Chemical peels are available in different strengths and compositions ,for different indications ,which include- Facial rejuvenation of the aging skin, acne and post acne scarring, melasma, fine lines and wrinkles, blotchy complexion, uneven skin tone etc. Before getting a chemical peel, some patients need to follow a pre-peel skin care plan for priming of the skin ,for 2 to 4 weeks. This can help improve results and reduce potential side effects. The peels can also be mixed and matched to give a custom designed regimen for individual patient’s concerns.
