However, it is important to choose a peel that is appropriate for each individual’s skin type. Performing a more aggressive peel on a sensitive skin patient could be disastrous, especially if the patient has not built up a tolerance for chemical exfoliation. For a patient who has very sensitive skin, I would suggest to start with a very light peel with acids that have larger molecules and are known to be less irritating. Mandelic and lactic acids are a few examples of such acids. Furthermore, for a patient who tends to be reactive to skin care products and has a history of allergic reactions, I would highly suggest or require a patch test 24 hours prior to the actual procedure. If there was no abnormal reaction, it would at least be known that there is no allergy present that could cause adverse effects. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Sid Ramey Social Butterfly 2021-08-06T19:14:17+01:00Added an answer on August 6, 2021 at 7:14 pm Do yourself a huge favor and consult with a dermatologist first. There are chemical peels, and then there are chemicals that can ruin your skin permanently. Be very careful about what you are thinking of doing, and don’t do it based solely on the half-baked advice of some amateur. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Attachment Select file Browse Featured image Select file Browse Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
