Skin Peeling

OVERVIEW

Skin Peeling can have causes that aren't due to underlying disease. Examples include Sunburn, Grass burn and prolonged time in the water or prolonged skin contact with noxious liquid. Skin peeling is the shedding of the outermost membrane or layer of tissue, such as the skin. Chemical peels are cosmetic treatments that can be applied to the face, hands, and neck. They are used to improve the appearance or feel of the skin. During this procedure, chemical solutions will be applied to the area being treated, which causes the skin to exfoliate and eventually peel off. Once this happens, the new skin underneath is often smoother, appears less wrinkled and may have less damage.
