Chemical peels can rejuvenate your skin by peeling off old skin and replacing it with smoother and less wrinkled “new” skin. During the treatment, a chemical solution is applied to your face, neck, or hands. The chemical solution causes the skin to exfoliate and eventually peel off.
3 basic types of chemical peels are…
#1. Superficial or lunchtime peel: Only the outer layer of skin is penetrated using a mile acid solution. Commonly, this type of chemical peel is used for improving the appearance of mild skin discoloration and rough skin. In addition, it can be used to refresh the face, hands, or neck. The healing period following a superficial chemical peel is about 1-7 days.
#2. Medium peel: Outer and middle layers of skin is penetrated during a medium chemical peel. This treatment removes damages skin cells and can improve age spots, wrinkles, freckles, fine lines, and moderate skin discoloration. In addition, medium chemical peels can be used to treat some precancerous skin and smooth rough skin. The healing period following a medium peel is about 7-14 days.
#3. Deep peel: The middle layer of the skin is deeply penetrated during a deep chemical peel. This treatment can remove damaged skin cells and remove freckles, shallow scars, age spots, and moderate lines. Deep peels are only performed on the face and can produce the most drastic results compared to the other types of peels. The healing period following a deep peel is about 14-21 days.

Examples of drug and behavioral addictions include alcoholism, marijuana addiction, amphetamine addiction, cocaine addiction, nicotine addiction, opioid addiction, food addiction, video game addiction, gambling addiction, and sexual addiction.
