Chemical Peels Dublin OH

Chemical PeelsA chemical peel is an aesthetic procedure performed in our Dublin, OH facial plastic surgery facility to help patients achieve better skin tone and to remove fine lines, especially on the face. The chemical solution removes outer layers of skin that are damaged by age, sun, acne, wrinkles, or pigmentation problems. Removing the outer skin prompts the body to generate a new layer of refreshed and rejuvenated skin cells. Some chemical peels may be appropriate for darker skin complexions.

Reasons for Considering a Chemical Peel

A chemical peel is a great option for people who want to correct problems caused by sun damage and the early signs of aging without having to go through a highly invasive procedure. This treatment provides a number of aesthetic benefits, including:

  • Reduce facial wrinkles and lines.
  • Improve sun-damaged skin.
  • Correct age spots and pigmentation problems.
  • Lighten scars (especially from acne).
  • Treat precancerous skin lesions.

General Procedures

At the time of your procedure, any active skin disease, infection, or acne needs to be under control in order to maximize results. There are several different types of chemical solutions that can be used, ranging from a mild solution to a very strong one. We will help you select what is best for you based on your skin condition, color, and desired result.

During the procedure, the skin is first cleansed of oils. A solution is then carefully applied and is allowed to remain on the skin for a short time in order to remove the layers of damaged skin. At this point, the skin will turn white, a frost-like effect. The skin is then neutralized and cleansed. Finally, an ointment is applied to the skin to aid in healing.

Recovery Process

Generally, post-operative instructions call for careful face washing, applying ointments as directed, and avoiding sun exposure to speed up the healing process and recovery time. An ointment and/or dressings are applied immediately following the procedure to aid in the healing process and to minimize swelling. 

The skin will have a pinkish color, and a thin crust may form over the area that was treated. Patients sometimes report minor pain associated with the procedure, which can be treated effectively with oral medication. While complications are rare, patients can minimize potential problems by carefully following the post-operative directions. Recovery time varies depending upon the extent of the chemical peel.

How Much Do Chemical Peels Cost?

The cost of a chemical peel varies from patient to patient depending on the type used and the severity of the skin problems that need to be addressed.

An analysis of your skin will be performed during your consultation to determine the best treatment plan for your unique needs. We will then discuss the associated cost of the chemical peel and the payment options available to you.
