Botox has been around for a long time and will continue to be one of the most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedures done by both men and women. Botox uses injections to relax the facial muscles to remove lines and wrinkles.

The most popular areas where botox is usually done is around the eyes and on the forehead. This is one of the quickest cosmetic procedures and doesn’t require much time to recover. It is quite effective and is more subtle than other invasive cosmetic procedures.

Chemical Peel

A chemical peel is one of the cosmetic procedures used to improve the appearance of the skin on the face, neck or hands. A chemical solution is applied to the skin that causes it to exfoliate and eventually peel off. The new, regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin. The new skin is also temporarily more sensitive to the sun. There are three basic types of chemical peels:

Superficial peel: Alpha-hydroxy acid or another mild acid is used to penetrate only the outer layer of skin to gently exfoliate it. The treatment is used to improve the appearance of mild skin discoloration and rough skin as well as to refresh the face, neck, chest or hands.

Medium peel: Glycolic or trichloroacetic acid is applied to penetrate the out and middle layers of skin to remove damaged skin cells. The treatment is used to improve age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, freckles and moderate skin discoloration.

Deep peel: Trichloroacetic acid or phenol is applied to deeply penetrate the middle layer of skin to remove damaged skin cells, lines, age spots and shallow scars.
The results of chemical peels can last anywhere from one month to the rest of your life. The longevity of this cosmetic procedure results depends on several factors, but the most significant factor is the strength of the peel.
