Is there a light chemical peel that would enable me to be at work the next day without obvious redness?


Yes, we have light peels such as a 20% glycolic or lactic acid peel that don’t leave much redness, and you can return to work very quickly.

However, the results of these lighter peels are not as dramatic as deeper peels, e.g TCA 35% peel.

Usually, light peels can be done frequently to obtain the best results.
