Peeling is a well-known treatment used for some time in cosmetic medicine. I personally find that, in many cases, it has been surpassed by Laser Technology regarding many specific occurrences (e.g. acne outcomes, dilated pores, resurfacing, etc.), but it remains an excellence for the treatment of deep skin spots such as melasma or chloasma gravidarum. Among the most popular ones are PRX and Retinol Peel.
There are different products available, with different concentrations and types of substances. Each substance has a different indication.
