Chemical peels offer a medical grade skin exfoliation and acceleration of the skin’s natural rejuvenation process. The advantages of chemical peels include the removal of skin imperfections such as lines, wrinkles, pigmentation discoloration, moles, acne, blemishes, and scars. Chemical peels also stimulate collagen production in the deeper layers of the skin, improving the skin’s natural support structure. Several different chemical peels of various strengths are available to meets everyone’s needs. Dr. Schulman may recommend chemical peels as part of a comprehensive treatment plan that may also include microdermabrasion, botox, injectable fillers, or surgical rejuvenation.
Dr. Schulman is one of a select number of plastic surgeons that provides chemical peels in his practice to serve the needs of both women and men interested in improving the appearance of the face, neck, chest, hands, and back. Though recovery may be involved in the deeper chemical peels, the benefits of youthful vibrant skin make it worth it.
Glycolic Acid Peels: Glycolic Acid peel is a light peel designed to minimize recovery and optimize results. The goal of this peel is to remove outer layers of skin, reducing fine lines, dry rough skin, acne, and pigmentation discoloration. Immediate improvement is brighter, smoother skin. More than one treatment may be required to see substantial, longstanding results. Many people undergo regular glycolic acid treatments to maintain youthful vibrant skin.
Lactic Acid Peel: Lactic acid peel is designed to treat sun damage, fine to moderate wrinkles, excessive dry skin, dull skin, and blotchy skin. Results are immediately evident with an immediate return to work possible. More than one treatment may be required to see substantial, longstanding results. Many people undergo regular lactic acid peels to maintain the benefits.
TCA Chemical Peel: TCA, or trichloracetic acid, is a deeper level peel than glycolic and lactic acid peels. TCA penetrates to deep layers of the skin, removing deeper imperfections. TCA is a great choice for moderate to severe lines, and more significant skin discolorations. It is also a great option to improve the appearance of the under-eye area and the lines around the mouth. Recovery may be a week as the imperfections flake away. After this healing period, the improved results are visible and will last a long time.
Combination Peels: These peels use a specialized combination of Glycolic Acid, Lactic Acid, TCA, and medical-grade anti-oxidants and peptides to improve the appearance and health of your skin. There is a variety of these peels available and Dr. Schulman and his Skin Care Staff will help select a specific treatment that is best for you. These peels may be done alone or in combination with other skin treatments such as microdermabrasions. A series of peels may be needed to get the most improvement in your skin.
