Chemical peels have several benefits, including increased collagen production and reduction in pore size, excess surface oil and visible signs of aging. Chemical peels are an effective treatment for hyperpigmentation (dark spots) and acne.
Chemical peels are brief procedures that require very little recovery time, although multiple treatments are usually necessary to achieve the best results. Many chemical peels use a combination of different acids tailored to treat the patient’s condition.
Chemical peels are divided into three types, but many of the deeper peels are now not used much due to the downtime and have been superceded by lasers such as Erbium and CO2 lasers.
