42 Year Old Cellulite Finally Gone! Fort Lauderdale, FL

Though this is a new procedure, Dr. Elias was very informative about the entire procedure form start to finish. He was kind and gentle with the procedure and kept me comfortable for the whole treatment. I like how after he circled the dimples he was going to treat, he printed a picture for me to confirm these were the spots I wanted treated and that nothing was missed. It also allowed him to explain why some of the spots I wanted treated werent able to be treated by Cellfina, but I am excited to try Ulthera for my remaining wavy cellulite as he is confident that will work and I have complete confidence in him.

Chemical Peels Q&A

What are Chemical Peels?

Chemical peels are used to improve the appearance of the skin. This type of treatment uses a chemical solution that is applied to the skin, which causes it to blister up. Eventually, this blistering peels off to reveal smoother and less wrinkled skin than the old skin. Chemical peels can be done on the face, neck or hands. They are used to:

 

  • Treat certain types of acne
  • Treat certain types of acne
  • Improve the look and feel of skin
  • Improve the appearance of mild scars
  • Reduce fine lines under the eyes and around the mouth
  • Treat wrinkles caused by sun damage and aging
  • Reduce age spots, freckles and dark patches

How are Chemical Peels performed?

Chemical peels should be performed by a qualified doctor in an office or in a surgery center, though it is an outpatient procedure, which means no overnight stay is required. First, the skin is cleaned thoroughly; then one or more chemical solutions will be applied. These solutions include glycolic acid, trichloroacetic acid, salicylic acid, lactic acid or carbolic acid. During the chemical peel, there can be a slight burning or stinging that occurs but should subside after 5 to 10 minutes. The skin will slough off, revealing younger-looking skin underneath. Peeling usually involves redness, followed by scaling that ends within three to seven days. Mild peels may be repeated at one- to four-week intervals until you get the look you’re after.

What should I expect after the chemical peel?

Depending upon the type of chemical peel, a reaction similar to sunburn occurs following the procedure. You may require bandages for several days on the portion of the skin that was treated. After treatment, your skin will be fragile, and you’ll need to avoid the sun for several months. Peels may be repeated in 6 to 12 months, if necessary.
