Melt Away Blemishes

Scars, wrinkles, blemishes, sun damage, uneven pigmentation, or any other imperfections on your skin will melt away with this highly effective treatment. As the topical chemical solution is applied to your face, the damaged outer dermal layer is removed, revealing the radiant, youthful underlayer. At MG Plastic Surgery, we help men and women in Scottsdale, AZ, achieve the even skin tone and soft texture that they desire.

How Do Chemical Peels Work?

A chemical peel comprises a safe, medical-grade solution containing ingredients such as lactic, salicylic, hydroxy, retinol, trichloroacetic, and glycolic acid. The solution is applied to clean skin in multiple layers. The type of chemical peel chosen depends on your skin type and desired results. 

The peel chemically exfoliates the skin in a precise and completely controlled manner, removing the damaged layer of cells. After several minutes, our skincare specialist will wash the chemicals off your skin. The dead cells peel off gradually over the next week, revealing a new, undamaged layer of skin.

Types of Chemical Peels

Light Peel

A light chemical peel involves a series of treatments with subtle improvements happening over time. Best for acne, fine lines, uneven pigmentation, or dry sun-damaged skin, the outer skin layer is removed to reveal a healthy glow. Recovery from a light peel is minimal – a few hours or days with minimal downtime.

Medium Peel

A medium-strength chemical peel removes the skin down to the upper part of the middle dermal layer to give the skin a fresh, smooth appearance. This treatment is ideal for moderate skin discoloring, acne scarring, age spots, or slightly deeper wrinkles. A longer recovery time may be required, with at least a week of healing and some downtime.

Deep Peel

With the ability to penetrate the lower part of the middle layer of skin, a deep chemical peel can produce dramatic results. Most useful for extensive sun damage, blotchy skin, acne scars, actinic keratosis, and moderate wrinkles and lines, this peel requires around eight weeks of pretreatment. A one-and-done procedure, the deep peel requires significantly more downtime.

Does it hurt?

Are there any risks of complications?

Does it hurt?

During the application process, you may experience a stinging or burning sensation, which tends to be so brief that many patients do not need sedation. For deep peels, sedation is typically used to increase patient comfort.

When will I see the results?

The healing time will vary based on the depth of the peel and the number of treatments required to achieve your desired aesthetic outcome. Wearing sunscreen and keeping your skin moisturized will prevent scarring and keep your skin hydrated for the most radiant results.

Are there any risks of complications?

Because the new skin is very fragile and tender, it will be more susceptible to potential complications like scabbing, redness, inflammation, and more. It is vital to follow your post-treatment instructions to prevent any complications.

Am I a Good Candidate?

With distinct formulas available to treat any shade of skin – whether you have a darker or lighter tone – your skincare expert at MG Plastic Surgery will make sure to choose the right peel to restore your skin’s youthful glow. While the procedure is safe, your treatment may require some adjustments if any of these considerations apply to you:

  • If you actively smoke
  • If you used Accutane to treat acne in the last year
  • If you currently take birth control
