How are chemical peels performed?

Sometimes, this level of peel is called “exfoliation.” Light peels injure the entire epidermis and stimulate the regeneration of a new epidermis and may produce a burning sensation during the procedure. Medium depth peels involve injury to the upper level of the dermis to stimulate the formation of collagen and “plump” up the skin. 35% TCA, in combination with another chemical such as glycolic acid, is used safely with minimal discomfort. Deep peels involve injury to the mid dermis and are usually performed using a phenol solution and anesthesia.
