Many people all over the country decide to get chemical peels, usually to make their skin appear younger and healthier. In this procedure, a chemical solution is professionally applied to one’s skin. Over time (usually a matter of a few days to up to two weeks), the solution penetrates the top layers of skin and the skin peels off. This allows for new skin to regrow and replace the peeled skin, giving one a renewed glow and fresh skin. The amount of skin that peels off will depend on the depth of chemical peel, which varies depending on three factors.
There are three important factors that can affect the depth of a chemical peel. These include:
Depending on the look you want to achieve and the recommendations of your cosmetic surgeon, you will want to alter the depth of the chemical peel.
