How It Works
The chemical can stay on the skin from 1 to 10 minutes and then it neutralizes or cools and is removed. As the chemicals seep into the skin, they boost collagen while lifting off the top layer, or the epidermis, of the skin. This causes a peeling effect.
After a layer of skin peels off, it reveals the second layer or the dermis, which has fresher, tighter cells that are not as damaged.The normal pace of regeneration, however, is slow and does not prevent the accumulation of abnormal skin cells.
A more efficient way of ridding the body of those abnormal cells and replacing them with 'new' skin is to 'peel' off the top layers of skin. The body then replaces these layers with new skin that is healthier and younger looking. Depending on the nature and concentration of the chemicals used these peels can strip off only very superficial layers of skin or they can go deep into the skin.
