How do chemical peels work?

Chemical peels reduce the appearance of acne scars, pigmentation, lines and wrinkles. When applied to your face, neck and chest, it peels away the dull top layer of your skin and its many blemishes.

Your skin has a natural exfoliating tendency. This means that healthy, normal skin will flake off old skin cells and begin to expose new, healthy cells beneath. When you apply a chemical peel, you distress the outer layer of skin and speed up natural exfoliation.

As you remove your chemical peel, your aged skin cells slough off. When this is complete, you’ll expose your new healthy skin cells that were hidden underneath the old cells. These cells heal quickly and expose a younger, healthier skin to the outer world. Your skin will appear smoother, healthier, and younger to the outside observer.

There are many chemical peels available to you. Please consult your dermatological provider (or your beauty consultant) to see which product is right for your age, lifestyle, and skin type.
