Laser/Chemical Peels

Laser or chemical peels are designed to treat fine lines and wrinkles of the face, as well as small discolorations. Laser peels are more powerful than chemical peels, and give a deeper treatment with longer lasting results. For this reason, laser peels also have a longer recovery time (2-3 weeks) than chemical peels (1-2 weeks). Peels can be completed across the entire face and neck, or just around the eyes. These treatments give a more refreshed, youthful appearance to the treatment area.

The skin in the treated area will slough in the first week, equivalent to a bad sunburn. The newly regenerated skin should be protected from UV light for a minimum of 3-6 months. Peels are completed in an outpatient setting under mild to moderate sedation, and are often performed in conjunction with other eyelid procedures.
