Chemical Skin peels are used to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and enlarged pores. A chemical peel can improve the appearance of aged and sun-damaged skin. It will not remove wrinkles but it can minimise the look of wrinkles, reduce tan and scarring and reduce or eliminate acne scarring. I personally have done chemical peels on my face and I can't even begin to tell you how much it has changed my skin. A chemical peel involves decreasing the concentration of the skin's outermost layer, the epidermis, via a chemical solution. This process is painless and leaves no scars or marks on the skin. Chemical peels are mainly used to slow down the effects of aging on the skin and even out skin tone to give a more youthful look. Chemical peeling entails the removal of the outer layer of the skin.
