Common Myths About Chemical Peels

chemical peel

Multiple studies and surveys conducted by agencies ranging from news and media outlets to large government agencies have found that the average American spends anywhere from $300 to $700 on skincare products and routines, every year. All that to say, skin care is important to Americans, and chances are, it’s important to you. Of the many products on shelves today, from ointments to masks, chances are you’ve come across or have heard about chemical peels, a procedure that intends to make the skin more youthful by utilizing chemical solutions to remove layers of the skin. Even though chemical peels are incredibly popular, with over a million chemical peel procedures happening in the United States every year alone, you may not know much about them. Today, we at Musick Dermatology will take you through common myths and misconceptions about chemical peels.

Chemical Peels Cause Excessive Peeling 

Though chemical peels can cause some peeling, not all chemical peels do. There are varying degrees of strength when it comes to chemical peels. You and your provider will have a consultation or conversation regarding your goals and what chemical peel best suits your needs. The greater the strength of your chemical peel, the greater the penetration and turnover of your skin. With these factors as well as your skin’s sensitivity, the amount of peeling can be potentially predicted. However, again, chemical peels do not inherently cause excessive peeling and some don’t cause any peeling at all.

Don’t Get A Chemical Peel If You Have Sensitive Skin

If you have conditions such as eczema or rosacea, you may assume that chemical peels aren’t for you. However, chemical peels have been shown to help these sensitive skin conditions on occasion. Again, make sure to speak to your provider to see what strength and type of chemical peel may be best for you.
