Benefits of a chemical peel

Benefits of a chemical peel

While it may come easy to others, some find it difficult to achieve a clear, blemish-free complexion. Whether years of teenage acne, exposure to sun or lack of a regular skincare treatment, there are many factors that could cause wrinkles, discoloration, scars or acne in skin. Improved lifestyle habits, such as following a healthier diet, exercising and practicing a night-and-day skincare regimen can address such concerns, but some people need more help than that. That's where a chemical peel treatment comes into play.

According to Mayo Clinic, a chemical peel is defined as a skin-resurfacing procedure which uses a chemical solution to peel back the damaged top layers of the skin. The result? This layer grows back looking smoother, younger and potentially flawless.

"A chemical peel is a skin-resurfacing procedure."

"Turns out good old chemical peels can actually deliver certain skin benefits—like reversing melasma and breakouts— better than high-tech devices," Doris Day, a clinical associate professor of dermatology at NYU Langone Medical Center told Allure magazine.

A chemical peel may be the answer to your complexion concerns. If you're dealing with acne scarring, skin discoloration or another common flaw in your complexion, consider the following benefits of chemicals peels and why it may be the solution you've been searching for.

Gain flawless skin
Chemical peels offer dramatic improvement in a not-so-satisfying complexion. Remember, this type of therapy isn't only for the face – as the American Society of Plastic Surgeons stated, this minimally invasive procedure can be used to smooth and retexturize the skin on your neck and hands as well. Some of the benefits of undergoing a chemical peel treatment include:

  • Reduced acne and scarring
  • Improved color, tone and texture
  • Stimulated collagen and skin cell growth
  • Eliminated discoloration caused by sun exposure
  • Reduced fine lines and wrinkles
  • Hydrated skin
  • Reduced blotchiness
  • Enhanced youthful glow

Chemical peels are offered at different depths, including light, medium and deep. The higher level you choose, the deeper the chemical peel will work to exfoliate and penetrate beneath the top layer of skin to achieve the greatest results.

Enjoy an option that works with your busy lifestyle
Committing to an invasive surgery isn't as simple as scheduling an appointment and going about your everyday life. Instead, you need to plan to take time off of work to heal and recover after the treatment. With a chemical peel, however, there is no downtime. That means you can go in for an appointment, leave and immediately continue your daily tasks and activities. While there are specific rules and recommendations for seeking the best results – such as staying out of the sun for a certain period of time – you are encouraged to continue working or follow with your regular agenda.

It's a cost-effective choice
As compared to some of the other options for reconstructing your skin, chemical peels are one of the more cost-effective choices. Laser skin resurfacing treatments, for example, range between $1,000 to $2,000, according to statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. On the other hand, the basic cost of chemical peel is closer to $700. While prices are based on the expertise and qualification of the professional performing the treatment, these are the averages to expect. Despite such a broad range, chemical peels have known to be just as effective as laser resurfacing treatments. For the greatest results, you can go back for an additional chemical peel treatment.

I just had my one year follow up appointment with Dr. Summers for my rhinoplasty. I couldn’t be happier with my results! My rhinoplasty was customized to suit my face and does not look “cookie cutter”. My nose looks very natural and suits my face significantly better did than the pre-op version. Dr. Summers is extremely talented and has a great eye for detail. He and his support staff were extremely professional and courteous through the entire process. The surgical facility is state-of-the-art, and extremely well maintained. Overall, I had a fantastic experience with Dr. Summers and would recommend him to anyone seeking rhinoplasty.

I had been interested in getting a breast augmentation for over 15 years but was worried about having elective surgery as well as the safety of implants. After I discovered a co-worker had implants and told me about Dr. Summers I took it as a sign. Dr. Summers and his staff were very patient and informative with all the questions and concerns I had. Never once did I feel they dismissed my concerns nor made me feel I was wasting their time with my nervousness. I determined that if I was going to undergo surgery that I would attempt laser liposuction on some stubborn areas on my abs, hips, and thighs. Dr. Summers was very professional and competent but what stood out for me was that he talked to me about diet and lifestyle changes that would be necessary to get the complete results I wanted. I was extremely pleased with the results of my augmentation and feel like the lipo gave me the kick start I needed to get me on the path to making those lifestyle changes. I can easily say I’m now in the best shape of my life! Thank you Dr. Summers!

Because of a terrible car crash in 1995, I have been unable to breathe correctly and I have not looked like myself for a long time. My breathing became unbearable and then I was so lucky to have found Dr. Summers. My rhinoplasty surgery has changed me so much. My breathing is so much better now and I finally have a bridge on my nose again. I used to think my lungs were not working properly. It is so amazing how much better I can breathe now. I am very happy about my nose, too. I have felt very ugly inside but never let it get me down or change me but now it feels good to look like my old self again. It’s a blessing that I met Dr. Summers and I am so very grateful that I was so lucky to have him as my surgeon. I found out that all the research I did on Dr. Summers is better than I expected…I found that he was the best around, but in my eyes’, he is the best ALL AROUND! Thank you! You have changed my life…

I can’t believe how incredible my skin looks after Dr. Summers did laser resurfacing for me. Love, love, love it!

Everything about this experience exceeded my expectations and none of my fears about having cosmetic surgery came true. The results were completely natural looking–as though the clock had been set back many years and while the before and after results were substantial, the overall effect was just right and nobody even asked whether I had any “work” performed on my face. I am most happy about the fact that the double chin, which I’d had for my entire life, is now gone and I have an actual jaw line.

I am 5’6″ tall with long blond, curly hair. I work for a real estate company in Maryland as a Lease Administrator. Prior to that, I worked for a Minnesota Senator on Capitol Hill. Even though I work out at the gym frequently, I had a few problem areas, which would not go away. Thanks to Dr. Summers’ cosmetic surgery team at the Maryland Plastic Surgery Center, I’ve had liposuction on my outer thighs, hips and stomach. Now my saddlebags are gone and I was able to buy a pair of hip hugger jeans! I’ll be 45 next month and will almost wear a size 6. I’m planning to return to have my inner thighs done very soon.

I wanted to take a moment to thank you for your kindness, support and relaxed demeanor over the past several months. You made me feel at ease about my surgery. In the operating room I remember you holding my hand as I was “put to sleep”. As you said, combined surgeries add time, this can create more nausea, prolonged recovery and higher risk of infection. In 6 hours, you performed a breast reduction, abdominoplasty, and liposuction. My recovery although difficult as you said, was uneventful. Six months later, I am so happy, so trusting in you with what I have seen, that I am now considering a lower body lift.

I was a size six and wanted to be at least a size four. After my laser liposuction procedure I am down to a size two! I am very happy with the results!
