A chemical peel is a technique where a chemical solution is applied to the skin causing it to exfoliate and eventually peel away. Based on your needs and skin sensitivity, there are various levels of chemical peels: a superficial or “lunchtime” peel that penetrates only the outer layer of skin with an alpha-hydroxy acid, a medium peel that penetrates the outer and middle layers of skin with glycolic or trichloroacetic acid to remove damaged skin cells, and a deep peel that penetrates the deep layers of the middle layer of skin with trichloroacetic acid or phenol. As the most aggressive of the treatment options, a deep chemical peel will make a dramatic appearance in the skin and will not require multiple treatments.
