Chemical Peel

A chemical peel is a cosmetic procedure for the treatment of facial blemishes and wrinkles that involves the application of a caustic chemical, especially an acid (such as alpha hydroxy acid), to the skin, causing the outer layer to be removed. The new, regenerated skin is typically smoother than the old skin, although it is temporarily more sensitive to the sun. Consult a licensed medical professional before undergoing any chemical peel procedure.
