Chemical peels are used to treat a wide variety of skin conditions ranging from irregular pigmentation and acne to poor skin texture and fine lines. In its simplest terms, a chemical peel is a treatment that uses selected acids to exfoliate the skin and create rapid, visible results. Treatments range from extremely mild peels that can be done over your lunch hour to more aggressive salicylic peels that are used to treat moderate to severe acne.
