Facial Peels

While laser skin resurfacing is the option most used today for facial imperfections treated for years almost exclusively by chemical peels and dermabrasion, these techniques continue to have their places in the plastic surgeons practice.

Without making a single incision, surgeons can erase wrinkles, acne scars and sun spots. Depending on the intensity of the peel and the chemicals used, the results can be quite dramatic, or they may be so subtle that the patient's face simply looks cleaner, smoother and refreshed. While chemical peels do not involve the use of a scalpel, it is crucial that the physician, or in the case of the lightest peels, the esthetician, be experienced and knowledgeable about how the patient's skin will react to the chemical solution.

There are three basic strengths of peels. The phenol peel is the deepest, or strongest. While CO2 laser skin resurfacing as all but replaced the need for phenol peel, it still can help men and women with light skin and deep lines. The phenol peel requires a longer recovery period--about a week to ten days indoors--and costs more than the other peels. But it offers patients the most dramatic results and the benefits of the peel are permanent. The trichloracetic acid, or TCA, peel is second in intensity to the phenol. It, too, can offer dramatic results; however, patients often return to work a day or two after the peel. Glycolic acid peels, those commonly offered in salons and done by licensed skin-care specialists, are the weakest. These peels can be great fixer-uppers for the those whose skin imperfections are mild. They are affordable, and when administered by an experienced doctor or aesthetician, they are safe.

Combination cosmetic solutions

Peels smooth the skin--they will not eliminate excess or sagging skin. However, peels can be performed along with other procedures, such as a face lift, to tighten the skin. The patient's commitment to skin care, using natural skin care products, becomes very important in keeping the patient's skin looking young. Dr. Korpeck's in-office, full-time aesthetician offers one-on-one consultations and a full line of skin care and nutritional products, individually tailored to compliment each person's skin type.
