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.

Procedure Technique

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.
