What is a Chemical Peel?

A chemical peel is a beauty treatment that involves applying chemicals to the skin in order to remove layers of cells and improve the skin’s condition. There are three types of chemical peel:

  • Superficial, which causes a mild tingling or stinging sensation. This should dissipate after a couple of days, as should any reddening, flaking or peeling.
  • Medium, which intentionally penetrates deeper into the skin, causing a second-degree burn. Skin will redden and feel taut and swollen for a few days and new skin will begin to form a week or so later.
  • Deep, which causes a harsher second-degree burn, and includes severe swelling and throbbing. The area is covered with bandages and takes up to three weeks to recover. Painkillers will likely be required.

Chemical peels should be carried out by highly-skilled technicians due to the nature of the treatment. If sessions go awry, you could be left with severe injuries.

About Chemical Peel Injuries

All beauty procedures carry a certain level of risk. However, chemical peels are more risky than most due to the use of hazardous materials being applied to the skin. Some of the most commonly reported chemical peel injuries include:

  • Burns that are more severe than expected
  • Redness, which continues a considerable time after treatment
  • Excessive swelling
  • Allergic reaction (if chemicals have not been properly tested)

Regardless of how you have been injured, if it was caused by the negligence of a beauty technician due to lack of training, failure to follow correct procedures or another error, you are entitled to make a claim for compensation.
