Chemical Peels

How a Chemical Peel Can Improve the Skin’s Appearance and Health

woman close up face asian girl with clean fresh healthy skinChemical peels are a specialized type of facial skin treatment that uses a chemical solution to improve the skin’s appearance and health. A particular blend of ingredients creates a solution that is applied to the face, neck, or hands and works by exfoliating the outermost layer of dead skin cells. In doing so, you can reveal newer and smoother layers of skin underneath. Dr. Sean Weiss of Metairie, LA, is excited to offer chemical peels as a solution for individuals who want clearer, more youthful-looking skin!

How Are Chemical Peels Used by Our Patients?

Chemical peels provide a wide range of benefits to the patients who visit us at Sean Weiss Facial Plastic Surgery. This treatment is tailored to your unique needs and can reduce wrinkles, age spots, dark circles under the eyes, and other signs of aging. In addition, they might also be used to reduce the appearance of sun-damaged skin and acne scarring. Depending on the type of peel used and its strength, visible results can be seen after one treatment. However, several treatments may be necessary for optimal results for peels that are not as aggressive or strong as others.

What Type of Peel Should I Use?

Chemical peels come in varying strengths, from superficial to deep peels. Superficial peels are milder than deeper ones and use glycolic acid or lactic acid to provide a more even complexion. Medium-depth peels are slightly more aggressive and typically contain trichloroacetic acid (TCA). Deep peels use phenol as the main ingredient and can have serious side effects, such as permanent discoloration of the skin. Be sure to discuss your goals with Dr. Sean Weiss to determine which type of peel would be most suitable for you. He is a double-board certified facial plastic surgeon who can educate you on the best ways to achieve the results you desire!
