What is a chemical peel? Clinically speaking, it exfoliates the skin by dissolving the outer layer of the epidermis, or the outer layer of your skin.

It remains a preferred choice of treatment among surgeons and cosmetic patients alike, according to the annual survey provided by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS). Chemical peels are offered in most skin clinics across the country, such as Clarity Skin in Utah.
