Chemical Peels are not as scary as they may sound. Chemical peeling is a centuries-old practice, rooted in ancient Egypt. Queen Cleopatra was famously known to bathe in sour milk to improve the look and texture of the skin. Today, we know that sour milk contains lactic acid, a naturally occurring AHA.
Periodic peeling of the skin helps to stimulate cellular activity, and is used for everything from age spots and pigmentation disorders to treatment of acne and enlarged pores. By stimulating collagen and elastin, increasing antioxidants and firming and hydrating your skin, fine lines and wrinkles disappear, and your overall appearance is rejuvenated.
In simple terms, chemical peels use a type of acid to break down the top layer, or layers, of skin to help diminish the look of fine lines, wrinkles and uneven skin tone. Chemical peels are good for treating fine lines and wrinkles, large pores, scarring, dark spots, and to help tighten the skin.
