Chemical peels are a very popular anti-aging option. Sun exposure and age can leave your skin tone uneven, wrinkled and spotted.
All chemical peels use a solution applied to the skin to remove the damaged outer layers consisting of the epidermis and the part of the dermis at different levels.
Dr. Verga recommends a chemical peel only to patients with advanced changes or when other treatments are not indicated.
Patients should understand that because the texture of their skin will be changed, it will most likely become more sensitive to the sun. They will need to protect their skin to prevent discolorations.
