Deep Chemical Peel — Bellevue Non-Surgical
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 the chemical’s strength and longer application time, more pronounced aesthetic imperfections are healed.
Once the phenol has done its work, the healing process begins, producing new, smooth skin. A deep chemical peel is an outpatient procedure. A deep chemical peel will require about three weeks of recovery and care.
The deep chemical peel can also be done using a trichloroacetic acid (TCA) concentration that is greater than 50%.
