Dermatologist 's  Response
Hi Hema,
These are chemical peels which should always be done under a doctor's supervision. I would strongly recommend against unskilled self application as it can lead to skin burns, permanent pigmentation and scarring. If you are having good results, you can take monthly sessions as maintenance for few months as advised by your doctor. However routine monthly sessions might not be required. Later on sunscreen and topical creams for self application can be continued for maintained glow and flawless skin . Take care.

Hi hema ,
Thanks for writing in.
As you have undergone the peeling without any adverse events, you can continue sessions for 1 month.It is not advisable to do it at home.Peeling should done under dermatologist observation.
It can have side effects if the procedure is not done correctly.

A visit to dermatologist will confirm the diagnosis and help in prescription medications for freckles and pigmentation.

Hope this helps.
