Hi Olivia, thank you for the question.
There are a number of different chemical peels on the market and we can divide them into 3 broad groups: superficial, medium and deep.
Chemical peels do work and the choice of peel is dependent on the condition of the skin (age, degree of sun damage, etc.), what improvements you would like to see, which possible side effects you are comfortable with and what downtime is acceptable for you. Superficial peels require a number of treatments, medium depth (TCA 20%) may require 1 or 2 treatments, and deep peels (Phenol) require only 1 treatment. My advice is to log on to my webpage (www.aestheticfacialenhancement.co.za) and in the search function tab type chemical peels and press the search button. A number of different chemical peels will come up and one can view their effects, indications, contraindications, side effects, etc.
Unfortunately, sleeping on two pillows will not help with the dark rings around the eyes.
