Chemical peeling is a procedure when a chemical agent of defined strength is applied to skin which causes a controlled destruction of the layers of the skin that is followed by regeneration and remodelling, with improvement of texture and surface abnormalities.
The concept of skin peeling by chemicals to beautify the skin has been used since time immemorial. Cleopatra used sour milk containing lactic acid & french women used old wine containing tartaric acid as a beauty bath.
