What is a patch test: 
A patch test for chemical peels is a skin test with applying a small amount of certain chemical peel solution or cream on the small portion on the elbow, thigh or below ears for 2-3 days to see your skin’s sensitivity. 

If you never experience any chemical peel in the past and whether you decide to have the chemical peel done by a professional at clinic or by yourself at home, it is highly recommended to use any chemical peel products after having a patch test and waiting for 24-72 hours for result, only to see if your skin can tolerate any chemical peel product.
