Everything You Need to Know About Chemical Peels for Restoring Youthful Skin

Also knows as a “derma-peel” or “chemexfoliation,” a chemical peel is a non-invasive, chemical-based solution applied to the skin to peel away its outer layers of damaged skin. Chemical peels have been around a while and continue to be one of the best, most effective ways to restore a youthful appearance to the skin without resorting to invasive surgery.

When working with chemicals on the skin, it is ultra-important to have a skilled dermatologist perform the procedure. While it might seem scary, this treatment is safe and effective in the hands of your highly trained DermSurgery Associates dermatologist.
