Chemical Peels: Dermatologists perform chemical peels as part of a procedure. The doctor will use alpha hydroxyl acids (or beta acid hydroxyl) to take off the epidermis’ outermost layer (also known as the stratum corneum). The epidermis is a layer on the skin that contains fat cells that help keep the skin smooth and firm. The epidermis has an elastin-like layer which helps keep your skin looking young. If the layers are removed, the face looks wrinkled and it becomes more vulnerable to damage.

This procedure eliminates tiny deposits in the epidermis, which is the top layer of the skin. These crystals help reduce fine lines and wrinkles. The epidermis will no longer appear dry or tight, and new hair growth appears better. If this treatment is applied regularly, it can significantly improve the appearance of complexion and skin.
