Chemical peels provide many benefits by removing dead skin cells from the top layer of your skin. They are used to restore a youthful, vibrant appearance to wrinkly, blotchy, or sun-damaged skin. There are several different levels of chemical face peels, which are light, medium, and deep. A light chemical peel is used to improve acne scars and skin texture as well as reducing the effects of sun damage. Medium chemical peels slough off dead skin to reveal a new layer of skin in fewer than seven days after the treatment. When you opt for a deep chemical peel, you can expect a new layer of skin in less than ten days.
