Myths and Facts of Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are primarily used for skin conditions such as severe acne, acne scarring, hyper-pigmentation, rosacea and sun damage.

While chemical peels are not recommended for everyone those who may not find the intended relief with other solutions are the perfect recipient of this skin care solution.

A professional skin and laser clinic reviews all of the available treatments with you before it recommends chemical peels, which is why it is imperative that you select a reputable clinic to handle any treatment involving your skin.

The Process

Technically, an application of a solution is applied to the facial area that needs attention. This solution causes dead skin on the surface to flake off gradually – much like sunburned skin would peel away – leaving virgin skin with a smoother appearance.

The Myth and Facts

  • MYTH: Chemical peels are painful. FACT: Some peel solutions may sting slightly but are better described as “uncomfortable” rather than “painful”.
  • MYTH: Chemical peels make the skin thinner. FACT: Chemical peels are superficial and do not compromise the depth of your skin in any way.
  • MYTH: Chemical peels expose raw skin. FACT: When the dead skin falls away, the skin beneath is new but not raw.

You should discuss any fears or assumptions you may have about chemical peels if this treatment is recommended for you. No question is “silly” or “unimportant” when it applies to your skin care.
