What is a Chemical Peel?
A chemical peel is a technique used to improve the appearance of the skin on the face, neck or hands. A chemical solution is applied to the skin that causes it to exfoliate and eventually peel off the outermost layers of the skin. The new, regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin.
