Stronger than other peels, the deep chemical peel is purposed to permeate the epidermal layer and penetrate down into the dermal layers. There, a carefully controlled burn is established for a specified amount of time, uplifting old skin cells to allow for new ones to take its place. As a result, the skin is significantly smoother and complete with a rejuvenated appearance.
Patients are advised to stay away from the sun for several days following the deep chemical peel procedure. It is also a good idea to have a driver available to take you home when the treatment is complete. This is due in part to the sedation utilized to control any discomfort with the application.
