Health Tip: Chemical Peel
-- A chemical peel can reduce signs of aging and treat a variety of skin conditions, says the American Academy of Dermatology.
Acne, discoloration, freckles and sun-damaged skin are some of the many conditions commonly treated with a peel.
After treatment, patients often see smoother skin, a brighter complexion, a more-even skin tone and fewer wrinkles.
However, before considering treatment, it is important to remember that chemical peels are considered cosmetic treatments, so insurance may not cover the cost.
