About Chemical Peels

Board-certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Frank L. Stile, offers chemical peels at his sprawling practice, Stile Aesthetics. Dr. Stile understands that your skin is constantly being exposed to environmental elements such as UV rays, dust, and air-pollution. These elements can cause damage to the skin and lead to sun spots, hyperpigmentation, and more. However, receiving a chemical peel at Stile Aesthetics in Las Vegas, NV, can bring great improvement to your skin. Chemical peels range from light, medium, and deep to accommodate a wide variety of skin conditions. This treatment is especially helpful in reducing the appearance of wrinkles, light acne scarring, and improving skin texture. It is also safe and effective to use on the face, neck, and hands. 

Ideal Candidates

The best candidates for chemical peels:

  • Are concerned about their skin tone or complexion
  • Have fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, or uneven texture
  • Desire long-term results
  • Desire fresher, healthier skin

What to Expect

Before any chemical peel, the skin will be assessed to determine the exact skin concerns and the most appropriate type of peel. The skin will be thoroughly cleansed and prepped prior to the peel. The length of treatment depends on the type of peel administered. Afterwards, the patient will need to follow a skincare routine to protect the skin and enhance the effects of the peel. Additional treatments may be scheduled for maximum results.

Superficial/Light Peels

The superficial/light chemical peel is the mildest form of peels that works by removing the outermost layer of skin. The peel is usually a diluted version of glycolic acid that is left on the skin for a few minutes. Afterwards, the skin will be slightly red, but there will be no downtime. The patient’s skin may peel slightly for 3 – 5 days and a series of treatments are usually required for optimal results

Medium Depth Peels

A medium depth peel removes several layers of skin to treat deeper skin problems. These peels are good for moderate to severe lines and wrinkles, as well as moderate scars and other skin problems. TCA, or Trichloreacetic Acid, is applied in a controlled manner for a specific length of time. After a certain point, the acid will be neutralized to stop its effects. The recovery period is about 10 days for this peel and the results will be more dramatic than a light peel. 

Deep Peel

A deep peel produces the most dramatic results, so it is reserved for more serious skin conditions. Since it’s an invasive procedure, local anesthesia or numbing cream may be used. Phenol acid is used for severe lines and wrinkles, various facial irregularities, and deep acne scars. It takes a patient about 14 days to recover since the peel is similar to second-degree burns. Most patients will only need one peel to reach their aesthetic goals.
