Chemical Peels

Exfoliate with This Reliable Treatment at the Los Angeles Area's Cosmetic Surgery Institute

Some of the most popular and commonly performed skin rejuvenation treatments available at Cosmetic Surgery Institute are chemical peels. Los Angeles-area women and men who want to remove their dull, worn out, and damaged skin cells-along with the blemishes they carry-can choose from a variety of peel options, which range in strength and depth.

Since every patient is different and has unique skin care needs, an experienced esthetician will work with every individual to determine which chemical peel is most ideal for generating beautiful results. Peels can address scars (including marks from acne), spots, fine lines and wrinkles, redness and hyperpigmentation, sun damage, and some laxity.

What to Expect from a Chemical Peel

Though the various chemical peels differ in terms of strength, they all work in the same general way: An exfoliating solution is applied directly to the skin and left on for a pre-determined amount of time. While you relax, the solution penetrates below the surface and begins a process that will ultimately cause the layer or layers above to peel away. The active ingredients can also stimulate collagen production, which results in more long-term benefits.

Cosmetic Surgery Institute offers mild and moderate peels, each with a unique focus and specific qualities.

Mild chemical peels are for patient who want to improve their general skin texture and tone. Considered to be "superficial" chemical peels (some people even call them "lunchtime peels"), these make use of a mild acid, such as alpha-hydroxy. Exfoliation is limited to the outermost layer of skin, which makes for a visible rejuvenation, but minimal healing after. Expect a few days of slightly red and flaking skin.

Moderate chemical peels use a glycolic or trichloroacetic acid and sink deeper into the skin. This treatment is more ideal for targeting specific lesions and lines, as opposed to general rejuvenation. Because it is a more intense peel, healing can last for a week, with the most significant side effects—redness, slight swelling, and peeling—appearing in the first 48 hours.

Our Approach to Chemical Peels

I'm into 1 year after having my saline breast augmentation and I can't be happier. The results are exactly what I wanted; they look and feel super natural. The staffs are helpful in making you feel comfortable and answering any questions you may have. The doctor is very pleasant and informative. I would highly recommend him to any one of my friends and/or family!

The lady at the front was wonderful. They were able to break down all the post op instructions for my recovery time and did a really good job. So far everything looks really good and scarring was minimal to none.
