Tempus Fugit – Time Flies.
As you age, changes to your body and skin begin to show the effects of time, your genes, the environment and missing hormones. But you aren’t alone. Today, more and more women and men are turning to chemical peels as a treatment for blemishes, large pores, acne scars, age spots, uneven pigmentation and pre-cancerous growths.
It’s true. A chemical peel is a great way to achieve smoother, more youthful-looking skin.
The facial peel is one of the oldest cosmetic procedures in the world. Today, peels are popular because they offer nearly immediate results and can be performed as an outpatient procedure.
A chemical peel is a controlled injury to the skin. An alpha or beta hydroxide acid, resorcinol or other acid solution is applied to the skin, removing its damaged, outer layers, smoothing and enhancing its texture.
Patients with light hair and fair skin are great candidates for chemical peels. Those who have darker skin may still achieve good results. Although chemical peels can improve the appearance of fine lines, they are not designed to treat deep wrinkles.
At The Center For Plastic Surgery, we offer a variety of peels, from lighter peels to skin-sensitive peels to deeper, more potent peels. We tailor the strengths of our peels to your individual needs to achieve the best results with the least risk and down time.
To prevent pigmentary problems with the TCA and Phenol/Croton Oil peels, we require our patients to be on the Obagi® System or Hydroquinone for six weeks before the peel.
Rest assured. We will carefully evaluate your skin to determine how to provide you with the best possible results.
Your peel will be performed in our office.
Your new pink skin will emerge in about 7-10 days.
The pink color will fade but your skin will be sensitive.
Avoid the sun until the pinkness fades and use sunscreen every day.
Recovery time is zero to two weeks depending on the peel used.
A peel would, indeed, be wonderful!
