Chemical peels are used to:

  • improve or remove facial pigmentation
  • improve facial skin texture
  • improve acne scars ( superficial only )

It will not improve broken capillaries; it may potentially worsen them temporarily. It is not a treatment to lift or tighten the skin.

The pigmentation caused by sun damage, the contraceptive pill, pregnancy, darker skinned patients (type IV or darker) can all be improved by facial skin peels.

If the patient does not avoid the sun, picks at the skin, has recurrent acne, gets pregnant again, stays on the OCP, then the pigmentation can recur. It is much more likely to recur in darker skin patients.
