Health Tip: Chemical Peel

(HealthDay News) -- A chemical peel can reduce signs of aging and treat a variety of skin conditions, says the American Academy of Dermatology.

Acne, discoloration, freckles and sun-damaged skin are some of the many conditions commonly treated with a peel.

After treatment, patients often see smoother skin, a brighter complexion, a more-even skin tone and fewer wrinkles.

However, before considering treatment, it is important to remember that chemical peels are considered cosmetic treatments, so insurance may not cover the cost.
