A chemical solution is applied to the skin that causes it to exfoliate and eventually peel off. The new, regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin. As exfoliation takes place, pigmentation are also reduced. Depending on the condition, different peels are selected to treat different conditions. Chemical peels can also be used as a rejuvenation therapy, to address acne, comedone, acne scars, wrinkles, sagging skin, sun damaged and aging skin.
