As always, you should read all the directions provided before you start the peel process. My favorite line from the the instruction book says that “it is important to remember that a chemical peel is the willful application of an ACID to produce a controlled injury to the skin.” The things us women do to look beautiful! The process allows the body to “amp” up the production of collagen and elastin in the dermis and then causes the epidermis (the part you see) to slough off and reveal new skin. Who doesn’t like new skin? Enough of that geek stuff.
