Chemical peels, laser resurfacing, and dermabrasion all offer unique options for skin resurfacing for rhytids and dyschromias. Laser resurfacing has developed over the previous decades, but it is the chemical peel against which all modern forms of skin resurfacing are measured. Phenol-croton oil peels have been modernized and depend on croton oil concentration to minimize risks. Complications associated with skin resurfacing are uncommon with proper technique and postoperative management. 

The rise of Chemical Peeling in 19th‐century European Dermatology: emergence of agents, formulations and treatments

Research ascribes the first use of phenol as a chemical peeling agent to William Tilbury Fox in 1871 and Ferdinand von Hebra is said to describe the properties of various peeling agents in 1874.

Wounding Therapies for Prevention of Photocarcinogenesis

Wounding therapies such as dermabrasion, microneedling, chemical peeling, and fractionated laser resurfacing have been shown to restore IGF-1/IGF-1R signaling in geriatric skin and suppress the propagation of UVB-damaged keratinocytes, which reduces the incidence of age-associated non-melanoma skin cancer.

Epiderm-Abrasion-Assisted Intensive Pulsed Light and Radiofrequency in Aesthetic Treatment Extensive Facial Freckles

Epiderm-abrasion and electro-photobiomodulation (IPL&RF) are effective methods in treatment of facial freckles.



Complications of Medium Depth and Deep Chemical Peels

Results and complications are generally related to the depth of wounding, with deeper peels providing more marked results and higher incidence of complications.

Combination Jessner’s Solution and Trichloroacetic Acid Chemical Peel: Technique and Outcomes

The combination of Jessner’s solution and 35% trichloroacetic acid is an effective, safe resurfacing tool that can treat superficial to moderate rhytids and there is a significant learning curve to understand the intricacies of chemical penetration in the skin.

Tretinoin accelerates healing after trichloroacetic acid chemical peel.

It is concluded that 0.1% tretinoin pretreatment for 2 weeks prior to the TCA peel will significantly speed healing, which may result in greater patient satisfaction.
