Chemical peels are currently a hot skin treatment, but the concept behind them has been around for longer than you probably think! These procedures use potent exfoliating ingredients to lift pigment to the top layer of the skin and cause it to slough off, resulting in a brighter, smoother, and more even appearance. But how exactly do these treatments work, and which chemical peel is best for your skin?
The Skin Report is a podcast created to educate listeners on methods to improve skin health for people of all ethnicities and ages. On this episode, host Dr. Sethi gives listeners a deeper look into how chemical peels work to renew your skin from the inside out. She explains the process behind chemical peel treatments and covers this skin refining method’s advantages and potential drawbacks. Chemical peels can effectively reduce visible skin insults and cause the skin to appear smoother and more even in overall tone and texture. Still, choosing the right strength chemical peel for your unique skin is essential! That’s why Dr. Sethi advises listeners on selecting the best chemical peel potency for their skin type and shares her professional opinion on the safety of chemical peels for brown skin and more melanated skin tones.
