Frequently Asked Questions about Chemical Peel Treatments
What is it a Chemical Peel?
A chemical peel is a special chemical solution applied to the skin for a short period of time, removing the outermost layer of the skin or deeper skin layers.
There are three basic types of the chemical peels: superficial, medium and deep. They differ with regard to the depth to which they penetrate the skin.
What are the Indications for Chemical Peels?
Chemical Peels provide a good solution for:

- Reduction of fine lines and small wrinkles
- Reduction/removal of age spots
