Chemical : Chemical peels involve the use of chemicals to remove the outer layers of the skin. There are several different chemicals used based on the depth of skin removal desired. Discomfort is directly related to the depth of peel. Light peels will have a mild discomfort while deeper peels have a greater degree of intraoperative and postoperative discomfort. Some deep peels are done under sedation for that reason. Talk to the physician who is doing the procedure about your concerns.
