Abstract

Chemical peeling, or chemoexfoliation, is a dermatological procedure commonly used for both skin rejuvenation and some cutaneous conditions. It consists of the application of one or more chemical exfoliating compounds to the skin to remove and regenerate part of the epidermis and dermis. This may result in the improvement of the physical appearance of the skin and a decrease in the number of wrinkles, pigmentations (e.g., melasma, lentigo), and inflammatory lesions (e.g., acne, rosacea) [1, 2].
