Skin is a dynamic organ. Every day cells divide at the basal layer of the epidermis and begin upward to the outermost layer, the stratum corneum. The exfoliation of the stratum corneum is a normal daily event.
Chemical peeling is basically an accelerated form of exfoliation.
Three things occur.
1) Stimulation of epidermal growth by removing the old skin
2) Destruction of damaged skin cells and replacing them with more normalized tissue makes for a better cosmetic result. ( removal of sun damage, uneven skin tone, crepe skin, wrinkles...)
3) Induction of new collagen production, helps to thicken and strengthen skin cells
