Chemical peeling is an accelerated exfoliation of the skin induced by a chemical agent such as glycolic, lactic and mandelic acid.
The depth and results of the peel depends on the strength of the chemical agents used, the type of active ingredients incorporated into the peel, the skin type and the skill of the operator.
Superficial peeling agents cause an increased slough of the outer layers of the skin resulting in a mild to moderate peeling.
The superficial peeling will result in skin renewal and assist with the reduction or disappearance of sun damage , pigmentation,acne lesions,fine lines and wrinkles.
Moderate and deeper peels cause removal of the top layer of the skin, inflammation and regeneration of the lower layers.
