A chemical peel is a cosmetic procedure in which a chemical solution is applied to the skin to exfoliate and remove dead skin cells, resulting in a smoother and more even complexion.

The solution used can vary in strength, depending on the desired effects and the individual's skin type.

Chemical peels can improve the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, sun damage, and uneven skin tone.
