Chemical Peels are solutions that are applied to the skin to improve sun damage, discoloration, wrinkles, and acne. Chemical peels may be subdivided based on depth of penetration into superficial, medium, and deep peels.
Superficial Peels gently remove a portion of the top layer of skin (epidermis) and are helpful in treating certain forms of acne, improving blotchy darkened skin, and for mild sun damage.
