It is a technique used to improve and smooth the texture of the skin. Chemical peels are intended to remove the outermost layers of the skin and stimulate the renewal of it. The regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old one.

Peelings are used to correct fine, medium or deep wrinkles, to treat acne (active, mild or moderate) and its sequelae, photoaging, skin aging, sagging, fine and rough skin, oily skin, skin blemishes, actinic keratoses, etc.

Depending on the substance used, different levels of action will be produced (superficial, medium or deep) and more or less deep defects in the skin layers will be corrected. The choice will be determined by factors such as skin type, general medical history, age, and skin condition.
