A Simple Procedure with Organic Results

At Dr. Anil Shah Facial Plastic Surgery, we understand the importance of skin renewal, which is why we are pleased to offer our signature chemical peel treatments. These treatments involve the application of a topical acid that helps to restore and renew the surface of your skin by shedding a few layers and exposing younger layers beneath, resulting in skin that looks more youthful, more vibrant, and tighter. Chemical peels are effective treatments for addressing rough skin, age spots, sun-damaged skin, uneven pigmentation, and acne scars. While certain chemical peels are designed explicitly for the face, others can be performed on other body areas, such as the chest, neck, arms, hands, and legs. We offer light, medium, and deep chemical peels that penetrate at different levels to cater to each customer's unique needs and desired results. As always, recovery time varies depending on the strength of the peel, but most patients can expect to spend less than a week recovering.

Start Your Journey with a Consultation

We always encourage clients to begin their journey by consulting with Dr. Shah at our Chicago office. During this session, he will meet with you to discuss your goals and determine whether a chemical peel is the proper treatment for you. He will also take the time to answer any questions about the procedure, including what to expect during and after the treatment.

At Dr. Anil Shah Facial Plastic Surgery, we prioritize patient education and empowerment so you can make an informed decision about your treatment options. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and take the first step toward achieving your aesthetic goals with a chemical peel.

Your Chemical Peel Procedure

Our chemical peel treatment involves the topical application of a chemical solution to the skin, with varying levels of intensity and comfort depending on the strength of the peel. Even the most intense chemical peels only cause a mild warm or tingling sensation in the skin. The solution will be left on the skin for a predetermined amount of time, based on the strength of the peel and your treatment goals. Once the time has passed, we’ll remove the chemical peel and clean your skin. Typically, a chemical peel treatment lasts less than one hour. Our team is dedicated to providing you with a comfortable and safe experience, and we will work with you to ensure that your chemical peel treatment is tailored to your unique needs and desired results.

Recovery and Results

The recovery period after a chemical peel treatment varies depending on the strength of the peel. Deeper peels provide more intense results but also require a longer recovery time. It is common for patients to experience flaking or peeling skin for a week or two after the treatment, which is essential for the healing process. During this time, the skin may be red or sensitive, so it is necessary to avoid excessive sun exposure and other irritants that may damage the skin.

As the skin heals, the results of the chemical peel treatment become visible in the weeks following the treatment. Removing the outermost layer of skin reveals beautiful, soft, and radiant skin underneath. Multiple treatment sessions may be necessary to achieve optimal results for specific cosmetic concerns, and many patients choose to receive regular treatments to maintain their results for as long as possible.
