Deeper peels like like phenol started being used by Physicians in 1882, which remove the epidermis down to the dermis the wound healing is up to two years and not very common and reserved for major tissue damage. Superficial light peels which are Chemical Exfoliaters are an excellent choice to brighten, lift and minimize pore size. Peels are my favorite
