What are the types of chemical peels available?

We offer two main types of peels – superficial peels and medium peels. Superficial peels are light, mild peels. They remove the outer layer of cells and are used to treat fine lines, sun damage, areas of dryness, uneven pigmentation and moderate acne scars.Medium peels (also known as TCA skin peels because they contain trichloroacetic acid) penetrate further into the skin. They are used to treat wrinkles, acne scars, sun damage and uneven skin tone. This type of peel is used to treat problem areas on the hands, forearms and neck as well as the face.
