Chemical Peel: Purpose & Types
Chemical peels are used through the patient’s face and depending on how thick, or how strong the acids are, they will go to different layers of the skin.
Dr. Ricardo Castrellon, Medical Director of the Burn Center at South Miami Hospital, explains there are several types of chemical skin peels: the lunchtime chemical peel, intermediate peels and deeper chemical peels which is phenol.
The experts says depending on what effect people want, they go deeper and they’ll be more of a typical chemical burn.
Chemical peels will rejuvenate the texture of the skin, he adds.
