11 Jul Deep Chemical Peels as a Facelift Alternative
Chemical peels vary in aggressiveness, from mild to deep. A deep chemical peel provides results that are so incredible that they can be an alternative to a facelift for some clients. At Oasis Eye Face and Skin, oculofacial plastic surgeon Dr. Schiedler only welcomes premium treatments that are both safe and effective into her clinic. The results of a deep chemical peel can take 20 years off of a person’s face by tightening and rejuvenating while removing lines and wrinkles.
Chemical peels are customized to suit the goals and needs of each patient. Aptly named, this procedure uses a combination of chemicals to remove the top layers of skin safely. At the same time, collagen and elastin production are kick-started while fresh, younger-looking skin well below the surface is revealed. The majority of skin damage occurs (and shows) on the top layers of skin. Even though our skin is constantly shedding and rejuvenating, the rate of this process is too slow to reveal the coveted younger-looking skin. However, the right chemical peel can force this revelation to occur. Trusting a top oculofacial surgeon’s clinic with your deep chemical peel is wise because these peels are placed very close to the sensitive eye area, and you want to ensure this area is well-protected.
Bear in mind that a deep chemical peel does require planning and downtime, but is still much safer with a faster recovery period than a surgical procedure like a facelift. On average, a full recovery from a deep chemical peel takes about two weeks. If you are thinking about a deep chemical peel for a special event, be sure to give yourself a little more “healing time.” Everyone heals at a slightly different pace, and you want to make sure you have ample time to recover.
However, once a deep chemical peel has healed, the results are dramatic and instant. Still, your “new” skin is baby-soft and very vulnerable. If you don’t already have a quality sunscreen and skin care regimen, you will want to adopt one to care for and preserve the results of your deep chemical peel. Medical-grade products are the best for anyone who cares about their skin, but especially for those considering a deep chemical peel. Dr. Schiedler and her team will discuss the best skin care and sunscreen options for you during your consultation and appointment.
