What is a chemical peel?

A chemical peel is a facial treatment used to improve the texture of the skin by applying a chemical solution that causes the shedding of old damaged surface cells. Peels are usually left on the skin for only a few minutes, depending on the strength. The solution is then neutralized and washed off. Mild redness, stinging and irritation may occur. There is little to no recovery time with mild treatments. Mild peeling may occur for a few days following treatment.

Why are chemical peels necessary?

The skin has a normal cellular turnover in which older cells are replaced by newer skin cells. This turnover rate gradually declines with increasing age and sun exposure, leaving behing the appearance of older skin. The skin starts to produce binding properties that hold the dead skin cells together. Chemical peels weaken these binding properties and stimulate new growth of skin underneath. This allows the outer layer of dead skin cells to be removed gradually.

What are the benefits of a chemical peel?

Chemical peels are beneficial for the treatment of fine lines, dryness and acne. Peels react with the outer layer of the epidermis to reduce or eliminate the apperance of a number of skin imperfections and conditions, thus revealing a healthier and fresher appearance. Multiple treatments may be necessary to see the desired results.
