What Issues Does a Chemical Peel Treat?
Chemical peels can help with a wide variety of skin conditions. Most people know that it can help with standard aging-related issues such as wrinkling, facial lines, and generally saggy skin. However, it’s also a frequently effective treatment against scaring (including acne scars), as well as melasma (skin discoloration) and some types of sun damage. It can also help to reduce the size of excessively large pores.
How Does it Work?
As the name suggests, this process uses chemicals to cause the upper layers of the skin to peel off over the course of approximately one week. Typically, the skin below looks more youthful and attractive once healing is complete.
