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.

Check out this interesting rhinoplasty case where I performed a combined primary rhinoplasty and sliding genioplasty. Fixing the crooked or deviated nose is very challenging for all rhinoplasty surgeons and the goal is to achieve a straighter nose because a perfectly straight nose does not exist. On the frontal view, you can see a nose that is midline and with beautiful dorsal aesthetic lines. On the profile view, you can visual a nice nasal profile with a slight break at the tip. The sliding genioplasty complements the nose and improves the overall proportions and balance of the face. A chin implant would not be able to achieve this amount of chin augmentation or chin length.

It’s never too early to starting thinking about that summer body. This patient underwent a mommy makeover or a breast reduction/lift and tummy tuck. Pay close attention to the belly button, this patient had an umbilical hernia, which made the reconstruction of her belly button even harder. Most plastic surgeons take their time trying to make the belly button look as natural as possible since the appearance of the belly button can be an obvious sign that the patient had a tummy tuck.

A facial feminization case that highlights how subtle changes can have a major impact on the balance and proportions of the face. Do the post-operative images appear softer, less angular, more refined, and more heart-shaped rather than square-shaped? Can you tell what surgeries were performed? Hint: look closely at the forehead/orbital rims, nose, chin, jawline, and neck. Posted with permission.

Post-operative results on a patient in her 50’s who wanted improvement in the contour of her neck and jawline. She felt like her neck showed her age and she wanted to appear as she did in her late 30’s. The patient underwent a lower facelift and neck lift. In the post-operative photos, you can see a nice and natural neck contour and improvement in the jawline (jowls were treated). Pay attention to the volume redistribution, now her volume is in a more youthful position at the level of the cheek bones. Her appearance changed from sad and tired to looking as though she is ready to take on the world. Posted with permission.

6 month follow-up on a patient who underwent a breast reduction and lift for neck and back pain. For this surgery, we reduce the size of the breast and lift the breast and nipple to a more aesthetic position on the chest. These surgeries are some of the most rewarding surgeries plastic surgeons perform due to the impact they have on neck/back pain and improvement in mobility, exercise, and activities of daily living. The scars continue to fade with time and by 1 year, they blend in with the surrounding skin color. Posted with permission.

Early follow-up (3 months) on a patient with thicker skin, who underwent a primary rhinoplasty. The patient’s goals were to reduce the dorsal hump, refine and lift the tip, but not change her nose significantly. In the post-operative photos you can see a natural result with improvement in the dorsal profile and tip aesthetics. Over the next 8-12 months, the tip will continue to improve in terms of swelling, refinement, and detail. Posted with permission.

A combined primary rhinoplasty and otoplasty or ear pinning. For the rhinoplasty, the goals of the surgery were to improve the deviation, remove the dorsal hump, and refine the tip. The patient had deviation to the right which was straightened. The dorsal hump was removed to create a nice profile. For the tip, the tip was de-projected, de-rotated and refined. In other words, the tip was brought back closer to the face, rotated downwards, and it was made smaller. Happy for this patient and the improvements we were able to achieve for her.

This young patient wanted to feel more confident about the appearance of her ears and to be able to wear her hair up without feeling self-conscious about the asymmetries of her ears. The patient underwent a unilateral otoplasty of the left ear. The patient now proudly wears her hair up and is living her best life. Posted with permission.
