Chemical Peels & Dermaplaning
Chemical peels and dermaplaning are tried-and-true ways to address virtually any skin issue.
Completely customized to your anatomy, lifestyle and specific skin issues, these treatments offer an incredible way to erase imperfections and restore your glowing complexion.
What's involved in
Chemical peels involve placing an acid solution on your face to remove the damaged and imperfect outer layers of skin. These treatments come in various depths and strengths, and are designed to unveil a brand new layer of skin that is smoother and more beautiful than ever before.
Performed in the comfort of Dr. Sukkar’s Houston office, our chemical peels will be administered along with an anesthetic to ensure your comfort and safety. We will then apply the chosen chemical solution that has been customized to safely treat your unique skin issues. Once the treatment is complete, we will remove the solution, apply a soothing ointment and send you home to begin the healing process.
The length of your treatment, along with your aftercare instructions and recovery period, will depend on the type of chemical peel being performed. During your initial consultation at The Clinic for Plastic Surgery, Dr. Sukkar will carefully examine your skin and help you determine which of the following chemical peels will best revitalize and refresh your facial appearance.
Light Chemical Peel
Our light chemical peels are the easiest to tolerate. Also known as glycolic or AHA peels, this option gently removes the top layer of your skin to encourage your body to rejuvenate itself from the inside out. In this way, it improves the appearance of fine lines, acne, dry skin and pigmentation issues. The actual treatment is very comfortable, and you won’t experience much skin redness or irritation afterwards. In general, you’ll be able to resume your normal daily routine immediately after your appointment, however you’ll likely require multiple sessions to achieve optimal results.
Medium Chemical Peel
Also known as TCA (trichloroacetic acid) peels, medium chemical peels offer a terrific way to treat acne scars, uneven texture, pigmentation issues and fine lines. The treatment can be completed in just 15 minutes, and it will produce visible and long-lasting results. Within just one week, your dull outer layer of skin will slough off, and your new and glowing complexion will be revealed.
Deep Chemical Peel
Also known as a phenol peel, deep chemical peels are very aggressive treatments. They are designed to penetrate the deepest layers of the skin to reverse severe imperfections, like very sun-damaged skin, deep wrinkles and acne scars. These peels are so powerful that they produce the most dramatic results in just one treatment – however they are associated with a substantial recovery period. You’ll need to rest at home for at least one week, as the top layer of your skin flakes off to reveal a brand new layer of undamaged pink skin underneath.
A non-invasive rejuvenation treatment, dermaplaning involves exfoliating your skin to achieve a smoother complexion. It’s often performed in conjunction with chemical peels to achieve the best possible cosmetic outcome.
To perform this procedure, Dr. Sukkar will first apply local anesthesia to ensure your comfort. He will then pull your skin taut, while gently moving a surgical blade over your face to eliminate any dead skin cells, allowing your bright and healthy complexion to shine through. Once the procedure is complete, you will not experience any downtime, and you’ll be free to resume your normal daily routine immediately.
If you’re ready to learn more about non-invasive rejuvenation, we invite you to schedule a consultation at The Clinic for Plastic Surgery today. During your private meeting in our Houston office, we will carefully assess the cosmetic imperfections you’d most like to address, before creating a custom treatment plan designed to sculpt the exquisite appearance you deserve.
