What is the highest level chemical peel?


The highest level of chemical peel is a deep peel. This type of peel produces the most dramatic results, penetrating the top layer of skin—the epidermis — down through the lower layers of the dermis, which forms the layers of skin beneath the epidermis.
 
In general, chemical peels are only recommended for deep, severe wrinkles, scars, extensive sun damage, and precancerous growths. Whereas other chemical peels often require several sessions to achieve the results the patient is looking for, deep chemical peels typically only need one session. However, deep chemical peels involve longer recovery times than lighter peels. Recovery from a deep chemical peel involves around two weeks of downtime, followed by weeks or months of redness in the treatment area.

Can you do chemical peels as an esthetician?


Estheticians can perform both light and moderate chemical peels, but only licensed physicians, such as dermatologists or plastic surgeons, can perform deep chemical peels. Light chemical peels only impact the epidermis, while moderate chemical peels affect both the epidermis and dermis, but do not go as deep as deep chemical peels.

What is a Level 3 chemical peel?


A level 3 chemical peel is a deep chemical peel that uses high concentrations of trichloroacetic (TCA) acid or carbolic acid, also known as phenol, to repair deep wrinkles, and severe sun damage, and reduce acne scars. TCA and carbolic acid are more vital acids than those used for light and moderate chemical peels. As such, it impacts deeper layers of skin and involves lengthier recovery and downtime. A level 3 chemical peel procedure also takes longer than level 1 and level 2 chemical peels.

Are there different levels of chemical peels?


There are three different levels of chemical peels. A level 1 chemical peel is referred to as a light peel or superficial peel. A level 2 chemical peel is known as a moderate peel or medium-depth peel. A level 3 chemical peel is known as a deep peel.
 
The different levels of peels use different substances to perform the peel. For example, superficial peels typically use alpha-hydroxy acids (AHA) or beta-hydroxy acids (BHA), while medium-depth peels use TCA acids to perform the peel. That said, medium-depth peels use lower concentrations of TCA acids than deep chemical peels. Medium-depth peels may also use glycolic acid, lactic acid, pyruvic acid, or a combination of those acids to make what is known as a Jessner peel.
 
During a level 1 chemical peel, the esthetician uses a brush, cotton ball, gauze, or sponge to apply the AHA or BHA solution to the treatment area, causing the skin to whiten. After leaving the solution on for three to seven minutes, the esthetician applies a neutralizing solution to remove the acid solution from the skin.
 
With a level 2 chemical peel, an esthetician will use a cotton-tipped applicator to apply the TCA acid solution to the skin. They let the solution settle in for a few minutes before applying a cold compress to soothe the skin, as it’s common for patients to experience burning and stinging for up to 20 minutes after application. No neutralizing solution is needed with a medium chemical peel, as the solution eventually neutralizes itself after a certain amount of time has passed.
 
During level three chemical peels, patients are given intravenous (IV) fluids and their heart rate is monitored. A medical provider uses a cotton-tipped applicator to apply carbolic acid to the skin in 15-minute intervals to limit the patient’s exposure to phenol. Like level 2 chemical peels, deep peels do not need a neutralizing solution.
