Why Do You Need Chemical Peel?

Chemical peels are used in a variety of skin conditions ranging from mild skin discoloration to ageing problems such as fine lines, wrinkles, freckles or age spots or left over scars of acne or skin that has been damaged by the sun or if you want to get rid of crow’s feet and/or shedding damaged skin cells.

Understanding Different Chemical Peels

Your skin cells undergo constant renewal within a 28-day time period. When you decide to undergo a chemical peel, it is important to consider several factors, such as your skin type, whether it is oily, normal, dry, or sensitive. Chemical peels are usually solutions of acid but their ability to infiltrate through the skin divides them into 3 classes which are usually superficial peel, medium peels and deep peels.
