Question: These days almost everything is digital and high tech-even in the aesthetic world. Is a chemical peel done by mostly surgical instruments or is it hands on like a facial?
Answer: Chemical peels are a lost art form in many cosmetic surgery practices. Chemical peels are “old school” but still work well and at times much better than any high tech laser or device. The important issues with peels are patient selection, peel choice and the experience of the plastic surgeon or skin care professional applying the peel.
