Chemical peeling is a non-invasive aesthetic treatment used to improve the appearance of the skin, smooth wrinkles and fine lines, treat acne, diminish blemishes and scars, and achieve a more even and radiant complexion. This procedure uses a combination of carefully selected chemicals to exfoliate and renew the top layer of the skin.
During a chemical peel, an esthetician applies a chemical solution to the skin, which may contain acids such as glycolic, salicylic, or trichloroacetic acid. These acids work by dissolving dead cells and stimulating skin regeneration, resulting in fresher, smoother, and rejuvenated skin.
The intensity and depth of the chemical peel can vary according to the individual needs of each person. Chemical peels can be superficial, medium or deep, depending on the concentration of the solution and the application time. A professional will evaluate your skin type and aesthetic goals to determine the most appropriate type of chemical peel for you.
