Chemical peel is exactly what it says – peeling of the skin using a chemical. A chemical peel removes the top most layers of the skin. This refreshes the skin, removes sun damage, reduce freckles and irregular pigmentation. It also reduces fine wrinkles. It is the safest and most effective way to resurface the skin.
There are several types of peels, each indicated for different types and degrees of skin problems.
Only a qualified cosmetic dermatologist can determine which type of skin peel is appropriate for you. A doctor must consider several factors including patient's medical history, the skin condition to be treated and desired results.
