Thank you for posting on HCM.
Chemical peels are a popular lunch-time nonsurgical cosmetic procedure which scientifically rejuvenates your skin by removing its dead upper layers and gives you a healthy, luminous and radiant appearance and thus a youthful look
Many options are available in chemical peels depending on the requirement and skin type. (Glycolic peel, retinol peel, cocktail peel etc)
Chemical peels are very safe if done by a certified dermatologist .
Post peel you have to take car eof your skin in terms of proper sun protection by using sunscreen and keeping skin well hydrated by regular use of moisturiser.
Thank you
