What Is A Chemical Peel

It is a technique used to improve the appearance of the skin on the face, neck, hands or décolleté. A chemical solution is applied to the skin that causes it to exfoliate and eventually peel off. The new, regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin.

How Do Chemical Peels Work?

Chemical solutions are carefully applied to your skin which causes the top layer to separate or peel over several days. It is important to never peel the skin as this may lead to hyperpigmentation and scarring.
