Medical grade chemical peels remain the standard for dermatologists and medical professionals. With the advent of day spas and aestheticians performing chemical peels and microdermabrasion, the therapeutic effect is minimal. These non-healthcare professionals can only apply these peels superficially which leads merely to exfoliating the top layers of the skin. Non-healthcare providers make claims of achieving results, but because of the legal percentages with the various acids they are only able to actually use and PH levels allowed by law. There is a possibility of no improvement or correction.
Medical grade chemical peels permit a higher amount of concentration of acid and at a PH level that may actually reach deep underneath the skin in order to actually obtain the benefits associated with these kind of treatments. There are many different chemical peels available and each type of chemical peel has varying benefits.
