Can chemical peels make skin worse?

The simple answer is no. A chemical skin peel is a treatment used to improve the look, texture, and tone of the face. It works by applying an acid to lower the skin’s pH levels this causes the dead skin cells to disconnect and peel off from the healthy skin – exfoliating and stimulating new skin cell growth. This reveals smoother and more radiant, rejuvenated skin and complexion.

In most cases a peel will make the skin better than it was, providing the immediate effect of bright, beautiful, and radiant skin. It may take more than one single chemical peel to get more significant results. This treatment can be used to treat any textural skin issues you’re having such as wrinkles, inflamed acne, or pigmentation. Check out our tips for care after a skin peel:
