Chemical Peels at Home are Fine if you are trying to get the "Freddy Krueger" Look!

Chemical peels are great and everybody needs at least a yearly peel but they should only be done by professionals since there are so many home disaster peels occurring out there.  Don't risk your looks for the sake of saving a little money when it comes to peels since they aren't that expensive anymore.

My advice is that a peel should be only done by a dermatologist or plastic surgeon in their office. Any peels done at home will not be as strong or as effective as those in the office.
