What is Chemical Peeling of the skin? How effective is it?
Chemical peels smooth and improve the texture of the skin on your face. I get a light chemical peel if I start to break out and it really helps.
There are different strengths of chemical peels, containing different levels of acid (normally glycolic). Some stronger chemical peels are used to treat scarring, wrinkles, and sun damage.
They call it a peel because your skin can peel for up to a week after the treatment, depending on the strength of the peel.
If you get a peel, be prepared to be red for a couple of days. And stay out of the sun!
The actual treatment stings a little, but you feel very clean and refreshed when you leave!
I found that chemical peeling is effective for acne but have never had experience with using it for anything else.
