If you’ve heard about deep chemical peels and have seen their beneficial effects, you may be wondering exactly how they work. It’s actually a very simple process.
During a deep chemical peel, the chemical Phenol (carbolic acid) soaks into the skin, traveling through the epidermis and superficial dermal layer to affect the lower dermal layer. Because of this deep penetration, deeper aesthetic imperfections are healed.
Once the Phenol has done its work, the healing process begins, producing new, smooth skin. To learn more about deep chemical peels, talk to board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Steve Ahmed. Arrange an appointment by contacting our office.
