A Chemical Peel is a procedure that involves a chemical solution that is applied to the skin which causes the outermost layer of skin to separate and peel off. The new, regenerated skin underneath is usually smoother in texture and more even in color than the old skin. There are various types of Chemical Peels each developed for specific indications such as wrinkles, acne, overall skin texture and skin tone. Some are mild and have no down time, others are stronger and have down time for up to one week. This procedure can be performed on the face, neck, chest, hands, arms, and legs.
