As people get older the skin loses its younger appearance and its elasticity and looks older. The peelings are chemicals that are done in the superficial layers of the skin allowing the skin tissues to grow and in the process make the face appear younger. Peelings are done with acids which burn the top layers of the skin. The same process can be obtained by using the laser which has been very useful, also using a process called dermabrasion where the skin is sanded down to a deeper layer so it can grow and look younger. Dermabrasion is not to be confused with microdermabrasion which is the same type of process however much lighter since the dermabrasion doesn’t go very deep at all and it’s effects are much more limited that the real dermabrasion. Peels can be superficial giving some improvement in the appearance of the skin.
