A clean, lineless, spotless, flawless skin is lying just beneath the top layer of your dead skin — and dermatologists have found that this classic treatment is the fastest way there. Want to know what is it?

Celebrities wearing satin slip dresses on the red carpet. Victoria Secret models killing the runway with white beautiful wings. And then there’s this ‘90s revival for you: the chemical peel. 

After being overshadowed by the new skin-resurfacing lasers in the early 2000s, this classic treatment is back on top in dermatologists’ offices. Well, who doesn’t get excited by the possibility of having that celebrity glow we all muse about?

Experts at Bodytonic Clinic say that Chemical Peel not only casts off dull surface cells, but also improves fine lines, acne, discolouration, and more. Not just that! It works wonders on all skin types and colours.

Everybody deserves the confidence that comes from feeling good in their skin, and the treatment for that is a chemical peel. Need more information before you try it out? Take a look below at 7 benefits of chemical peels.

Not all chemical peels are the same. Some treat skin surface issues while others like glycolic peel treatment is great for concerns originating in the deeper layers of the skin like hyperpigmentation. Glycolic peels also help restore the lost moisture and elasticity of the skin. 

You must consult a licensed practitioner to determine which type of chemical peel is best for you. Once you decide on the right one, you’ll love the results. A great chemical peel can:

  • Correct Sun Damage

    Did you know that sun exposure is responsible for most of the visible ageing of your skin? Thankfully, chemical peels can help repair and reverse the damage caused by the sun on your hands, face, chest and neck.

    Applying sunscreen regularly will help you block the sun damage and keep your skin looking youthful long after the chemical peel treatment is over.

  • Treat Acne

    Various studies have reported that chemical peels containing glycolic acid reduce acne by 50-95%, and those containing salicylic acid reduce acne by 47-75%.

    Most chemical peels that treat acne are generally on the lighter side as acne is typically a surface skin issue.

  • Diminish the appearance of Scars

    Moderate chemical peels treat some light scarring along with surface acne by penetrating more deeply into the skin. A deep peel can diminish the appearance of more significant acne scars.

  • Reduce Fine Lines and Wrinkles

    Chemical Peels remove the outer layer of the skin to reveal a new upper layer that is supple, fresh, and smooth, thus reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

    Depending on your cosmetic goals, a light, moderate or deep peel is recommended for addressing surface wrinkles.

  • Address Pigment Issues

    Chemical peels can not only lighten sun spots, freckles and acne marks; they also work excellently for correcting issues of pigmentation such as hyperpigmentation, melasma, and discolouration due to age spots. They work effectively well on hands, neck, face and chest.

  • Enhance Skin Tone and Texture

    Along with working wonders on your current skin issues, chemical peels also stimulate the growth of new, fresh skin. They rejuvenate the natural contours of the face, and the overall tone giving you a healthy, pretty glow.

  • Maximize the Effectiveness of Skincare Products

    The top layer of dead skin exists as a wall between you and the maximum effect of the skincare products. Chemical peels remove this layer and let the skin absorb the products more fully, allowing a single drop of that expensive night cream to go a long way. 


Chemical peel treatment works well for conditions like hyperpigmentation, acne marks, tanned skin, fine lines, wrinkles, and different types of spots on the skin. But the only safe way to get it done is under the supervision of a skilled dermatologist. It’s a cost-effective procedure, which gives quick, substantial results.
