The chemical peel is a popular treatment used to remove damage on the outer layer of the skin. There are different types or strengths of chemical peels, the stronger the peel, the deeper it penetrates into the layers of the skin, and the longer the recovery. Light chemical peels make a more subtle rejuvenation to the outermost layer of the skin and can help to create a clean, healthy glow. Light chemical peels can help to reduce the appearance of acne, uneven skin tone, dry skin, and fine wrinkles. Medium chemical peels go a bit deeper into the dermis (middle layer of the skin) to help reduce the appearance of acne scarring, uneven skin tone, and wrinkles. Deep chemical peels go into the lower dermal layer of the skin to reduce the appearance of more substantial wrinkles, and various type of scarring.
