A chemical peel is a procedure for enhancing the skin appearance on the face, neck, and hands. The skin is treated with a chemical solution that results in exfoliation and which in turn peels and falls off. The new, regenerated skin is usually softer, smoother and much less wrinkled than the old skin.
- How long do the effects of a Chemical Peel last? The effects of a Superficial Chemical Peel might last up to a year. Protection from the sun’s damaging rays, on the other hand, can extend the life of this new skin. Moderate and deep skin peels are more effective since it penetrates deeper into the skin, resulting in effects that persist for years.
- How do they work? Chemicals are applied to the skin, causing controlled harm to the dead tissues. The body then heals these minor wounds through natural processes, causing the old skin to peel off and the new skin to be smoother and wrinkle-free to a large extent.
