Are there any side effects from a chemical peel treatment?

My question is whether there are side effects that result from a chemical peel? I expect that there would be redness and sensitivity from the nature of the treatment but is there a chance for harm to major organs?

Depending on the type of peel, there could be side effects with the heartbeat.. Sensitivity and redness are known side effects as well.

There is definitely expected healing time from a chemical peel which can be as long as 10 days depending on how aggressive the peel is.  Certain chemical peel agents require heart and blood pressure monitoring during the procedure but when properly done there should be no systemic side effects.
