A medical chemical peel is a short and sweet procedure that consists of a heavy-duty solution being applied to the skin to remove the outmost layers, the epidermis and dermis. The skin that develops after a chemical peel is healthier, silky, and smoother. If you choose to get a light or intermediate peel you might need to complete more sessions in order to get the results to be relevant. Medical chemical peels are used for many reasons. Most often to treat spotted skin and scars or wrinkles usually on the face or hands. Medical chemical peels can be done by themselves but can also be done in combination with other beautifying cosmetic procedures. Medical chemical peels are done at various depths. The deeper the peel the more noticeable the results, but will have a longer recovery time.
Results are not guaranteed to be permanent. Regardless of the depth of your peel there is always the chance that your skin will become red, swollen, tight and irritated. Always listen to what your aesthetic professional tells you in regards to sun protection, cleansing, mortirizing and applying ointments as you are healing from your peel. Also, avoid rubbing, picking or scratching your skin. This will ensure the best results!
