About Chemical Peels
Offering only the best in chemical peel facial treatments, we provide our patients with different options for a professional chemical solution (such as glycolic, salic, lactic, Jessner's and TCA Trichloreacetic acids) for healthier, smoother skin. At our Dallas, TX office Elevate Medical Spa and Cosmetic Surgery, led by board-certified plastic surgeons Drs Thornwell Parker and Kevin Hanz, our team helps minimize skin abnormalities like wrinkles, scars, fine lines, rough patches, hyperpigmentation issues, and more. Chemical peels dissolve damaged, dead skin cells with a customized peel on your skin, which causes the visible layer to peel off. As your skin heals and begins to rejuvenate and repair itself, you may notice a clearer, smoother complexion. A chemical peel treatment is a nonsurgical option to make your skin radiant and may be used for both the neck and face.
Variations of Chemical Peels
At our Dallas office, we perform chemical peels in light to medium levels of strength to meet our patient's skincare needs and goals.
- Light peels - You can have a light chemical peel during your lunch time and return back to your day. This level of peel will remove the top skin layers (upper layers of the epidermis), giving your face a brighter appearance and softer texture. We typically suggest that you receive a light chemical peel about once a month for continued results.
- Medium-depth peels - This level of chemical peel reaches deeper into your skin, and you'll usually prefer to do this strength of facial rejuvenation treatment over a long weekend. You may also need to prepare yourself for more discomfort during and up to an hour after peel. Medium-depth peels are designed for patients who have significant damage to their skin, including deeper wrinkles and darker pigmentation issues to correct.
Getting the recommendations of a cosmetic professional is the first step in the journey to healthy, smooth skin. Patients with lighter skin make the best candidates for a chemical peel treatment; however, we can assess your skin in an exam in our office. We will also need to ask about your medical background before choosing a chemical peel treatment for best results. Chemical peel candidates both women and men may have noticeable concerns on their skin, including scars, flaky skin, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, fine lines, sun spots, and much more. Based on the tone of your skin, we may recommend varying strengths of chemical peels to match your needs and goals.
"All the staff was very professional."- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Oct 12, 2017
"This review is well overdue, but now you can be certain I am certain of my results! My skin wasn't horrid, but as it turns out, it needed work. I would get the usual lady cycle breakouts (even at 31) and the occasional pimple here and there. It would take 2-3 weeks to clear up. Who has time for that?! And then I was introduced to Felicia. Felicia put me on a ZO regimen in July. It took about a month for my skin texture to change. I did not even know that was a thing! My skin texture was smoother, brighter, and tighter! The compliments were rolling in!Fast forward to 6-7 months in, and if I may be self indulgent, am in love with my face. I always secretly wanted to be able to walk out of the house with no makeup (always sunscreen!) and look fantastic. With Felicia's guidance, I have been able to achieve that goal. My makeup consists of a tube of mascara, as I am confident enough not to hide behind foundation, CC cream, etc. It wasn't an overnight change, there are days where my face is itchy, there have been series of days of constant peeling and redness. However, I stuck with it, Felicia was a constant support, and I am so thankful I did."- R.B. / Yelp / Mar 13, 2018
"One of the most talented plastic surgeons. Dr Hanz is truly a miracle worker. Cosmetic surgery skills are amazing. He recently performed a very difficult hand surgery for my father in law. Amazing results. Highly recommend."- S.L. / Facebook / Feb 22, 2018
"Always a great result - I've received Botox treatments from Dr. Hanz and it always looks natural and I receive many compliments. Very happy with my care... Im contemplating other treatments and I wouldn't go anywhere else. His bedside manner is very pleasant as well.."- C. / RealSelf / Feb 01, 2018
"Breast Implant Removal and Liposuction - The staff at Elevate was amazing from scheduling my consultation down to the actual procedure. I had two separate procedures performed by Dr. Hanz the first one being a breast implant removal and the second one was liposuction. Dr. Hanz and his staff were very helpful in answering all of my questions and concerns. My continued care after the procedures has been substantial as well. I would highly recommend Dr. Hanz and his staff for any of your cosmetic needs."- H. / RealSelf / Jan 30, 2018
During your chemical peel appointment in our office, we will have you lying down in a relaxed position to administer your peel. We will make sure your skin in cleansed before applying the customized solution to your face, neck, or both. We will spread the solution onto your face and let it set for a specific amount of time, which will be discussed in your treatment planning session. Next, we will remove the solution from your face and apply a neutralizing agent to the skin. We then apply a light sunscreen to protect against UV exposure.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Depending on the strength of the peel you receive, you can expect the treated area to itch and peel from a few days to a week. We will discuss ways to care for your skin during your procedure. Please keep in mind that no matter how much your skin itches during the recovery, it is never healthy to peel the skin off. You could cause scarring to your skin.
