Peels work to improve facial skin texture by removing the outer layers of skin and revealing the healthy young skin underneath.
Through a variety of chemical solutions that are customized for each patient’s needs, peels correct facial blemishes such as acne scars, smooth wrinkles and other texture issues, and treat uneven skin pigmentation. Peels can also be used to remove precancerous growths.
Recovery time depends on what kind of peel was done and how deep it was. With all types of peels, proper care of the skin after the peel is very important to speed healing, help results last longer, prevent infection and avoid color changes in the treated area caused by sun exposure.
