Can Chemical Peeling Damage?

In rare cases, chemical peeling procedure can damage with infection and scarring. You must talk to your doctor about this. No procedure that changes body in any way is free from risk.

AHA formulations are used to give light peel, TCA is used to give a medium depth peel and phenol is used to give a deep peel to the skin. You can visualize the process like this - the deeper your skin problem, the deeper peel may be used. So for surface aberrations, a mild peel is done and for deeper scars, a deep peel is performed. Your doctor will decide about that after looking at your skin and consulting with you about what results you desire, the time you want to give and the care and discomfort you are ready to undergo. Deep peels give more discomfort but produces better results. As all peeling treatments use chemicals and removal of old skin, sometimes infections and scarring may occur. You must talk to your doctor about the probability of such occurrences before getting the procedure done.
