Chemical peels are an extremely common skin treatment. According to RealSelf, 93% of patients who underwent this treatment would recommend it. Chemical peels prompt a gradual peel of the treated area resulting in new, smoother skin.
Though primarily for the face, chemical peels can be applied to the neck, chest, and the backs of the hands as well.

Pregnancy, breastfeeding, people with dark skin tone or prone to hyper or hypopigmentation are not suitable. However, we recommend having a consultation and exploring possible alternatives.
There are two different methods of exfoliation, microdermabrasion is physical exfoliation and chemical peels are chemical exfoliation with the latter being suited for most skin types. A superficial peel is most comparable to a microdermabrasion but a medium depth peel can achieve deeper layers of the skin and address issues stemming from below the skin’s surface, like wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and scars.
