A chemical peel is usually some sort of medical grade topical acid that is applied to the skin and causes the skin to peel and exfoliate. Depending on the kind of chemical used and the strength, patients experience very light peeling to very intense peeling. With the lighter peels, the patient might not notice any exfoliation at all but that their skin just looks brighter and healthier. The stronger peels will have more obvious peeling and exfoliation.

People have told me that my face will become very red after a chemical peel.
This is not true for all chemical peels. Some chemicals will cause redness for a couple of days, but some chemical peels will not cause any redness at all.

What are some risk and side effects?
Chemical peels are a very benign and safe procedure. However, if the chemical peel is not performed by a medical professional, a patient can suffer from burns, hyper-pigmentation, or hypo-pigmentation of their skin. A physician needs to assess the patient’s skin and determine what kind of chemical, at what strength, and at what interval the patient needs.
