Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are a chemical solution applied to the skin. The skin will typically blister and peel. The result is new skin that is typically smoother and less wrinkled.Chemical peels can be used to treat some signs of aging and also to treat some dermatological conditions. They can be used to treat acne and for some conditions that cause discoloration of the skin. Some types of chemical peels can also be used to treat pre-cancerous skin conditions called actinic keratoses.
