Peeling extends deeper into the lower dermal layer of the skin. These can help to reduce the appearance of deeper lines, wrinkles and scars.
PLEASE BE AWARE: chemical peels cannot change your pore size, improve loose skin (saggy skin generally needs to be treated by surgery), or deal with deep scarring. No matter how deep the peel, your skin will re-grow and should heal fully.
If you choose to have a deeper peel – maybe to get rid of wrinkles or acne scars – when the skin re-grows, it will not “remember” the blemishes that were there before. As the new skin develops, a new band of collagen in the dermis will grow along with a thicker epidermis. Hence, your skin will appear smoother and more perfect than before the treatment.
The deeper the peel, the greater the potential for improvement to the skin but also the greater the risk of side effects, especially in dark skin types.
