Let’s start by explaining what exactly a chemical peel is.A chemical peel is a non invasive treatment that improves skin with the useof a chemical solution. It’s a procedure that promotes skin regeneration bysloughing off dead skin cells without resorting to extreme measures.Ever since the chemical peel was first introduced in the early 1900s,countless women have already enjoyed clear and flawless skin because ofthis technique. Whether you’re having problems with acne scars, fine linesor even skin discoloration, a chemical peel can help you even out your skintone fast, and with minimal side effects.How is it done?Chemical peels work by breaking down the dead skin cells so that new skincells grow in its place. A chemical solution like salicylic acid is applied, toremove excess sebum and clear all bacteria that feed on facial oil and deadskin cells. The solution is left on the skin for around 10-20 minutes,depending on its chemical strength and the results that you want to achieve.Once certain chemicals have been applied, the solution immediately startsbreaking down the top layer skin, in order to make way for a new layer ofskin to grow. For moderate damaged skin, changes in skin tone usuallybecome noticeable after 2-3 chemical peel sessions.Why is it popular among celebrities?There are many reasons why top celebrities nowadays consider the chemicalpeel to be their #1 go to beauty treatment. Compared to other surgicalprocedures, a chemical peel can give you younger looking skin in just a fewdays.

If you want to even out your skin tone and reduce finewrinkles, then a medium peel would suit you best. Want to tighten skin andget noticeably fairer skin?

If you’re going for a mild peel using glycolicacid for example, you may experience slight itching and a burning sensationon the affected area.If you’re thinking of getting a moderate peel with salicylic acid, you canexpect some level of redness and swelling once the chemical solution hasbeen applied.For deep peels that can be compared to second degree burns, you’llprobably need to take time off for a couple of weeks. Proper wound care isessential at this stage if you want to speed up the healing process andprevent infection.The Bare Truth: Doing a Chemical Peel at Home vs. ProfessionallyDone Peels at the ClinicSince there are already quite a number of peels that you can easily buyonline, or even at your local drugstore, more and more people are turning toDIY peeling kits to get clearer skin.

Before theprocedure, have a talk with your doctor so that you know what to expectafter your session.1) Get sun protectionOne of the most important things that you need to do after getting achemical peel is to get sun protection. If you can, try to avoid the sun for atleast 3 days after a chemical peel to give your skin enough time to recoveron its own.Once the redness and swelling has subsided, be sure to apply sun block withhigh SPF to the affected area, before heading out into the open. It doesn’tmatter if you’ll be spending most of your time indoors. Make it a habit toapply sun protection as often as you can.2) Take time outIf you decide to get a medium or deep peel, you might want to considertaking some time out from your daily routine after the peel. Give your skinenough time to heal so avoid makeup and beauty creams after a peel. Ifyou’re experiencing redness and swelling, take time out from your regularroutine and just wait it out at home.You should also cut back on alcohol and cigarettes as these can increaseswelling. If you experience any acne breakouts during the recovery time, letthem heal on their own. Don’t complicate your situation further by applyinglotions or ointments that will only irritate your healing skin.
  • 5. 3) Ask for painkillers or healing ointmentsIf you really can’t bear the swelling any longer, you can always ask yourdermatologist for some advice on healing ointments.

Over thecounter painkillers can help you deal with the pain, but be sure to consumein moderation.Before you decide on which chemical peel to get, make sure to see yourdermatologist for a consultation.
