It is a cosmetic procedure which is used to treat acne, various pigmentary conditions, fine wrinkles and other signs of skin aging. It not only leaves your skin brighter and smoother but also helps to even out uneven skin tone. It must be performed by a professional only to reduce the potential side-effects of a chemical peel. Peels are selected based on the type of skin the patient has and also the condition being treated.
These three conditions differ in their aetiology and are commonly confused with one another. Wart is a viral infection and is commonly seen in children. It is highly infectious and thus the possibility of having more than one patient in the same family is high. Skin tag is a benign over growth of the skin and is commonly associated with weight gain, diabetes or may just be hereditary. Mole which is called a “Nevus” in medical terminology, is a collection of the pigment cells called ‘melanocytes’. They are usually harmless but may rarely be cancerous.
All these three lesions can be easily cauterized as an outpatient procedure.
Treatment of acne includes chemical peels and intense pulse light (IPL) therapy. Acne scars can be either hypertrophic or atrophic. Depending on the type of scars, we can treat with chemical peels, dermaroller, microdermabrasion, lasers.
Various hyper pigmented conditions like melisma, post inflammatory pigmentation, freckles, nevus of Ota, macular amyloidosis, lichen planus pigmentosus and many others can be treated with chemical peels and lasers.

Keloid is a raised scar, commonly seen on the chest, shoulder, back and ear. It is due to extra scar tissue growth and extends beyond the wound margins. Not everyone has a tendency for keloid. These can be treated with intra- lesional steroid injections, cryosurgery, IPL.
