Improved Skin Tone & Texture

A chemical peel is a cosmetic skin treatment that involves the application of an acid-based solution to the skin. The acid solution is designed to remove the topmost layer of skin, which helps to improve the appearance of skin blemishes such as wrinkles, scarring, and age spots. Chemical peels can also be used to treat certain skin conditions, such as acne and hyperpigmentation.

The most commonly used acid for chemical peels is glycolic acid, which is derived from sugar cane. Other acids used for chemical peels include trichloroacetic acid, salicylic acid, lactic acid, and phenol. Each type of acid has a different strength and is used to treat different skin conditions.

The chemical peel process begins with the application of the acid solution to the skin. The acid solution is left on the skin for a few minutes before it is washed off. Depending on the type of peel and the strength of the acid solution, the process may take anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour.
