One of the easiest, most efficient and most affordable ways to enjoy immediate gratification of a fresh and healthier look is chemical peels. Peels are great at revitalizing and rejuvenating the face, neck, and hands. The treatment exfoliates the dead skin cells and, gently removes them from the top skin layer.
Chemical peels are called so because different kinds of acids and other chemicals are used to perform exfoliation. Not all chemical peels are alike; they are classified based on how deep they go in the skin.
The most gentile is the surface peel which doesn’t go deep in your skin and only affects the top layer. Surface peels are good for younger skin and rarely result in any downtime. For more mature skin, medium and deep chemical peels are recommended. They affect all thick dermis layer right down to the basal membrane. They require some downtime and can only be performed by a licensed, experienced medical provider.
