Chemical treatments can improve the skin appearance. In this treatment, a chemical solution is applied to the skin, which makes it blister, and eventually peel off. The new skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin. Tell your Nurse Practitioner if you have any history of scarring, or cold sores.
Before you get a chemical peel, your Nurse Practitioner may ask you to stop taking certain drugs and prepare your skin by using other medications such as Retin-A, Renova, or glycolic acid.
