Scar Removal Peels
Most Popular Procedures
There are a variety of peels available for scar removal, including chemical peels, enzyme peels, and physical peels. However, it’s important to note that not all scars can be treated with peels, and some scars may require more aggressive treatments such as surgery or laser therapy.
Chemical peels use a chemical solution to remove the top layer of skin, which can reduce the appearance of scars. The strength of the solution used will depend on the severity of the scar, and a trained professional should perform the peel to ensure safety and effectiveness.
Enzyme peels use natural enzymes to exfoliate the skin and can be less harsh than chemical peels. They are often used for more superficial scars.
