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.
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
"I couldn't be more pleased with my results and Dr Stile. After two kids I decided to have a breast augmentation and I am so glad I went to Dr Stile. He was very professional and told me exactly what to expect and made me feel at ease (I was very nervous of getting the procedure done) , his nurse Natalie was awesome and the rest of his staff was very pleasant. He actually exceeded my expectations!"- N.C. / Yelp / Jul 26, 2018
"Dr. Stile is amazing. From the moment I met him I knew he would be my surgeon of choice. He took the time to listen and to explain the surgery in detail. The day of surgery he came and talked to me and gave me a big hug and said let's do this!! I felt so at ease I never had any 2nd thoughts. My follow up care has been amazing as well. Thanks Dr. Stile :)"- D.G. / Yelp / Jul 18, 2018
"Review on behalf of a patient who got Radiesse injections by Rakhi. The results for the jaw, under eye, and lips couldn't be more stunning! She was initially nervous about the swelling, but after a week, the results showed themselves to be beautiful. She is normally hesitant regarding injections as no one seems to satisfy what she's looking for. It's safe to say she will see Rakhi for any future treatments. She gives Rakhi her highest praise and recommends her to anyone looking for natural and stunning results."- S.S. / Yelp / Jul 15, 2018
"Amazing Surgeon!!! Dr. Stile is a perfectionist and really understands what it takes to make a woman feel beautiful. He's honest and is realistic about what you should expect from results. He had to correct some previous work done by another surgeon and I have never been happier! His staff is super friendly and professional. I have recommended him to several friends. I will only ever see him for any further needs."- S.J. / Yelp / Jul 11, 2018
"I'm am very pleased with my experience with Dr Stile and his team! I had a tummy tuck, liposuction on my flanks and neck. I'm a plus size girl that had 2 pregnancies and Dr explained what happens to your abdominal after having children, something I never really realized. It was important that he educated me about this process. I felt at ease and after doing my research on his work I knew he was the right plastic surgeon for me. DrStile personally called me before my procedure and told me everything was gonna be fine and make sure I get rest. The day of the surgery the 2 nurses that I took amazing care of me was Kelly and Shannon. And from my pre-op and post-op was nurse Yesenia! She helped answer a lot of my questions, and made feel comfortable through every step My results after my healing process was better than I expected! I did have minor pain after the 1st , 3 days but overall it was I wasn't in much pain. Anyway overall I'm very pleased with my results, and he made me feel " my beautiful " again for me! Thank you again Dr Stile for your professional and perfection!"- S.L. / Yelp / Jul 03, 2018
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.
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.
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.
