The chemical peeling is the process that involves the application of one or more exfoliating agents to the skin, resulting in the destruction of portions of the epidermis and/or dermis with subsequent regeneration. These techniques produce a controlled wound with instant vascular coagulation resulting in skin rejuvenenation with reduction or disappearance of actinic keratoses and changes, pigmentary dyschromias, rhytides, and selected superficial depressed scar.
We herein introduce brief skin resurfacing techniques, indications, effectiveness, side effects of chemical peeling, dermabrasion, laser resurfacing.
