Deep peels are the most invasive type of peel available, and they can involve a long period of downtime. But even though this is a major treatment, it offers profound benefits for wrinkles, fine lines, sun damage, and hyperpigmentation.
Phenol peels offer the most dramatic results because the skin is forced into creating new, thick collagen. But because deep peels are so strong-they are always performed with anesthesia and followed by pain medication-they are usually used only on the face since they can cause scarring on the neck and other parts of the body.
Keep in mind that phenol peels, which are usually performed only once in your life, can cause a demarcation line on your skin, regardless of your skin type, and require a healing time of at least two weeks.
