The term “peeling” means removing the outer surface. The chemical peelings are used to improve and correct the skin by peeling off the superficial layer of the skin. The most common cosmetic peeling substances are fruit acids and especially the glycolic acid. Although glycolic acid peelings are defined as superficial chemical peelings, they provide a moderate-depth peeling depending on their concentration, pH, and how long they are left on the skin.
