First of all what is a chemical peel?

A chemical peel improves the texture of the skin by applying a chemical solution to the skin that causes dead skin to peel off.  Light peels can be done every few months of when ever your complexion needs some refreshing.

What type of skin is it indicated for?

Best for acne prone, discolored, fine lines and dullness.

At home products:

From pre-soaked pads, to a bottled solution, at home chemical peel products can be found very easily.  Lean towards the side of caution on these though.  When dealing with a chemical solution, ' always easy to "let the fire out."  After applying these sort of treatments at home, the hard part is taking them off, and making sure to not get any solution in your eyes.  Also some chemical solutions are best removed by another solution that stops the burning on contact.  You don't want to be looking like Samantha from "Sex in the City" due to your at-home peel endeavor. Be safe, and seek a professional.

Medical Spa Treatment:

This is a safer option. Plus if the professional is well trained he/she can formulate the peel just for your skin type and skin problems by using different peels types, to different areas of the skin.  Your results will be better since out home peelers tend to leave the solution on too long, go too deep and cause more damage to the skin than good. In the long your your are going to be saving money by having a professional do it, and get the results you want the first time.
