A chemical peel is a technique used to regenerate and smoothen the texture of the skin. Peels are meant to remove the damaged outermost layers of the skin.
To achieve this, the peel solution induces a controlled injury to the skin. The wound healing processes begin to regenerate new outermost layers of the skin which is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin.
Peels can be used to treat the dark marks or very mild scars left over from acne. Multiple treatments are usually recommended for best results.
