What is chemical peel negligence?
A Chemical Peel is a procedure that helps treat skin conditions, such as ache, age spots and wrinkles. The procedure uses a caustic acid that is applied to the skin to burn its outer layers (epidermis), which allows new skin to grow.
Some chemical peels may burn deeper into the dermis layer of the skin. The general purpose of this treatment is to remove blemishes, sun damaged or freckled skin, but if not done correctly it can cause permanent skin damage. A chemical peel might not be suitable for everyone, as people who are on certain medications and have facial warts, may not be suitable for the treatment. This is why you must seek medical advice from you GP before you under go any cosmetic procedures.
