If you know about deep chemical peel treatments and have seen their benefits experienced by others, you may be wondering how it all works.

The process is actually quite simple. A chemical known as phenol, which is an aromatic organic compound, works its way through the skin, penetrating the epidermis and superficial dermal layer to influence the lower dermal layer. Because of phenol’s acidity, along with an increased application time, more definitive aesthetic corrections can be made.

Once the phenol has done its work, the healing process begins, producing new, smooth skin. Though deep chemical peel treatments are a non-invasive outpatient procedure, clients are generally advised not to drive home. The best option is to have a ride arranged before the procedure.
