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.

Moving forward Schedule a Consultation

Chemical peels can offer an improved skin texture and a more youthful and healthy appearance, though chemical peels do have their limitations. Talking to your plastic surgeon is the best way to determine if a chemical peel may be right for you. Please contact our office today to set up your confidential consultation with Dr. Shermak.

View Update Virtual Consultation

We are officially open, thanks to Governor Hogan!

We welcome new patients and are looking forward to performing elective surgical procedures, starting the week of May 11.

This is a new day, with new safety protocols. Our goal is to keep everyone safe and respect the continued risk COVID-19 presents. For this reason, we will be instituting the following protocols:

  • We will have Sandy stationed at our entryway with sterilizer and a COVID-19 survey for our new patients to fill out. Sandy will also check your temperature and collect your paperwork at the door – our medical intake form can be filled out prior to your coming to the office, or you can fill it out after you arrive.
  • Please bring a mask for any in-office visits. If you are coming for surgery, please bring a paper mask if you have one. For any other visits, cloth masks or paper masks are fine.
  • We need any patient waiting to be seen to wait in your car until we can safely accommodate you in an exam room. We need to respect social distancing and are spacing our patients out to assure safety.
  • We can only allow the patient to come in to the office for examination. Friends or family will need to wait outside the office.
  • For those assisting our postoperative patients on the day of surgery: we ask that you kindly wait in your car and we will call you in to discuss postoperative instructions.
  • I am continuing to schedule Virtual Consultations which is exciting and new! Check out my Resources section or header at drshermak.com to get started!

I look forward to seeing you soon!

 

As of July 1st, the staff members at The Plastic Surgery Center of Maryland will no longer routinely be wearing masks following the state guidelines per Governor Hogan.

All of our staff members are vaccinated.

If any patient would prefer that the medical staff member caring for them wear a mask, please let us know and we will gladly do so.

We treat patients with compormised immune systems and we need to be respectful of their needs.

We are asking patients who are not fully vaccinated to please wear masks while in our office so that we may continue to safely accomodate our patients with weakened immune systems.

Thank you!
