Chemical face peels are designed to improve texture, reduce wrinkles and rejuvenate your facial skin. Nature’s elements (sun, wind, dirt, dust, smoke, pollutants), genetics and passage of time tend to dim the youthful glow in your face. Surgical procedures, namely facelift and blepharoplasty, are able to correct facial sagging and jowls, but do not reduce wrinkles or change the general appearance of your skin. Chemical peels administered by plastic surgeon in Dallas, Dr. Rai at the Cosmetic Surgical Center, however, do serve this purpose in facial rejuvenation.
Dr. Rai’s Cosmetic Surgical Center in Dallas, offers the following chemical peels:
These are mild peels, but much deeper than the peels available at spas and non-medical settings. Generally, a series of three to six peels are required at intervals of three to four weeks. No anesthesia is required. In each session, peel solution is applied to your face. This removes outer layers of unhealthy skin. You may experience some burning and stinging, but this soon dissipates. After the outer skin layer peels, we replace it with new, more youthful skin. TCA peel makes your skin look fresher. It gets rid of any minor blemishes and age spots you may have. However, it has a minimal effect on deep wrinkles.
PHENOL-CROTON OIL PEEL
This is much deeper peel. Phenol peels the top layers of your skin. Croton Oil causes dermal injury and realigns the elastic fibers and collagen in the deeper layers of your skin. As healing takes place, new collagen forms in the deep dermal layers of your skin. Your skin is regenerated by fresh epithelium.A Phenol-Croton oil peel is uncomfortable enough to require anesthesia. Healing takes up to two weeks. Your skin appears red for six to twelve weeks after the peel during which you apply camouflage make up to cover the red areas. However, results are dramatic. Phenol- Croton oil peel is abele to considerably diminish crows feet, wrinkles around your forehead and the lines around your mouth. It can also wash away skin damage caused by sun exposure. However, it also damages the pigment bearing cells of your skin, resulting in skin whitening. Your skin may not tan after this peel, so a Phenol-Croton oil peel is only suitable if you have a fair-skinned complexion.
