A chemical peel is a procedure in which chemical agents are applied to wrinkled, scarred or otherwise damaged skin. After, treatment scabs form, which then fall off leaving smoother and younger looking skin. This procedure, although initially prescribed mainly for cosmetic purposes is also used therapeutically. Cosmetic indications for the use of chemical peel include wrinkles caused by aging, sun damage, hereditary factors, superficial acne scarring, and irregular pigmentation of the skin including freckles and age spots. Melasma, a dark pigmentation of the face found primarily in women who are pregnant or are taking birth control pills can also be improved. Precancerous conditions such as keratoses also respond well to treatment.
