I’ve heard a lot about chemical peels like TCA peel and Glycolic Peel. Can I save money and do it at-home or not worth the risk and go to the derm?

to At Home Chemical Peel Risks?
First to Last
Hello, i was just wondering did you have the peels done at a salon or did you do them at home yourself? Im thinking about doing the pomegranate peel from Cosmedix or maybe the Timeless one, but i'd like to do it at home.

Good luck with your peel treatment!
Chemical peels can work well to improve skin tone and texture.
To get the best results a patient should get a peel that goes to the papillary dermis or upper reticular dermis. (this is the depth on penetration)
To determine if you are a good candidate for this, a consultation is best.
Simply put: even if you can buy the ingredients to do the deeper peel it is not safe to do yourself.
Not only with the application be sub-standard but the alsmost as important is the after-care. You need a skilled MD to help you through the recovery to minimize side-effects and complications.
