Chemical peels utilize a mild chemical solution to exfoliate and remove the outermost damaged skin layers, resulting in smoothing of the skin surface. Often used in combination with microdermabrasion treatments, chemical peels help to reduce the depth of surface lines and wrinkles and smooth out rough skin. Treatment can be useful in diminishing surface scars and clearing of facial blemishes of acne. A typical facial peel takes 15-30 minutes. It is not uncommon to experience some temporary redness and flaking of the skin, although this usually does not interfere with any normal activities.
Improvements may be subtle at first with a fresher and healthier appearance of the skin. With additional treatments or combined with microdermabrasion, skin texture and appearance will continue to improve.
