Chemical or Micro Peels

Chemical or Micro Peels Overview

For those individuals who experience facial blemishes, wrinkles and uneven skin pigmentation as a result of aging, chemical or micro peels have become an alternative to help fight these signs of aging. Chemical peels use a chemical solution to help improve and smooth the texture of the skin by removing damaged outer layers.

Various types of chemical or micro peels include/but are not limited to:

  • Alphahydroxy acids (AHAs)
  • Trichloroacetic acid (TCA)
  • Phenol

Chemical peels can be done in conjunction with surgical procedures such as a facelift, eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), or facial fat grafting.

FAQ - Chemical or Micro Peels

Generally there is discoloration on the skin in the area where the peel was performed. This discoloration will generally begin to sluff off within the first 7-10 days following the treatment. At that time the skin can appears pink colored and firmer in appearance.

Sun protection following a peel is vital. Daily sunscreen is necessary to ensure that the skin is not burned and therefore rebound hyperpigmentation occurs. Follow all instructions for topical creams and lotions following this procedure. We generally recommend patients maintain a healthy daily regimen following this treatment to ensure proper management and sun protection.

Generally, these procedures are done in conjunction with other surgical procedures and are performed while the patient is asleep or can be done under field or nerve block while the patient is awake such as lower eyelids and malar/cheek areas as desired.
