So, you are interested in doing a body peel, but you aren't sure where to start?
The BIG issue here is what color is your skin? We need to know how to prep your skin.
Take a look at this video. This is what we use on very very light skin of Fitzpatrick 1, 2 or 3. How do I perform a body peel? TCA 30 at 1 layer. Glycolic 70 is another option
If your skin is thinner... older folks 60's and up generally, we want to lower that %. TCA 20 or even 13% can work better for them.
Now.. if your skin is a bit darker/ethnic... we need to PREP for 3-4 weeks with a melanin inhibitor first to help prevent PIH. Learn about that here: I have darker (ethnic) skin, can I still do a TCA or Jessners peel? Fade Bright is our inhibitor but you can use anything with alpha arbutin or hydroquinone.
Fitz 3/4 Starting with a 20% could* be appropriate.
Fitz 5/6 Starting with a 13% could* be appropriate.
Body Pigmentation: What can I use for body hyperpigmentation - spots - sun damage?
And just because you are going to ask: Body Peels. How come only one time per month?
Milder peel options are Lactic peel 50% or Glycolic 70. These don't cause as much flaking.. but that is OK. :)
*Not everyone has skin that is appropriate to do chemical peels on in the ethnic category. If you have skin that is constantly "marked up". You may not be a good candidate. Several dark areas on the skin from little wounds, scratches, bites, pimples... little things that never go away, show a great tendency to pigment. This is a sign that you have a very high chance of getting PIH. Your first step would be to use a melanin inhibitor to see if areas such as that will fully go away in a short amount of time. If proper treatment removes these in a few weeks - then you may be ok for a peel.
