While loosening dead skin cells and stimulating collagen beneath the skin it plumps fine lines and scars and helps smooth wrinkles and correct pigment problems. Certain chemical peels also help to treat acne and acne scars. There are three main types of chemical face peels; light, medium, and deep: The light chemical peel improves acne, oiliness associated with acne, acne scars, skin texture, and reduces the effects of sun damage. light peels also serve well for maintenance in between medium to deep peels.
the medium chemical peel improves acne, smoothes fine surface wrinkles, and corrects pigment problems such as age spots. The deep chemical peel helps treat sun-damaged skin, eliminates deep, coarse wrinkles, and can remove pre-cancerous growths.
