A deep peel is a chemical treatment where concentration of more than 35% Tricloroacetic acid (TCA) or phenol is applied to a skin to remove its damaged outer layer.  While some people have regretted undergoing deep skin peel, even more have registered success with the same. Research has shown the difference between happiness and regret to be in the amount of information one has.

In this piece, we look at the do’s and don’ts of deep peeling in as simple terms as possible.

Do’s

The most important thing before doing a deep peel is to ask yourself if you REALLY need it. Deep peels are usually used in advanced and severe stages of skin damage. Before trying a deep facial peel for example, consider lighter peel options. Products such as Homepeel’s Green Herb Skin Peel, Flakey Skin Remover and Regenerative Cell Growth Serum might just turn out to be a better and safer option. Many rave reviews testify to that.

Consider the deep chemical peel cost. While costs usually vary according to doctor, deep peeling sits between the 600$ to 900$ price range. This sometimes increases to up to 6,000$ when factors such as cost of anesthesia, possible hospital stay and use of the surgical facility are brought into the picture. You need to know if you can afford this.

If you have made up your mind that you need a deep chemical peel, then see an experienced dermatologist. Aside from certifying that you indeed need a deep peel, he will advise whether to do a deep facial peel or a deep skin peel. When visiting the dermatologist, carry with you all the reports you can find about your medical history as he will need them. He will also advise you about the risks as well as the benefits before you actually sign off on this.

Don’ts

Do not do a deep peel if an expert dermatologist advises against it. The risks involved include severe scarring, swelling, infection, cold sore outbreaks and changes in skin tone.

Do not smoke at least a month before and after the deep peel. Further, avoid any prescribed skin care drugs (an acne treatment) for as long as possible before the deep peel and ensure that your skin is free of infections. People with a history (personal or family) of heart issues are not considered good candidates for deep peeling.

Avoid a deep chemical peel if you might not have at least ten days cleared on your calendar. Deep peels come with enormous downtime. Also be ready to avoid the sun and constantly wear sun protection during healing, which can be slow and arduous.

Do not consider it if you have a dark skin tone seeing as deep peeling might leave on you scars and uneven skin pigmentation.

The process of deep peeling normally takes an hour or two to complete. Sometimes it may require sedation. A qualified doctor is able to ascertain one’s candidacy based on medical history- including previous chemical peel usage, skin type and tone and lifestyle (e.g smoking or drug use) among other factors. For best results, it’s best you listen to him.
