A light chemical peel is composed of one or more chemicals, each of which has a different effect on the skin. The exact chemical composition of a light peel is determined by your physician to deal with your specific situation.
Examples of chemicals used in a light chemical peel include salicylic acid, maleic acid, glycolic acid, and lactic acid, along with other beta hydroxy acids and alpha hydroxy acids. These are quite mild and are used to ease and remove surface-level imperfections like acne and dry skin.
