Skin Rejuvenation and Resurfacing (Chemical Peel)

What is Skin Rejuvenation and Resurfacing (Chemical Peel)?

What is Skin Rejuvenation and Resurfacing (Chemical Peel)?

Skin rejuvenation is a treatment to resurface your skin, or to improve the texture, clarity and overall appearance of your skin.

Conditions that can be treated include:

  • Static wrinkles: These wrinkles are visible at all times and do not change in appearance with facial movements.
  • Dynamic wrinkles: These are expression lines that may appear as folds when the skin is not moving, and deepen with facial movements or expressions.
  • Pigmentation: Freckles, sun spots, melasma, or other darkened patches of skin result mainly from sun exposure.
  • Scars: As the result of acne or injury to the skin, scars may be rolling (a wavy appearance to the skin), pitted, discolored, or have raised borders.
  • Vascular conditions: Blood vessels visible on the surface of the skin, vascular lesions that appear as tiny blood filled blisters or even a constant flush of facial redness.
  • Loss of skin tone: Weakening of the supportive skin structure (collagen and elastin fibers) that results in a loss of skin firmness, or the development of cellulite.

How is Skin Rejuvenation and Resurfacing done at Lufkin Plastic Surgery?

How is Skin Rejuvenation and Resurfacing done at Lufkin Plastic Surgery?

Dr. Strinden prefers to use specially formulated chemical peels to treat pigmentation disorders such as sun and age spots and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles of the entire face, or those that develop in specific regions of the face, such as the upper lip and around the eyes. At the present time Dr. Strinden does not use laser or fractional resurfacing.

The depth of peel will determine the amount of post treatment pinkness and the duration until complete recovery.
