A chemical peel is a method for enhancing the look of the skin on the hands, neck, or face. It is a procedure in which a chemical solution is administered to the skin in order to exfoliate and ultimately peel off the skin’s damaged outer layer. When the new skin is exposed, it is less wrinkly and smoother. Limiting exposure and using a decent sunscreen are advised because it might be sensitive to the sun for a few days.
Peels that are superficial or light
These peels include alpha-hydroxy acids. They get all the way down to the stratum corneum, the outermost layer. They are employed to cure acne, lighten discolouration, and improve the appearance of moderate skin.
