A chemical peel involves applying a chemical solution to wrinkly areas, causing the dead skin to shed and eventually peel off. The regenerated skin tends to be smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin.
Some types of chemical peels can be bought and used without a medical license, but it is advisable to consult a medical health care professional for the treatment.
i want to know if a creature like elf (either made of plantbase or just organic animal) can shed their skin or layers like snake or onions that have multiple layers, will it protect from forming a wrinkle on their skin or make them not look like an elder? i know human can shed or peel their skin but it mostly because of skin damage like burn or sunburn,skin disease,etc.
does it have different effect between the creature skin if it made/form from organic animal and plantbase such as wood/bark?
