The resultant incision is nicely hidden in the upper eyelid crease and within a few days is nearly invisible.

The peels applied under the direction of a physician range from 20-70%, with the appropriate concentration chosen based on your particular skin type and degree of skin damage. After cleansing the skin, the solution is applied and left on for 3-6 minutes during which time the skin will "tingle".
