Chemical peels use a chemical solution to remove the top layers of the skin. This destruction of weathered and damaged surface skin cells promotes regeneration and resurfacing with healthy new skin. They may reduce uneven skin tone and superficial facial blemishes, and to some extent may reduce fine wrinkles. Chemical peels vary in strength form superficial to deep, according to the amount of surface skin cells that are stripped away.
The number and frequency of peels will depend on the skin type and the amount of weathering of the skin. Whichever form of peel is used, sensible sun smart measures must be continued, including regular use of adequate sunscreen.
Four different types of peels are available at Brunswick Dermatology.
