Chemical peels offer a nonsurgical way to significantly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth and under the eyes. In addition, chemical peels can be used to remove spotting caused by genetics, sun damage, and aging, and are effective in treating certain types of acne.
At Star Plastic Surgery, we are pleased to offer chemical peel skin rejuvenation as a nonsurgical alternative for improving your complexion and restoring confidence in your appearance. Our Michigan plastic surgeons can use chemical peels to give you the youthful, appealing look you deserve.
Who is a Candidate for Chemical Peels?
Chemical peels can address a variety of skin concerns, including:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Uneven pigmentation
- Shallow acne scars
- Age spots
This procedure is best for patients with lighter colored skin. For patients with darker skin, a chemical peel can produce uneven results. Some patients may benefit more from laser skin resurfacing to remove wrinkles and skin spots. When you come to Star Plastic Surgery for your facial rejuvenation consultation, one of our doctors will carefully assess your skin to help you determine what process if best suited to meet your needs.
The Chemical Peel Procedure
To reduce common imperfections with a chemical peel, a solution is applied to your entire face that causes the surface layer of skin to blister and peel off. This prompts your body to generate more collagen which results in a new layer of skin that is healthier and blemish free.
Professional chemical peels include:
- Obagi Blue Peel®
- Glycolic/TCA Blend
Chemical peels are widely available at beauty salons and health spas throughout the metro area, but only Star Plastic Surgery offers you the Star Plastic Surgery Advantage. When you choose us for your chemical peel rejuvenation procedure you are selecting plastic surgeons with years of experience in providing patients with exceptionally beautiful results. We are entirely devoted to your satisfaction, and will work with you from the moment you walk into our office to ensure 100 percent satisfaction and safety.
Chemical Peel Recovery
Recovery time will depend on the depth of the chemical peel. Swelling and redness are expected after the treatment. For light peels, most patients can return to their everyday activities right away. For deeper peels, a protective ointment may be applied to the skin and dressings may be applied. Discomfort may occur, particularly with deep peels.
