A chemical peel is a treatment that uses a peeling agent to remove the top layer of skin. The goal of a chemical peel is to remove the skin's dead cells, which can help improve the appearance of your skin. There are several types of chemical peels, each with its own benefits.

Some of the most common types of chemical peels are:

  • Acidic peel: This type uses an acidic solution to peel away the skin's surface layer. The acid helps break down the bonds between skin cells, which allows them to be removed more easily. Acids also cause inflammation and irritation, so it is important to avoid this type of peel if you have any existing skin conditions.

  • Hydrogen peroxide peel: This type uses hydrogen peroxide as the peeling agent. This molecule has a high rate of oxidation, which means it can break down the bonds between skin cells quickly. However, hydrogen peroxide also has a high rate of acidity, so it is important to use caution when using this type of peel. It is best used on areas that won't be exposed often (like the face).

  • Laser resurfacing: This type of peel uses a device that emits light. While it isn't as harsh as a chemical peel, the light rays do still break down the bonds between skin cells. However, there is no such thing as a "laser" that doesn't cause redness and pain.

This type of peel uses a laser beam to break down the bonds between skin cells. In some cases, lasers are used in combination with other types of treatments, like chemical peels or lasers.
