What is a deep/chemical/medical skin peel? A deep skin peel (often referred to as a medical skin peel, or chemical skin peel) uses agents such as phenol and croton oil to induce a chemical burn which would, once healed, resurface the treated area of skin and can give an improvement to both tone and texture of the skin, including improving the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
In general terms a peel solution is applied to the skin creating an even and controlled shedding of several layers of the skin cells. This stimulates new collagen production, increased new skin cell formation and skin elasticity and so improves the hydration properties, therefore allowing the new skin to be seen. The new layer of skin is much fresher, smoother and has a more even tone appearance.
With improvements in technology, the results of deep skin peels have been found to be less reliable and complication rates higher than the more preferred solution of Laser Skin Resurfacing. Medical or chemical skin peels should only be carried out by an experienced and qualified plastic surgeon, or a cosmetic dermatologist.
