MANNM: What Is A Chemical Facial Peel?

Linda Taylor, PAC


Skin resurfacing procedures have been indicated as part of a healthy skin regime for many decades.

Chemical skin peels have been shown to induce improvement in skin quality, texture and appearance.

The most common indications for a chemical peel would be for actinic keratosis (precancerous lesions), dark spots, wrinkles, acne scars and general photo-aging of the skin.

Peels can stimulate restorative and rejuvenating effects in the skin including the disposition of new collagen and elastin. Skin can look younger, tighter and clearer.

Light and medium skin types in general have the best results. This procedure takes 10 minutes in the office and the peel itself will take place over the next three to seven days. The Skin Peel Clinic is practiced by Linda Taylor, PAC.
