Chemical peels are used to treat various skin conditions and concerns such as wrinkles, acne scars, rough skin, age spots, and freckles.
During the treatment, a chemical solution is applied to the face which causes the damaged layer of skin to be removed.
The exact composition of the chemical peel depends on the issue and its severity. There are mild, medium and strong peels. They all can help with fine lines and acne and the strong ones are effective for deeper scars and wrinkles.
The results can be quite remarkable and long lasting (some up to 10 years).
Peels for sensitive skin have to be discussed with a qualified therapist before the treatment is conducted.
