Peels and Resurfacing Considerations

Peels and resurfacing can treat many skin conditions such as wrinkles, fine lines, acne, scars, rough texture, uneven pigment, and sun damage. These minimally invasive procedures are often combined with or performed to enhance the results of facial plastic surgery procedures such as brow lift, eyelid surgery, and face lift in Chicago. Or, they may be combined with other non-surgical treatments such as BOTOX® Cosmetic or injectable fillers.

The Procedure

  • Chemical peel: There are many different types of peels, each accomplishing something different. Dr. Jejurikar offers the Obagi® Blue Peel, a tricholoracetic acid (TCA) peel with a special blue base that allows him to control the depth of the peel. The in-office procedure takes about an hour. There may be a mild, momentary burning sensation when the peel is first applied. More than one treatment may be necessary to achieve the desired results.
     
  • Microdermabrasion: In suburban Chicago, microdermabrasion uses very fine crystals that are sprayed (painlessly) across the face with gentle suction to remove the dead skin cells that are being exfoliated. There may be some slight redness immediately after the procedure. A series of treatments is usually required to achieve the desired results.
     
  • Laser skin rejuvenation: Treatment with the Sciton Contour Tunable Resurfacing Laser can be customized to achieve each patient's desired results. This is a dual mode Erbium:YAG laser that incorporates the pinnacle of resurfacing laser technology. Treatment usually causes minimal redness or discomfort. Conditions that can be effectively treated include mild to deep wrinkles, acne scars, post-traumatic scars, post-surgical scars, actinic keratosis, pigmented lesions, and lax skin in all areas of the face. There will be redness and discomfort after the procedure, but these can be controlled with medication and will fade over time.

Recovery and Results

One of the benefits of non-surgical peels and resurfacing is that minimal downtime is required. What this means for patients is that, often, they can have their treatment in the office and go back to work the next day. Another benefit is that results are usually visible quickly, so people can show off their new look right away.
