This is a dermatological act which encourages the skin to slough off, with the aim of stimulating its regrowth. Depending on the depth of penetration, superficial peels slough off a part of the epidermis, whilst medium peels penetrate to the epidermis and dermal layers; deep phenol peels reach the dermal layer but can be dangerous for the skin and are thus hardly ever carried out in practice.
