Chemical Peels for Younger Looking Skin

As we get older, deeper wrinkles and pigmentation issues can be treated with chemical peels, which allow for control of the depth of the treatment, providing a safer, easier treatment. The doctors of Cosmetic Medicine and Surgery at Mercy in Baltimore provide anti-aging treatment options, including chemical peels.

What is a Chemical Peel and how does it work to improve the skin?

A chemical peel is a chemical solution that is applied to the skin to improve the skin’s appearance. When the chemical peel is placed on the skin, the skin will blister and peel off. The fresh new skin typically is smoother and has fewer wrinkles than the old skin.
