Chemical peels are a type of skin treatment that involves applying a chemical solution to the skin to exfoliate and remove the top layer of dead skin cells. Chemical peels are typically performed by a trained aesthetician or dermatologist and can be done on the face, neck, or hands. There are different types of chemical peels available, ranging from mild to deep, and the type of peel chosen will depend on the individual's skin concerns and desired results. During the treatment, a chemical solution will be applied to the skin using a brush, cotton swab, or sponge. The solution may be left on the skin for a few minutes or up to an hour, depending on the type of peel being performed. The chemical solution will be neutralized using a neutralizing solution or water, or the chemical solution may be self-neutralizing. After treatment, an aesthetician or dermatologist will provide instructions for post-treatment care, which may include applying a moisturizer or ointment, avoiding sun exposure, and avoiding certain skincare products. It is important to follow the post-treatment care instructions to ensure the best possible results and prevent any potential adverse effects. The recovery time and downtime after a chemical peel will depend on the type of peel being performed and the individual's skin type and condition. Mild peels generally have little to no downtime, while deeper peels may require several days of recovery time.
