Board-certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Frank L. Stile, offers chemical peels at his sprawling practice, Stile Aesthetics. Dr. Stile understands that your skin is constantly being exposed to environmental elements such as UV rays, dust, and air pollution. These elements can cause damage to the skin and lead to sunspots, hyperpigmentation, and more. Receiving a chemical peel at Stile Aesthetics in Las Vegas, NV, can bring great improvement to the appearance of your skin. Chemical peels range from light, medium, and deep to accommodate a wide variety of skin conditions. This facial peel is especially helpful in reducing the appearance of wrinkles, light acne scarring, and improving skin texture. It is also safe and effective to use on the face, neck, and hands.
Before any chemical peel, the skin will be assessed to determine the exact skin concerns and the most appropriate type of peel. The skin will be thoroughly cleaned and prepped prior to the peel. We offer light, medium, and deep facial peels.
The superficial/light chemical peel is the mildest form of peels that works by removing the outermost layer of skin. The peel is usually a diluted version of glycolic acid that is left on the skin for a few minutes. After the peel, the skin will be slightly red, but there will be no downtime. The patient’s skin may peel slightly for 3 – 5 days and a series of treatments are usually required for optimal results.
A medium depth peel removes several layers of skin to treat deeper skin problems. These peels are good for moderate to severe lines and wrinkles, as well as moderate scars and other skin problems. TCA, or Trichloroacetic Acid, is applied in a controlled manner for a specific length of time. After a certain point, the acid will be neutralized to stop its effects. The recovery period is about 10 days for this peel and the results will be more dramatic than a light peel.
A deep peel produces the most dramatic results, so it is reserved for more serious skin conditions. Since it’s an invasive procedure, local anesthesia or numbing cream may be used. Phenol acid is used for severe lines and wrinkles, various facial irregularities, and deep acne scars. It takes a patient about 14 days to recover since the peel is similar to second-degree burns. Most patients will only need one peel to reach their aesthetic goals.

The length of treatment depends on the type of peel administered.
Problematic skin problems can be peeled away with a light, medium, or deep chemical peel. The peels are great at clearing up a number of skin issues, such as fine lines and wrinkles or tone and texture issues, to leave you with better, clearer, more rejuvenated skin.
In most cases, there is only downtime associated with medium or deep peels. Patients can typically resume their daily activities immediately.
