chemical peel on face

Thinking about chemical peel? Know the risk

Chemical peels may seem as a quick fix, but has some risks for melanin-rich skin and sensitive skin.

Why are we talking about chemical peels? Most people choose for chemical peels in winter months as the sun light is less harmful. So we want to provide information before you make a decision on weather a chemical peel is right for your skin.

If you chose one, only a professional health care provider should perform the procedure, which can be costly. Most people experience a burning, redness, and stinging sensation from chemical peels. Some have to take off work for week to heel.

Abrasive exfoliants, retinol products, and other chemicals should be avoided before chemical peels to help avoid potential of permanent scarring. 

There is also a risk for chemical peel in melanin-rich skin to cause post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Which makes your skin appear darker than it already was making more hyperpigmentation and dark spots. There is also a risk of skin infection and heart, kidney, or liver damage IAW the Mayo Clinic.

Those with sensitive skin or prone to scarring or keloids should avoid chemical peels.
