Chemical peels are a method of regenerating and resurfacing the skin by inducing a controlled wound to the skin.
It removes the top layers of skin to help induce collagen re-modelling and improve sun-damaged skin, skin pigmentation problems, wrinkles, skin texture, and the overall appearance of the skin. There are several types of chemical peels each suited to different skin problems and types.
Chemical peels also vary in strength and are classified as superficial, medium, and deep according to the level of skin they reach.
The key determinants to which chemical peel is right for you are; the degree of the skin problem/ageing/sun-damage, the skin type/colour, the amount of improvement you would like to achieve, and the amount of recovery or downtime that is acceptable by you.
