[Chemical peels].

Chemical peels have become established over the past 40 years as an effective outpatient method for skin rejuvenation as well as the treatment of a variety of skin conditions. Although laser skin rejuvenation has claimed much attention in recent years, phenol peels, despite problems with scarring and hypopigmentation, remains the gold standard for skin resurfacing [11], against which other methods should be evaluated [21]. We present both a theoretical overview of chemical peels and practical step-for-step instructions.
