Chemical peeling is a technique used to improve the appearance of the skin. A chemical solution is applied to the skin that causes it to separate and eventually peel off the top layers of skin while rejuvenating at the same time. The regenerated skin is usually even in color, smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin.
Chemical peeling is often used to treat fine lines under the eyes and around the mouth. Wrinkles caused by sun damage, aging and hereditary factors can often be reduced or even eliminated with this procedure. Areas of sun-damaged skin, sun-induced elastics may improve after chemical peeling. It's also an effective treatment for elderly people who have extremely flaccid, fragile skin.
