Chemical Peels Las Vegas

Why Consider a Chemical Peel?

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 can be light, medium, or deep to accommodate a wide variety of skin conditions. This facial peel is especially helpful in reducing the appearance of wrinkles and acne scarring and improving skin texture. It is also safe and effective to use on the face, neck, and hands.

Learn More About Chemical Peels

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.

Superficial/Light Peels

The superficial/light chemical peel is the mildest form of peel 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 to achieve optimal results.

Medium Depth Peels

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 for this peel is about ten days, and the results will be more dramatic than those of a light peel.

Deep 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 best candidates for facial peels:

  • Are concerned about their skin tone or complexion.
  • Have fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, or uneven texture.
  • Desire long-term results.
  • Desire fresher, healthier skin.

The length of treatment depends on the type of peel administered. A light chemical peel is typically an easy “lunch break procedure,” while a deeper chemical peel may take longer.

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. Patients may see optimal results within a few days or a few weeks, depending on the depth of their peel.

In most cases, there is only downtime associated with medium or deep peels. Patients can typically resume their daily activities immediately after a light peel. For deeper peels, recovery time may be necessary, and we will provide aftercare instructions.
