Peels are popular skin treatments that are done to improve the appearance and youthfulness of the complexion. There is a selection of different peels available today, often able to treat many skin issues, including melasma, acne and acne scarring, signs of aging, sun damage, sagging skin, and wrinkles. We offer a range of different peels, including:
Our most popular peel is called the “Vampire Peel” combining the technology of laser and using your own blood to promote healing and prolonged collagen stimulation. Incorporating PRP, or platelet rich plasma, into the peel helps to stimulate collagen production for effective results.
During this peel, PRP will be performed, drawing your blood and placing it in a centrifuge. This machine will separate the plasma from the platelets. The platelets are then applied to the skin for a nourishing effect.
Chemical peels can range from relatively mild to much more aggressive. They are designed to cover a wide variety of skin conditions with the goal of improving the overall skin tone, elasticity, and appearance. The specific chemical peel that is chosen is determined by numerous factors including the goals of the patient, the individual’s skin type, and the availability of recovery time.
During a chemical peel, a customized chemical solution is applied to the skin. This peel will then remove the outermost layer of damaged skin to reveal the healthier, smoother skin underneath.
Following your peel, you may experience redness, peeling, and irritation, which should resolve as the skin heals. Depending on the aggressiveness of the peel, some downtime may be required. At the Storch Plastic Surgery Facility, we provide an in-house aesthetician for our patients’ skin care needs.
