EXPERT Q&A

Q: If I dont actually peel after my chemical peel, is it still effective?

What our experts say:

Usually it is because a superficial layer will slough. However, some peels are designed to be light and for these, multiple peels are required to see any effectiveness. Peels such as the Theraplex Salicylic Acid peel are effective with minimal slough. Deeper peels such as TCA (trichloracetic acid) will almost always peel.
