Chemical peels are used for skin rejuvenation, acne, scarring and pigmentation on the skin. The nature of the skin condition and skin type determine the suitability of skin peels. Not all chemical peels are suitable for all skin types.
Superficial and medium depth peels such as mandelic, glycolic , salicylic and TCA are the most commonly used chemical peels. However, for pigmentation problems such as melasma, I also use a combination of azelaic, mandelic, weak TCA, phenol, arginine and Retinol. Sun avoidance is very important before and after ANY chemical peel.
