Chemical peel works by application of weak acid over the skin to remove the top layer of skin. This helps rejuvenate the skin by exfoliating the skin, accelerating the formation of even and clearer skin. It is usually used to treat acne and scar on the face and on the back of the body. It also helps clean the pores. It stimulates new collagen formation under the skin when done consistently and repeatedly.
The most commonly used peel is a light peel, which can be done every four to six weeks as needed. Medium peels, on the other hand, exfoliate deeper layers of the skin and should be spaced about three to four months apart.
