Chemical peels are important tools for skin rejuvenation. Their popularity is related to their versatility and relative simplicity.
Chemical peels are classified as superficial, medium, and deep according to the depth of penetration of the peeling solution.
The results of the procedure depend upon the chemical used and its concentration, method of application, contact time, skin condition, preparation, etc. The depth of the peel determines the patient's inconvenience during and after the procedure, healing time, the rate of the potential side effects, and the results. Different agents are available to achieve different peel depths. Recovery times vary from 1 day to 2 weeks, depending upon the depth of the peel. - courtesy nih.gov
