What are chemical peels?

To achieve this, chemical peels produce a controlled injury to the skin which promotes the growth of new skin. Many different chemicals are used for chemical peels and include glycolic acid, trichloroacetic acid (TCA), salicylic acid, “Jessners” solution, and phenol all which produce different degrees of injury of the skin. There are two layers of the skin; the outer layer (the epidermis) and the inner layer (the dermis).
