Chemical peels: a review of types, applications and complications

Chemical peels: a review of types, applications and complications Chemical peels are among the oldest and most used procedures in aesthetic medicine worldwide. Chemical peeling—or chemexfoliation—is a procedure wherein a chemical agent of a defined strength is applied to the skin, which causes a controlled destruction of the layers of the skin, and is followed by regeneration and remodelling, with improvement of texture and surface abnormality. The mechanical action of peeling, even when limited to the epidermis, is able to stimulate regeneration via pathways in the dermis. The depth of destruction depends on the substance used, its concentration and the number of layers applied. This article aims to review the types of chemical peels, their applications and potential complications. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Aesthetic Nursing Mark Allen Group

Abstract

Chemical peels are among the oldest and most used procedures in aesthetic medicine worldwide. Chemical peeling—or chemexfoliation—is a procedure wherein a chemical agent of a defined strength is applied to the skin, which causes a controlled destruction of the layers of the skin, and is followed by regeneration and remodelling, with improvement of texture and surface abnormality. The mechanical action of peeling, even when limited to the epidermis, is able to stimulate regeneration via pathways in the dermis. The depth of destruction depends on the substance used, its concentration and the number of layers applied. This article aims to review the types of chemical peels, their applications and potential complications.
