The downtime myth


People seem to live with the impression that you will not be able to get out of the house for weeks after a chemical peel. This is not necessarily the truth. While deep chemical peel, which can only be performed by a physician, can leave patients with a significant downtime, the other types of treatments are less likely to require that much time for healing. In fact, most chemical peels only leave you with a slight redness that will go away in a couple of days at most. The purpose of a chemical peel is to help you shed damaged skin, so healing time will be required, but nothing like you see in the movies.


The natural home peels are better myth


The bipolar thinking that natural is good, chemical is bad has led to an unprecedented increase in the number of people trying out several natural home remedies and destroying their skin. It is important to understand that something natural is not necessarily safe especially when applied on your skin. Unlike home remedies, treatments developed in a lab cannot be used unless extensive research and testing is completed to ensure the safety of the patients. When it comes to skin peel treatments, the risks are even higher, because the substances used to replace the solutions provided by physicians need to reproduce the results of chemical peels and exfoliate the skin. Therefore, most of these natural remedies are acid based and permanently damage the skin. Only professionals should do chemical peels, because certain people have higher skin sensitivity and peeling is not suitable for them.


All chemicals are bad myth


Not all chemicals are bad, just like not everything natural is good. You can find numerous poisons in nature that you would not want near you or your skin, so you can definitely find chemicals that will help you treat skin conditions. Anything formulated by a chemist is called chemical, including medicine, and they are often produced from plants and herbs. The word in itself is used for anything chemical, so they can be both good and bad for your skin. Chemical peels are safe to use, because their purpose is to help you cure acne and reduce wrinkles, so the substances used will not harm you.
