Chemical peeling is a technique used to improve the appearance of the skin that is typically performed on the face, neck or hands. In this treatment, a chemical solution is applied to the skin that causes it to "blister" and eventually peel off. The new, regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin (American Society for Dermatologic Surgery).

This book is a practical guide to chemical peel processes for dermatologists.

Divided into 41 sections, the text begins with an overview of the history and classification of chemical peels, histology of skin and wound healing, basic chemistry and patient assessment and preparation.
