Chemical peels are used on your face to improve the texture and tone of the skin by helping to get rid of wrinkles, scars and other skin damage. Some chemical peels can also be used to improve the skin on your neck and hands to take away the damage caused by sun exposure, acne, or aging that leaves your skin wrinkled, uneven, scarred, or spotted.
What happens with a chemical peel?
A solution of different chemicals is spread over your skin. The chemical mixture causes your skin to peel off. It sounds scary, but once the new skin grows back, the new skin is smoother and less wrinkled than your old skin.
