If you want to start the year off fresh, a facial chemical peel can get rid of dead skin cells and rejuvenate your skin. Be sure to consult your dermatologist before choosing this procedure.

Chemical peels come in a wide variety of strengths depending on what you are looking for. They range from the lunchtime peel for a quick freshening up of the skin with no downtime to deeper, more intense applications to even out pigment and treat wrinkles. The deeper the peel, the more effective – but also the higher the risk for complications. Peels should only be applied under the direction of a trained physician.
