Chemical peels remove damaged outer layers of skin on the face to smooth texture, reduce scarring, and remove blemishes to produce healthy, glowing skin. There are many varieties of chemical peels ranging from gentle to medium depth peels. You may experience peeling or no peeling of the skin, depending on what peel you choose.
