Comparative immunohistological and ultrastructural
studies were performed on specimens taken
before and after the application of chemical peels
(Jessner’s solution and glycolic acid) and microdermabrasion
to the clinically normal facial skin of the
post-auricular region. Skin treated with chemical
peels showed the immunohistological features of
wound healing. Beside these, ultrastructural
changes of cell injury were observed. These morphological
changes were mild following microdermabrasion.
