Chemical peels are helpful for wrinkles, light acne scarring and irregular pigmentation such as freckles and age spots. Chemical Peels exfoliate the dead surface cells, smooth fine lines, produce a more even tone, and reduce or eliminate freckles, sun spots and other damage from sun exposure. Pre-cancerous conditions such as keratoses (thick, rough, reddish growths) also respond well to this procedure.
After thoroughly cleansing the skin, a small applicator is used to apply the chemical solution to an area of the face. Excess solution is removed and the procedure is repeated on other areas.
The amount of improvement varies and depends upon the initial condition of the patient's skin. Significant improvement of damaged skin has been achieved, which can produce dramatic results.
