Why Chemical Peels?

It’s important to have a trained physician with experience in chemical peel procedures to administer your treatment. Chemical peels are generally performed at your plastic surgeon’s office or at an outpatient surgical center. Depending on the type of peel and the amount of skin being treated, the procedure may take anywhere from 10 minutes for an AHA peel or two hours for a full-face phenol peel.

As the chemical takes its effect, your new layer of skin will be very sensitive. Note that it’s important to keep your skin safe from the sun by using the appropriate level of sunblock after the procedure.

With an AHA peel, you will be able to return to work and regular activities straight away. With a TCA peel, it will take about a week to ten days to return to work and activities. A phenol peel may require up to two weeks of recovery before returning to work. Ask your plastic surgeon about camouflage makeup tips to employ while your skin heals.

Chemical peels can offer an improved skin texture and a more youthful and healthy appearance, though chemical peels do have their limitations.

COVID-19 Update 03/15/2022

This is a new day, with new safety protocols. Our goal is to keep everyone safe and respect the continued concerns COVID-19 may present.

The state of Maryland is now fortunately downgraded to Yellow Status. COVID stress on the medical system has lessened and most areas in the state no longer mandate masks.

Currently in our office we are maintaining sterile surfaces and compulsive cleaning protocols – as always. We are requesting information about vaccination status, to particularly better help us prepare for patients interested in surgical procedures.

We are not mandating masks. We do respect our patients’ wishes and will wear a mask when requested to do so. We want our patients to be absolutely comfortable. All of our staff are vaccinated.

This is certainly an evolving issue and we will continue to pivot as COVID statistics change – hopefully for the better! Thank you!
