A chemical peel involves the use of an acid solution to remove scarred or damaged outer skin layers. It is mainly used as a facial peel. Typical solutions applied are Glycolic (alpha hydroxyl) acid and TCA (trichloroacetic acid). Contrary to what many people think chemical peeling is a less invasive method and one of the oldest cosmetic treatments in the world. It is highly effective in eliminating facial wrinkles, blemishes, skin pigmentation and exfoliating dead skin. A glycolic peel is a fine solution for achieving full facial rejuvenation.
