Skin care tip 3Chemical Peels

Chemical Peels are great for a wide range of people because you are able to customize what you would like to treat. Chemical peels can reach different layers of the skin, to treat different types of skin conditions – this of course will be determined by your dermatologist after your initial visit. The different types of peels include:

  • Superficial – A mild chemical peel that works on the top layer of skin, good for treating acne, rosacea, and discoloration of the skin.
  • Medium – Goes a little deeper into the skin and is good for sun damaged skin and more aggressive discoloration.

Generally after a chemical peel you can experience some redness, similar a sunburn that will usually go away within a week.
