What is a Chemical Peel?

A chemical peel is a technique used to improve the appearance of the skin on different areas of the body. Chemical peels are a non-invasive way to revitalize skin, improving its overall tone and texture. A chemical solution is applied to the skin that will cause it to exfoliate and eventually, depending on the type of peel, peel off. There are three basic types of chemical peels, ranging from superficial to deep. These peels are used to treat a variety of skincare concerns.
