Chemical peels can be used to improve skin on any part of the body. Chemical peels are commonly used to treat fine lines and wrinkles that are not too deep seated as well as the signs of sun damage. Deeper wrinkles and rhytides can be improved with chemical peels but often alternative approaches are required. Moderate acne scars and hyperpigmentation can also be treated with chemical peels. However, ice pick acne scars do not improve dramatically with chemical peels and often a combination approach is necessary. Following application of chemical peels to the skin the regenerative process that takes place results in an overall tightening of the skin as well as a certain amount of levelling depending upon the strength of the peel and how many layers of the skin it has removed. This results in smoothening of skin. Chemical peels are normally not a one off procedure and required on a semi regular basis to maintain a natural glow.
