Chemical Peels in Miami and Boca Raton, FL
A chemical peel, when properly done, can refresh your skin and your appearance, reducing the visibility of age spots and other imperfections on the face. Dr. Paul N. Afrooz, fellowship-trained cosmetic surgeon, offers chemical peels and more to residents of Miami, Boca Raton, Deerfield Beach, Delray Beach, Fort Lauderdale, and the surrounding areas of South Florida.
What is a Chemical Peel?
A chemical peel is a safe, facial rejuvenation technique that causes the outermost layer of skin to dry and peel off, revealing the new, healthy layer underneath. Dr. Paul N. Afrooz exclusively performs TCA chemical peels because they are non-toxic and effective. Patients often choose to have a chemical peel to reduce the appearance of age spots, acne, melasma, or to improve the texture of the skin and reduce wrinkles. This procedure can be performed multiple times in a row to penetrate deeper into the skin.
What Can I Expect from a Chemical Peel Procedure?
Before a chemical peel, your skin will be gently, yet thoroughly cleansed, to ensure that the treatment affects all of the skin evenly. Next, the TCA peel solution is applied to the skin. Some patients may feel heat or a warming sensation during this process, but it is generally comfortable overall. After this, your procedure is complete.
How is Recovery from a Chemical Peel?
After a chemical peel, the skin will dry and peel. This is expected, and is necessary in order to deliver rejuvenating results. The skin will peel for as long as a week, and may appear slightly red during this time. It is important to avoid sun exposure after treatment, because the freshly revealed skin will be very sensitive to light. Your skin should begin to look normal and refreshed after about a week, but patients should continue limiting sun exposure for at least a month or longer.
