– Warts on the face
– Used certain acne treatments within the last year
– Red hair and pale, freckled skin
