Am I a Good Candidate?
Your type of skin does determine which chemical peels would best treat your concerns, so a comprehensive evaluation with Dr. Stein is the best place to start.
Procedure, Recovery, and Results
Dr. Stein performs all the chemical peels at Stein Plastic Surgery to ensure his patients receive the very best in care. Deeper phenol peels are performed on an outpatient basis at our surgical center under heavy sedation.
Patients who choose light to medium peels can expect a 4-7 days of recovery and social downtime that includes mild to moderate flaking and redness. Your most optimal results will peak after a couple of weeks.
Medium peels will have a bit more extensive peeling and redness, and your skin may be tender and mildly swollen. You’ll need 7-10 days of pampering your skin and social downtime, and your skin’s glow will kick in 2-3 weeks after your peel.
Patients going for the deep phenol peel will require 1-2 full weeks of recovery while experiencing significant peeling and redness. It will take up to 2 months for results to shine, but when they do, you’ll be amazed by the radiance and beauty of your skin.
Dr. Stein may also combine a chemical peel with laser resurfacing, and some of our patients add a chemical peel to their facelift or brow lift.
Maximum results so your skin reflects the real you, and not the number of candles on your cake.
