Superficial to Medium-Depth Peels: Your Options
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Alizadeh offers peels in varying strengths to address different levels of damage and aging: a superficial chemical peel gently exfoliates the outer layer of the epidermis, correcting uneven skin tone and texture. It can also improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Recovery time is minimal, and though some patients experience minor redness and irritation, these symptoms diminish within a day or two.
A medium-depth chemical peel can create dramatic improvement because it targets deeper skin cells and addresses more significant signs of aging and environmental skin damage. Recovery from this type of treatment requires 7 to 14 days. A medium-depth chemical peel can help skin appear smoother, more even, and noticeably rejuvenated.
Dr. Alizadeh’s team perform the 10% all the way to 30% TCA peels, as well as the Blue peel, alpha hydroxy acid peels (AHA), beta hydroxy acid peels (BHA), Jessners's peels, and retinoic acid peels. Depending upon your needs, your peel may be performed with the comfort of Pronox nitrous sedation and rapid recovery system.
Patients who request a chemical peel at Cosmoplastic Surgery will first receive a thorough skin analysis with the 3 Dimensional Vectra and VISIA® Complexion Analysis System to assess the level of damage and determine which treatment would deliver optimal aesthetic results. In some cases, Dr. Alizadeh may recommend alternative or complementary procedures such as laser skin resurfacing or dermabrasion to best meet your specific skincare needs.
