Chemical peels can help with the fine lines, sun damage, dark pigment, and acne. They can help to give you better overall skin tone. We offer multiple different types of chemical peels at New Leaf Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Some peels are very mild and could be done on your lunch break. A deeper peel could have you peeling for 10 days or more. People who get peels more frequently usually have a less drastic peel than people getting peels for the first time.
