Chemical Peel in Houston, Texas

A Chemical Peel helps to improve the appearance of the skin by smoothing the outer layer of skin and reducing the severity of wrinkles, scarring and texture.

What is a Chemical Peel?

A Chemical Peel is a procedure used to improve the appearance of the skin on the face, neck, chest and hands. A chemical solution is applied to the skin at a doctor’s office or surgery center that causes it to exfoliate and eventually peel off, creating a controlled wound that, when healed, reveals smoother, less wrinkled, regenerated skin.

There are three basic levels of chemical peels offered at TOPS, each varying in intensity and benefits.

Different Types of Chemical Peels

Superficial, light, or “lunchtime” chemical acid peels utilize alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) or other mild acids, such as lactic and salicylic acid, to penetrate and exfoliate only the outer layer of skin. In turn, this reveals younger, smoother, refreshed-looking skin free from mild skin discoloration and rough skin on the face, neck, chest or hands.

Medium level chemical acid peels use glycolic or trichloroacetic acid to penetrate the outer and middle layers of skin to remove damaged skin cells. This medium depth peel is effective in treating age spots, fine lines, wrinkles and mid-level skin discoloration. It is also effective in treating precancerous skin growths known as “actinic keratosis.”

Deep chemical peels utilize tricholoracetic acid, or phenol, to deeply penetrate the midtier layer of skin to remove damaged and dead skin cells. This deep chemical peel produces dramatic results in treating moderate lines, age spots, freckles and shallow scars. Deep chemical peels can only be performed once.

What can you expect for recovery after Chemical Peel?

Your recovery will depend on the type of chemical acid peel performed at The Oaks Plastic Surgery. Depending on the level of the chemical agent, recovery may vary from mild peeling and redness to swelling and blisters. Bandages will be applied to your face, and skin exposure should be limited for months after your procedure due to your new skin being fragile. We at TOPS recommended a broad spectrum physical sunscreen to minimize sun damage.

As plastic surgeons, the physicians at The Oaks Plastic Surgery are highly skilled in Medical Spa techniques and have in-depth knowledge of facial anatomy and the aging process.
