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.
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
"The BEST people work here! I initially was planning to see Dr. Dauwe for buccal removal but when he spoke with me he suggested filler instead. I can’t say enough times how thankful I am for that honest opinion, he could’ve taken my money (let’s be honest most would) but instead I got jawline, cheek and under eye filler with Tess and she did absolutely incredible! Everyone in the office is so kind and I’m so happy Dr. Dauwe pointed me in the right direction rather than going through with a procedure that he didn’t think would align with the results I wanted. I’m beyond grateful I chose to come to this office and love my results. Every single person is so warm and welcoming and they’re doing business the right way. I could not recommend Dr. Dauwe and the entire staff enough."- S.A. / Google / Sep 02, 2022
"My skin was so bad I sometimes did not want to leave my house. I had fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots and no glow. I was ready to give up and felt there was nothing I could do UNTIL I met with Kylie! She recommended a Halo treatment stating it would really help. Although I was hesitant as to the results, I went ahead with the procedure. After just two weeks the change in my skin is absolutely amazing.. My fine lines and wrinkles are so much better and my dark spots have basically disappeared. Not only do I have a glow to my skin but now I am happy to get out and about. Kylie is so knowledgeable, kind and patient. She can answer any questions you may have whether it be a procedure or any type of skin care. When meeting with her you can truly tell that this is her passion. The skin regime she recommended to me is perfect. My skin will continue to improve over the next several months and I can’t tell you how pleased I am and thankful for Kylie. I 100% recommend Kylie."- S.P. / Google / Aug 19, 2022
"Dr Dauwe from start to finish made me feel so confident throughout the whole process. He really listens and hears what your concerns are. He was humble and kind. It’s tough figuring out who to really trust and I trust his work wholeheartedly. His staff couldn’t be more caring and help answer any questions big or small. So thankful for him and his team!!"- A.W. / Google / Aug 18, 2022
"Hard to really put into words the impact my surgery has had on my life, but I will say that Dr. Dauwe and his whole staff has made this experience what I would call life changing. Dr. Dauwe has a calm, humble, demeanor, and I had been following him on IG based on a friend who mentioned he did her breast aug a few years back. When I met with his team in January they were already booked out almost 6 months for a mommy makeover. That’s a good thing! You want to find someone who is booked. Not only did I love his conservative nature and perspective in what I was looking to have done, but he spent way more time with me answering my questions than what you typically find in the healthcare space. I’ve been in healthcare working with physicians for almost 20 years, so it is saying something when a physician has no problem answering all the myriad questions you have when you are going to have a big procedure done. They also made what could be an awkward feeling, feel very normal. He has great eye contact, and his office manager Julie is great at her job and been in the industry a long time. But I have to say, what comforted and confirmed for me the most was his office staff and their friendliness, willingness to help, and their knowledge about my procedure and the process. Sara in particular is a gem of a human. I thought for my pre-op she was just being nice answering all my questions and giving me suggestions, and then when I saw her for my post op I realized: MAN! She’s not just a front desk person, she’s like THE pre and post op professional! I had called on day 3 after my surgery and she was amazing to work with on my meds. She was so patient both before and after my surgery – and it makes you feel like you are their only patient, though it looks to be a busy practice, you don’t feel that way. It’s not a mill, this is not the kind of place that doesn’t care for you and want to answer all your questions. They are truly genuine, I really felt that from Sara, Julie, Bre, and Dr. Dauwe. I haven’t seen Tess but I’m sure I will at some point, I’ve heard great things. This is a rock star team and if you’re on the fence or haven’t scheduled a consult and really walked out feeling very confident in the team – come and get one here – he will tell you his professional opinion. I have another colleague who came here before me and had a consult and he honestly told her to wait until a certain time – so he’s not doing this for volume – he really wants to do the right thing for you. But truly Sara is awesome and I can’t say enough good things about her – you are in good hands with this practice. Thank you, Dr. Dauwe and team."- H.S. / Google / Aug 11, 2022
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.
