During these treatments, the technician or doctor will apply Trichloroacetic Acid, Glycolic and/or Salicylic Acids, Carbolic or even Lactic acid to dampened skin, which will refresh the appearance of your skin and minimize finer-sized lines, but you'll need medium-to-deep depth of peel to fight away facial discoloration. Medium depth peels use tougher acids that penetrate deeper into skin. Really deep chemical peels must be accomplished under local anesthesia and necessitate 5 to 10 days for recovery. You will want to wear sunblock and avoid any sunlight after treatment to prevent any additional discoloration. After treatment, you may need bandaging for three-to-four days on the affected area to boost healing.
