This is the question
Have you ever heard someone saying “this or that peel didn’t work for me, I didn’t peel at all”?
You do not always have to actually “peel” after a peel to see the benefits. The visible “peeling” is just a side effect. The actual peeling is happening at the cellular level. This is often the reason why most people will stop experiencing visible flaking after a few peels. They get all the benefits of the peel without any side effects.
The success of the peel should not be judged by the amount of peeling, but by the end results that the peel will produce. The amount of peeling may vary depending on individual skin condition at the time of the peel. The condition of the skin at the time of the peel can alter the degree of skin flaking. You can still see improvement in overall skin texture, tone, and pigment without visible skin peeling. Regardless of the degree of peeling, the skin is still sloughing off at an accelerated rate, resulting in the improvement of skin tone and texture and an improvement of fine lines and uneven pigmentation.
