Chemical peels are a method of resurfacing the skin.
By inducing a controlled wound to the skin, chemical peels replace part or all of the epidermis and induce collagen remodeling which helps to improve photo damage, wrinkles, pigment abnormalities, and scaring.
Conditions treatable with peels:
Â· Photo aging
Â· Seborrheic keratoses
Â· Actinic keratoses
