Chemical peels are one of the most popular ways to make your skin look younger. What happens during a medium chemical peel?
The medium chemical peel procedure sometimes involves sedation, depending on the strength of the chemicals used and the plastic surgeon’s recommendation. Chemicals are then applied to the skin with a brush. These chemicals remove cells, a process that sometimes creates a tingling or stinging feeling.
After around three minutes, compresses are placed onto the treated area, ameliorating any discomfort. Fans are also used for this purpose, and petroleum jelly may be applied to the area.
