Chemical peels are procedures that are sometimes used to restore skin that has become damaged by acne or wrinkled by age or other factors. Conditions such as dark facial pigments and keratoses (thick, rough, reddish growths), as well as freckles and age spots, also can sometimes be removed by a chemical peel.
The process involves application of a solution of glycolic acid, followed by a gentle skin cleansing procedure.
