Chemical Peels consist of the application of a liquid chemical solution on the skin in order to cause a controlled lesion of the epidermis and dermis, eliminating the superficial cutaneous layers and improving the appearance and texture of the skin.
Depending on the depth of the lesion to be reached, there are several types of acid and alkaline formulations.
The deeper the technique, the better the results, however the greater the likelihood of complications, namely changes in skin color and scar areas. Thus, a more conservative approach results in faster healing with less risk and shorter recovery time.
The main benefits of chemical peels include:
Reduction of acne scars
Cellular skin renewal
Reduction of age spots or sun
Attenuation of wrinkles and expression lines
