Skin rejuvenation can be accomplished is three basic ways:  mechanically, with laser, or by chemicals.  Mechanical dermabrasion uses a surgical "sanding" device to remove superficial layers of skin while microdermabrasion uses a machine superfically remove only the top layers of the skin.  Lasers can be used in various wavelengths and strengths to target water in the skin and remove superficial or deeper layers of the skin (ablative vs nonablative) to a targeted endpoint.  Chemicals can also be used to remove skin skin with different degrees of treatments:  deep or superficial.  Some popular examples of chemical peels include:  Gylcolic Acid (superficial), TCA (medium depth), and Phenol (deep depth). 
Chemical peels rejuvenate the skin by removing old, dead skin and superfical layers of the skin.  New collagen is then produced in a process called collagen remodeling.  Benefits of chemical peels include improved skin tone, texture, pore size, color, and fine lines and wrinkles. 
One very popular chemical peel in my office is The Perfect Derma Peel.  This medium depth peel has the advantages of phenol (deeper peel) in a formulation that minimizes downtime.  It is safe for all skin types.  It is very simple to apply and the post peel instructions are clear and easy to follow.  The Perfect Derma Peel has all of the necessary ingredients popular in a wide variety of chemical peels:  Glutathione, Kojic Acid, TCA, Retinoic Acid, Phenol, Salicylic Acid, Vitamin C
