Even if you don’t have a specific skin problem, getting a chemical peel is a great way to restore or maintain a glowing complexion. Given then their effectiveness, safety, and affordability, chemical peels are a very popular Dermatologic procedure.
There are different types of chemical peels treatment (superficial, medium, and deep) which offer different benefits and risks. People of all ethnic backgrounds can enjoy the benefits of a chemical peel so long as they are under the care of a qualified professional who knows how to select the right peel for the right patient.
The procedure usually takes no more than 20 minutes. After cleansing the face, or other areas to be treated, a peeling agent is applied. Depending on which agent is used, it may be washed off or left on the skin. The chemical peeling process usually begins 1-3 days after the procedure and is completed in 5-7 days. The skin may appear dry and flaky during this time. Moisturizer and sunscreen must be used regularly during the 5-7 days after the peel. The use of these products helps achieve better healing and masks the peeling process.

The use of products containing Retinoids, Glycolic acid, and salicylic acid, as well as scrubs, Microdermabrasion, and waxing should be avoided for 3 days before and for 1 week after a chemical peel.
