A chemical peel is a skin-resurfacing procedure in which a chemical solution is applied to the skin to remove the top layers. The skin that grows back after a chemical peel is smoother and younger looking. Chemical peels are used to treat wrinkles, skin discoloration and scars — typically on the face. A chemical peel can be done alone or in combination with other cosmetic procedures. Chemical peels can be done at different depths — light, medium or deep — depending on your desired results.
A Practical Approach to Chemical Peels
Deep Chemical Peels Advanced, Phenol Skin Peel
If there was a treatment that could dramatically improve your facial wrinkles and sun spots, and has relatively short downtime, would you be interested? Vasu Karri is one of only a very small number of surgeons to perform Phenol peels, and the procedure has staggering effects. A phenol peel is the most powerful chemical peel available and is great for treating multiple fine wrinkles, sun spots and discoloured patches. The peel strength lies in its main ingredients, which are phenol also known as carbolic acid and croton oil. The peel penetrates deeply into the skin and strips away the outer layer which is replaced by new skin. It also causes more collagen production, and these two effects have a profound effect on wrinkles. The effects of phenol peel are cumulative.
Deep Chemical Peels

Alameda: Brentwood: A phenol peel is a deep peel that is sometimes recommended for treating severe wrinkles from fine lines to deep creases , sun damage, uneven skin tone and texture and may be used in the treatment of precancerous skin conditions. Phenol is particularly useful for minimizing the vertical lines that often form around the mouth as a result of aging.
Background: Chemoexfoliation, also known as chemical peeling, is a method of targeted cutaneous ablation using specific caustic agents that allow for rapid, predictable, and uniform thickness of chemoablation to a desired cutaneous depth, ultimately resulting in an improved appearance of skin. Objective: In this review, we provide an up-to-date analysis of all currently available chemical peels for dermatologic use, as well as a step-by-step instructional protocol for an algorithmic approach to treatment. In addition, a search of all commercially available, prescription-based peeling agents was performed to identify all products currently available in the United States market.
