A chemical peel is a treatment in which a corrosive agent is used to remove the damaged external layers of the skin. In performing chemicals peels, alpha hydroxy acids (AHA), retinol based peels, trichloroacetic acid (TCA), or phenol are applied to the skin.

A chemical peel is a skin-resurfacing technique in which a chemical solution is applied to the skin to peel/remove the top layers. The lower layers of skin grow to come back after a chemical peel which gives smoother and more youthful looking skin.
