Chemical Peels may help the following skin disorders: Hyperkeratosis, Photo Damage, Post Inflammatory Hyper-pigmentation, Fine Wrinkles, Deeper Wrinkles, and Sun Spots. The chemicals commonly used in peels are Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA), Phenol, Resorcinol, and Salicylic Acid. Concentrations of peels vary and are used by different types of providers. Aestheticians use 10-30% and Physicians use 40-70% depending on the severity of the skin condition being treated. Chemical peels use a chemical solution to improve and smooth the texture of the facial skin by removing its damaged outer layers. It is helpful for those individuals with facial blemishes, wrinkles and uneven skin pigmentation. Although a chemical peel may be performed in conjunction with a face lift, it is not a substitute for such surgery, nor will it prevent or slow the aging process.
