What are Chemical Peels?
To provide the highest quality results from chemical peel treatments, Phillip Dauwe, M.D. Plastic Surgery provides you with several effective choices. Your personalized facial treatment with advanced chemical solutions (such as salicylic, glycolic, lactic, and trichloroacetic acids) will give you healthier, smoother, and more youthful-looking skin. At our Dallas, TX office, Dr. Phillip Dauwe's experienced team offers chemical peel treatments that minimize skin irregularities including wrinkles, fine lines, scars, dry patches, hyperpigmentation issues, and more. Chemical peels eliminate dead, damaged skin cells with the application of a specific peel on the skin, which causes the upper layer to slough off. When your skin recovers and starts to rejuvenate and repair itself, you will see a smoother, clearer complexion. A chemical peel facial is a noninvasive option to make your complexion luminous and is appropriate for the neck and face.
What are the Benefits of Chemical Peels?
Depending on the strength of your peel, you may anticipate a number of these benefits from your procedure at Phillip Dauwe, M.D. Plastic Surgery:
- Diminished facial creases and aging marks
- Balanced and calmed complexion
- Moisturized, revived skin feel
- Shrinkage of pores and other skin abnormalities
Variations of Chemical Peels
In our Dallas, TX office, we perform chemical peels in different strengths (light, medium, and deep) to fit our patients' skin concerns and goals.
Light peels: You can receive a light peel on your lunch break and go right back to your regular routine. This type of peel will remove the outer skin layer (the epidermis), giving your complexion a brighter appearance and smoother texture. We typically recommend that you get a light peel about once a month for the best revitalizing results.
Medium-depth peels: This strength of peel reaches deeper into the skin, and patients generally prefer to have this strength of facial rejuvenation treatment over an extended weekend. You may also need to prepare yourself for increased discomfort during and up to one hour after peel. Medium-depth peels are for patients who have deeper damage to their skin such as deeper wrinkles and darker pigmentation problems.
Deep peels: The strongest of the three levels of peels is the deep peel, and it will require the lengthiest recovery time. This is an aggressive procedure that could leave your face itchy, peeling, and swollen for several weeks. Patients who get a deep chemical peel typically have dark age spots, sun-damaged skin, prominent acne scars, or deep scars. As this level of peel is typically uncomfortable for patients, your aesthetician will provide you with anesthetic as a part of your peel.
"Dr. Dauwe and his staff are like a dream team! I legit leave wanting to be friends with his staff they are all so adorable. Seriously though, any type of surgery is so scary and they make the experience so comfortable. I felt like he listened to what I wanted and was honest with what was going to be realistic with my body type. I was referred by Dr.Dauwe by a few of my clients and am so thankful I chose him to do my procedure. If you’re in the Dallas area I wouldn’t recommend anyone else. Truly grateful to have had such an amazing experience! Thank you Dr. Dauwe for everything!"- T.C. / Google / Apr 30, 2019
"I am 12 weeks post-op from a breast reduction & lift. A surgery I’ve wanted for years, but was afraid of the procedure/recovery due to past experience with anesthesia. I had a few prior consultations, but knew exactly what I was going to do when I left Dr. Dauwe’s office. Preparation was thorough. Recovery was a breeze. Never one nauseous spell & only used pain meds for 2 days. This surgery changed my life. I would do it a hundred times over again."- K.T. / Google / Feb 02, 2024

"Dr. Dauwe and the entire Team and Office are absolutely amazing! They made me feel comfortable right away and were wonderful and extremely attentive and supportive through the entire process. I am 6 months post op from a BA, TT, and lipo of the flanks. I couldn’t be more ecstatic about my results! I had a front pooch and indentation at my scar line from three cesareans and lifeless breasts from breastfeeding - the indentation is completely gone, my torso looks ridiculously great, and my breasts look amazing, full, and beautiful without looking fake which is exactly what I wanted! It’s given me my confidence back that I had in my younger years, only more now!!"- C.B. / Google / Dec 29, 2023

When your procedure begins at Phillip Dauwe, M.D. Plastic Surgery, we will have you lying in a relaxed position to administer your treatment. A team member will make sure your skin is cleansed before applying the customized solution to the face and/or neck. We will brush the solution onto the skin and let it work for an appropriate length of time, which will be determined in your chemical peel consultation. Finally, we will wash the peel off your skin and apply a neutralizing agent. Patients may want to bring sunscreen and a hat to wear outside after the procedure to avoid sun exposure.
