Chemical peels are a quick, convenient, non-invasive skin treatment that can shed years off your skin. However, not all chemical peels are the same. Though they share similarities in terms of their application and the way they work, there are important differences between the wide varieties of chemical peels.

Typically, with qualified and experienced practitioner like Dr. Perhez Jaffer, the procedure will follow the same basic steps: A solution is brushed on the skin of the targeted areas, which works chemically to remove a micro- thin top layer of skin (the epidermis). Peels can treat skin blemishes like acne, fine lines, wrinkles, age spots and discoloration. Within a window of 15 minutes, the treatment will be done. Some patients may experience a warmth or light stinging sensation, but generally there is no down time or recovery period—you can resume your daily activities right away.
