A light chemical peel might be the right choice if you have uneven pigment, dryness, acne or fine wrinkling. This kind of peel removes just the outer layer of skin. It is recommended as the starting point for people who are new to chemical peels.
Acne scars, deeper wrinkles and uneven skin color can all be treated with a medium chemical peel.
If you have deeper facial wrinkles, skin that's damaged by the sun, scars, areas that appear blotchy or even pre-cancerous growths. A deep chemical peel usually involves some sort of pretreatment for up to eight weeks. This will prepare your skin for the peel and speed the healing process.
