Chemical peels can improve the look and feel of your skin. They are used to treat fine lines, wrinkles, mild scars, sun damage, age spots, freckles and dark patches (melasma). Chemical peels can be done on the face, chest, neck, and hands. You can treat the whole face or treat a localized area, such as under the eyes or around the mouth.
There are superficial, medium grade and deep peels. The superficial peels focus on treating the top layer of skin or stratum corneum.
