So how exactly do chemical peels work? Is it for everyone? If you’ve been thinking about having one here at our clinic, read on below to figure out if it’s exactly the right procedure you’re looking for!

How Chemical Peels Work

By and large, chemical peels make use of a chemical solution to reduce the appearance of blemishes and scarring while improving the appearance of your skin tone at the same time. The outermost layers of your skin are carefully peeled off for that radiant and healthy appearance.

Chemical peels vary in strength, depending on the specific problems you want to improve on. In addition, the length of time it remains on your skin may also vary from one individual to another.

Generally, you should think about having chemical peels if you have the following concerns:

  • superficial fine lines and wrinkles
  • sun-damaged skin
  • skin discolorations, spots, freckles, and/or blotchiness
  • rough skin and scaly patches
  • uneven skin tone
  • appearance of precancerous skin growths

When Not to Choose Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are not really an ideal choice if you have the following concerns:

  • deep facial lines and folds
  • sagging, loose skin
  • facial veins or broken capillaries
  • deep scars
