Chemical peel and profound.

I have been using hydrocortisone cream 1%as spot treatment as well as for minor skin redness. Will getting a chemical peel or profound cause problem or risk my skin healing phase? Thank you.

Thanks for your query. Prolonged use of hydro cortisone makes your skin thin and sensitive. You can get a chemical peel but only from a dermatologist with minimal risks but don’t forget to apply sunscreen regularly.
