Chemical Peel

Chemical Peel Chicago

For facial rejuvenation and specifically skin resurfacing, there are a number of modalities that Plastic Surgeons use to achieve healthy and more youthful skin. If you’ve been struggling with the early signs of aging but would prefer a non-invasive rejuvenation treatment, a chemical peel is an ideal solution for you.

 

What is a Chemical Peel?

A chemical peel is a topical solution that is applied to the skin of the face and neck in order to remove the top few layers of skin. By removing the top layers of skin, the chemical peel acts to resurface the skin by allowing the body to repair and rejuvenate itself; revealing more even-toned, smoother, and healthier skin. 

 

What can a Chemical Peel Treat?

Chemical peels can be used to treat specific skin conditions such as fine lines and wrinkles, acne, scars, dry patches, pigmentation irregularities, and more. A chemical peel is a non-surgical technique that has a quick recovery time depending on the type of peel used. Chemical peels come in different strengths: light peels, medium-depth peels, and deep peels.

  • Light Chemical Peels – can be performed during your lunch hour and you can return to work immediately afterward. Light peels remove only the most superficial layer of skin leaving your skin with a refreshed and radiant appearance afterward. Many patients will get a light chemical peel once per month to maintain their skin glow.
  • Medium-Depth Chemical Peels – are deeper peels that are usually performed before the weekend to allow 2-3 days for recovery. Medium-depth peels are used for deeper lines and wrinkles and to address pigmentation issues of the skin. This type of peel penetrates deeper within the skin, hence the more aggressive rejuvenation and longer recovery period.
  • Deep Chemical Peels –  are the deepest and strongest peels we use and they require the longest recovery time. This type of peel penetrates deep within the skin, which can be used to treat deep lines/wrinkles, scars, extensive pigmentation issues, and significant sun damage. After a deep peel, the skin will be red and swollen for a few weeks, therefore, the recovery is longer. Since this peel is deeper, a topical anesthetic it used before the treatment to provide the patient with increased comfort during the procedure.

 

Good Candidates for a Chemical Peel

As you grow older, your skin will eventually thin and develop fine lines and wrinkles that will give you an older, tired, and sometimes angry look. If these early signs of aging have taken hold over your youthful aesthetic, you’ll make a good candidate for a chemical peel treatment. It’s a safe and effective procedure that can be used on a broad range of skin types.

 

How Much Does a Chemical Peel Cost?

Every patient is different and the cost of a chemical peel varies depending on the degree of correction required to meet your aesthetic goals. During a consultation, we’ll assess your skin and talk to you about the goals you have for your end result. We’ll develop a treatment plan tailored to your specific needs and discuss all costs associated during your consultation.

This is a great case highlighting how we manage a crooked nose after a previous septoplasty. In this case the dorsal hump was removed, the nose straightened by structuring the nose with rib cartilage, and the tip was lifted, rotated and refined. Beautiful and natural 6 month result for this patient. Posted with permission.

Beautiful breast augmentation result for this patient. In this case we used a 350 cc gel implant, and placed the implant through a periareolar approach and in a submuscular plane. The patient is 5’4” and 125 lbs and went from a B cup to a full C/small D cup. Posted with permission.

This is a great case to highlight the complexities associated with creating an aesthetic tip and how small changes can yield significant aesthetic improvement. In this case, the patient had a droopy tip, hanging columella, and too much nostril show. In the post-operative views you can visualize a tip that is lifted, more projected, and the presence of a more aesthetic alar-columellar relationship. Happy for this patient and her beautiful and natural result. Posted with permission.

Proud of our research team for getting this published. In this article, we developed a unique risk assessment tool to predict major complications in facial aesthetic surgery. Thank you to the Aesthetic Surgery Journal for publishing our work.

The hardest type of rhinoplasties for plastic surgeons to perform are cleft rhinoplasties. A major reason is that the anatomy of the nose and midface are asymmetric, therefore, you have an asymmetric nose sitting on top of an asymmetric midface. In this case, I used rib cartilage to rebuild the cartilage of the nose and fat transfer to improve asymmetries of the midface and lips. In the post-operative frontal views, you can see a straighter nose, the tip has been lifted, and the right nostril has been brought down and inwards. On profile view, you can see the dorsal hump was lowered, the tip of the nose has been lifted, rotated, and refined. The fat was placed in the cheeks and upper lip to improve the midface deficiency that is common in cleft lip patients. Posted with permission.

Plastic surgery can be dramatic or understated. This is a before and after with subtle changes to improve the proportions and aesthetics of the nose in a natural way. This patient wanted only small changes of the dorsum and tip. In the post-operative photos, you can visualize the dorsal hump has been removed and the tip has been refined, slightly rotated and projected. Posted with permission.

Couldn’t be happier for this beautiful patient and her natural before and after results. This patient is 3 months out from a deep plane or sub-SMAS facelift, neck lift, and facial fat transfer. Pay close attention to the neck, jawline, and midface or cheeks. In the post-operative views you can see a well-defined neck and jawline. The face appears less bottom heavy, there is restoration of the midface volume, and the overall facial configuration is more heart-shaped and youthful. Posted with permission.

It’s been a minute but this is a great before and after of a facial feminization case and this patient is only 6 weeks out from surgery. Pay close attention to the hairline, the forehead, orbital rims, eyebrows, nose, chin and jawline. Does this patient look like they had major surgery 6 weeks ago? Posted with permission.
