Exfoliation is a commonly used term when people talk about skin care. The actual methodology behind the process is simple but effective; exfoliation is the process of removing old, dead layers of skin. A chemical peel is one of these effective techniques.

Procedures like a chemical peel exfoliate the skin by applying a formula of acids to loosen the glue-like substance that holds skin cells together. Chemical peels are effective for treating acne and other skin blemishes. One of the other known benefits of exfoliation is that is promotes the natural health of the skin by boosting the health of the skin’s collagen layer.

Consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Perhez Jaffer for more information about how procedures like a chemical peel can provide exfoliation.
