Chemical peels, are cosmetic treatments performed on facial skin, used as an anti-aging solution to rejuvenate the skin. Chemical peels fix skin texture, like fine lines, and color, and spots caused by sun damage.

Chemical peel treatments is to restore fresher skin that has more color, smoothness, and better tone. The face peel helps reduce the appearance of skin discoloration, usually in the form of liver spots and age spots caused by UV-ray damage. Skin discoloration may also be in the form of other conditions, such as melasma spots, or unsightly birthmarks and moles, or from the skin’s historical battle with acne. Acne scarring also presents textural issues that can be treated with chemical peels. Other treatable textural-skin conditions are fine lines stemming from the eyes— and around the mouth. The skin condition and patient objectives will determine what acids are used in the peel.
