There are many beauty treatments that you can do at home to save yourself money, save yourself time, and save yourself headaches. As true as that statement is, there are also beauty treatments that you should never, under any circumstances, try yourself. Here are ten salon treatments best left to the professionals.
1. Chemical Peels
A chemical peel is a perfect treatment for many skin problems such as acne, acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles and sun damaged skin. During the procedure a chemical solution is applied to the skin, making it to blister and then peel off. The new skin is usually smoother, less wrinkled but more sensitive. However, chemical peels can easily be taken too far, leading to serious skin damage that, in some cases, may be irreversible.
Chemical peels are best performed by trained dermatologists who will be able to customize your treatment to meet the needs of your skin. The chemical treatments that are safe to use at home simply aren’t effective and those that are effective really aren’t safe. I have been doing chemical peels for more than 2 years since I have a problem-prone skin and chemical peels are the surest way to enhance my skin’s health. I know that the procedure is really dangerous so I have never done it at home.
