Chemical peels – are they painful?
Published on June 17, 2011 by Kyle Choe
Question: I’ve been doing my research on chemical peels and I think I’m ready to get one done. It is a painful procedure?
Answer: It depends. Chemical peels are categorized into different types and their depth of penetration will dictate how much pain you will have. Any licensed skin care experts can perform the superficial type without much discomfort. The medium to deep chemical peels will require sedation/anesthesia.
