Full Answer

There are three different types of chemical peels used for facial rejuvenation, a superficial, medium, or deep peel. The chemical peel procedure is also referred to as chemexfoliation or derma-peeling, states Cleveland Clinic. For these different procedures, different strengths of chemical solutions are necessary to perform the peeling. A superficial peel may entail the use of a mild acid, such as alpha-hydroxy acid to peel away the skin's outer layers, while a medium peel may require the use of glycolic or trichloroacetic acid. For a deep peel, a doctor or dermatologist may use the chemical phenol.

At the WebMD site, there is a slideshow of before and after pictures of different types of nonsurgical rejuvenation techniques, including chemical peel procedures. Deep peels can involve the crusting and swelling of the face. However, the procedure can give dramatic improvement in the skin's appearance, as noted by WebMD. Similarly, at the Cleveland Clinic site, there are a few before and after pictures of chemical peels performed around the lips and the lower lids.
