Chemical peels are used to provide exfoliation, skin rejuvenation, and to improve general skin tone and health. Many chemicals used are acids derived from fruits and other foods. For example, glycolic acid is from sugar cane, lactic acid from sour milk, and citric acids from citrus fruits. A variety of skin problems, such as acne, brown discoloration, rosacea, and wrinkles, can benefit from peels. Just as there are a variety of skin problems, there are a variety of chemical peels in differing strengths and combinations. At Bay Area Laser Skin Care Center, we listen to your concerns and can advise the best treatment for your unique skin needs.
