skin peels are a type of facial treatment that involves the application of a chemical solution to the skin to remove the outer layers of skin cells. the goal of a skin peel is to improve the appearance of the skin by reducing the appearance of acne scars, fine lines, and uneven skin tone.
people with uneven skin tone, acne scars, or fine lines may benefit from a skin peel. it is also suitable for people with sun-damaged skin or age spots.
people with sensitive skin or a history of skin allergies should avoid skin peels. those with active acne or a recent sunburn should also not undergo a skin peel treatment.
the procedure for a skin peel varies depending on the type of peel being used. generally, the skin is cleaned and a chemical solution is applied to the skin. the solution is left on the skin for a set amount of time before being removed.
the recovery period for a skin peel varies depending on the strength of the peel. for a mild peel, the skin may be slightly red and swollen for a few days. for a more aggressive peel, the recovery period may be longer and may include flaking and peeling of the skin.
complications from a skin peel are rare, but they can include scarring, infection, and changes in skin colour. it is important to follow the aftercare instructions provided by the practitioner to minimize the risk of complications
