Are chemical peels still used today? You don't hear much about them anymore.

Question:
Are chemical peels still used today? You don't hear much about them anymore. What are they good for treating and are other things like injectables better?

Answer:
Chemical peels are definitely still available, some of which are performed by physicians and others by aestheticians, depending upon the aggressiveness of the peel. The main goals of chemical peels are to remove hyperpigmentation (sun spots), as well as very fine wrinkles. Low concentration glycolic peels can be done monthly, whereas a deeper peel, such as one using a TCA product, would only be done every few years. There are other peels available which are good for addressing rosacea, and acne.
