In brief: Chemical Peel

In a chemical peel, a chemical solution is applied to the skin and allowed to soak in.
Over the next 1 to 14 days, depending on how deeply the chemical penetrated the skin, the skin peels off. This procedure destroys parts of the skin in a controlled way so that new skin can grow in its place. Types of chemical peels differ based on how deeply the chemical penetrates and what type of chemicals use.
