Chemical peels remove damaged outer layers of skin to make skin appear smoother and brighter, reduce scarring, and minimize blemishes. Ranging from superficial to deep, the strength of each peel is tailored to the patient. Peels can be combined with other procedures, such as microdermabrasion, for additional skin improvement.
Chemical Peel Procedure
Some chemical peels are neutralized after remaining on the skin for a few minutes. Others are self-neutralizing and remain on the skin after leaving the office. Your clinician will go over the details of your procedure with you during consultation.
