What is a facial peel?
A facial peel is a cosmetic, chemical treatment that can be performed at by or with a dermatologist to help lessen the appearance of blemishes, freckles, age spots, light scarring, and any number of other skin irregularities on the face. Also called chemical peels, facial peels can improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and give new life to sun-damaged skin.

- Light (glycolic acid or salicylic acid) chemical peels can improve rough, dry skin, as well as uneven pigmentation. They can also improve the texture of sun-damaged skin and help control acne.
- Medium (TCA) chemical peels are best for people who want to smooth out fine wrinkles, remove superficial blemishes, and even out skin pigmentation.
- Deep (phenol) chemical peels can remove major blotching, such as that caused by aging, sun exposure, or birth control pills. Deep peels can also be used to smooth deeper wrinkles. Deep skin peels are only used on the face.
- Acne chemical peels help to control acne and smooth acne scars. As with cosmetic chemical skin peels, an acne chemical peel can also reduce or eliminate wrinkles and improve skin pigmentation.
