This webinar will present a deep dive into the chemistry aspects of chemical peels and identifies misnomers surrounding the use of this treatment. The focus includes various peel reaction compositions and the effects of different peeling agents in chemistry and physiology. The lecture will consist of a discussion surrounding the false information and "pseudo philosophies" regarding chemical peels and combined modalities.
