Chemical Peels may be effective to improve the appearance sun damage discolorations, fine lines, mild scarring, melasma, and dull textured skin. However sags, or bulges and deeper wrinkles do not respond to this procedure. These conditions require other cosmetic procedures that we offer here in our office such as: laser resurfacing, smart lift, brow lift, eyelid lift, face lift or soft tissue fillers.
Most often, fair-skinned and light-haired patients have ideal results from a chemical peel. Darker-skinned patients may also have excellent results. After a consultation with Utah Oral & Facial Surgeons you will be able to decide it this is the best treatment for you.
The skin is thoroughly cleaned and the hair and eyes are protected while a solution is applied to skin. The solution actually causes a “controlled burn” which allows fresh, new skin to blossom.
It takes about a week to heal. Afterwards, to maintain your new, fresh skin, always wear broad spectrum sunscreen.
With the advanced technology of the CO2 Laser, Utah Oral & Facial Surgeons who is a member of the American Society of Laser Medicine and Surgery, precisely removes damaged skin, layer by layer with a high energy beam of light. Wrinkles and defects are vaporized, revealing fresh, youthful skin!
Laser Skin Resurfacing is performed in our surgical suite under general anesthesia.
Makeup can be applied within four to ten days depending on your skin’s response to the treatment. Usually complete healing requires two to six weeks.
