Reveal brighter, healthier skin! A chemical peel is a procedure to remove the top layer of skin using a chemical solution applied topically. The new skin is smoother and younger-looking. Chemical peels are typically used on the face to treat discoloration, wrinkles, and scars. They can be used alone or combined with other treatments.
Are Chemical Peels Painful?
Chemical peels vary in depth from light to medium to deep. Pain relief is not usually needed for light peels. With a medium peel, you may be given a painkiller and a sedative.
