Chemical peels are also known as chemexfoliation or derma-peels. Chemical peels use chemicals and acids with different intensities and concentrations to remove the dead skin cells and reveal new, glowing skin.

Patients with fair skin and hair are ideal candidates. However, dark patients can also benefit depending on their skin condition. You can learn more about chemical skin-peeling treatment by visiting

Any part of the body can be treated with chemical peels. They are most commonly used to treat the skin, neck, and hands.

Conditions that require chemical peeling:

  • Sun damage can cause hyperpigmentation
  • Melasma
  • Hyperpigmentation post-inflammatory
  • Mild scarring
  • acne
  • dull skin

People with any of these conditions can be deemed suitable for chemical peels.

To remove all dirt and oils, the skin must be thoroughly cleaned before the procedure. Protect your eyes and hair with one or more of the required chemicals before you apply any chemical to your skin.

Chemical peeling produces a controlled, irritated wound that triggers the skin's inflammatory response. The skin's inflammatory response causes it to shed the old stratum corneum, allowing new cells to replace it.

Your doctor might advise you to discontinue taking certain medications a few days prior to your appointment. Your doctor may ask you to prepare your skin by using Tretinoin and glycolic acid. It is important that you apply sunscreen every day after the peeling. Sun damage can be more severe than ever.
