What is a Dermaceutic Peel?

I read somewhere about a new kind of peel called a "dermaceutic peel" (sp?) that has been popular in Europe. What makes this peel different from a regular chemical peel?
There are so many hyped-up peels I have a hard time differentiating what makes one more special than another.
Please avoid any peel with a catchy name. There are only a few types of chemical peels with any legitimate research behind them.
Please avoid any peel with a catchy name. There are only a few types of chemical peels with any legitimate research behind them. These include glycolic acid, Jessner's, TCA, and phenol peels. When someone is promoting a "new" type of peel or one with a name attached, hold onto your purse. Your best course is to see an experienced dermatologist who specializes in chemical peels.
