Chemical Peels

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. The following chapters cover numerous types of chemical peel treatments for a variety of disorders, and the book concludes with discussion on peel treatment results amongst patients of different ethnicities and skin tones. Edited by internationally recognised specialists in the field of dermatology, the book is highly illustrated with nearly 350 clinical photographs and tables to enhance learning.
