About Chemical Peels
Offering only the best in chemical peel treatments, Robert Schwartz Plastic Surgery provides patients with numerous options for a medical-grade facial treatment with chemical solutions (such as glycolic, salicylic, lactic, and trichloroacetic acids) that give you healthier, more radiant facial skin. At our Dallas, TX office, plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Schwartz offers chemical peel treatments that help to remove skin irregularities such as fine lines, wrinkles, scars, dry patches, hyperpigmentation issues, and more. Chemical peels eliminate damaged, dead skin cells by using a specific treatment on your skin, which causes the oldest layer to peel off. As your skin heals and begins to rejuvenate and repair itself, you will notice a clearer, smoother complexion. A chemical peel treatment is a noninvasive procedure to make your skin luminous and may be appropriate for the face and neck.
Variations of Chemical Peels
At our Dallas, TX office, we offer chemical peels in a few strengths (light, medium, and deep) to accommodate our patients' skincare concerns and goals.
Light peels: You can have a light chemical peel on a lunch hour and go right back to your day. This type of peel will remove the top layer of your skin (the epidermis), giving your facial features a brighter appearance and softer texture. We typically suggest that you schedule a light peel at least once a month for the best glowing results.
Medium-depth peels: This type of chemical peel goes deeper into your skin, and you'll usually prefer to do this type of facial rejuvenation treatment over a long weekend. You may also want to prepare yourself for more discomfort during and about an hour after treatment. Medium-depth peels are for patients who have significant damage to their skin like deeper wrinkles and darker pigmentation issues.
Deep peels: The most advanced of the three types of chemical peels is the deep peel, and it will require the longest recovery time. This is an aggressive treatment that may leave your face peeling, itchy, and swollen for a few weeks. Patients who have a deep peel will have dark age spots, sun-damaged skin, entrenched acne scars, and/or deep-seated scars. As this type of peel is generally uncomfortable for most patients, we may provide you with anesthetic as a part of your treatment.
Seeking the advice of a skin professional is the first step in the journey to smooth, healthy skin. A team member at Robert Schwartz Plastic Surgery can assess your skin in an examination in our Dallas, TX office before choosing a chemical peel treatment for optimal results. Chemical peel candidates, both men and women, will have noticeable issues with their skin such as scaly patches, flaky skin, uneven pigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, sun spots, and much more. We can suggest different levels of chemical peels to meet your needs and concerns.
"I had the best experience working with Dr. Schwartz and his beautiful staff! I went in for my second breast augmentation to have my saline implants of 13 years removed and replaced with silicone. Upon meeting Dr. Schwartz, I knew immediately my search was over. He walked me through everything in detail, Listened to every question I had and truly wanted me to have the best experience and what I wanted within reason. From the moment I set foot in his surgery center the day of my surgery, I was greeted with smiles and I felt so comfortable, the nurses, Dr. Chang his anesthesiologist, PCD Laura, all of them, I knew I was in good hands! They look amazing now and I love them! Thank you Dr. Schwartz!"- Anonymous / RealSelf / Jul 03, 2019
"I have been getting Botox, fillers, Facials ect. For years, but I only trust one person only for that. Cristy is an amazing talented esthetician. Every time I see her I know I’m in good hands especially my lips. Defiantly the lip queen of Dallas. Thank you so much Cristy."- P.R. / Google / Feb 15, 2020
"10 STARS at least. This doctor is absolutely amazing. Dallas is lucky to have a doctor of this caliber in the area. We spent months researching and speaking with several doctors in the area. My wife was extremely specific in exactly what she wanted. Dr. Schwartz and the staff spoke and met with her several times to ensure that she got the exact results that she expected. My wife was specifically detailed in her expectations and he has EXCEEDED them. The results are picture perfect and she feels FANTABULOUS.I put in a ton of research on this process. I read, reviewed, and watched it seems like a million articles or videos on day to day post op expectations. There are so many stories of girls having issues and pains during the first 7 days post op. I tell you from day one my wife had ZERO PAIN!.......I will say that again ZERO PAIN. We stuck to the medications down to the second and her recovery was pain free....THIS MAN/DOCTOR IS AN ABSOLUTE ROCKSTAR!!!!!!!!"- S.B. / Google / Feb 14, 2020
"I came to Dr Schwartz a very anxious and shy person and from my first consult to my 6 month post-op check in, I have never felt so comfortable and confident under any other medical professional. I’m short and shaped a little oddly, and expressed concern with having the volume I wanted without looking like a caricature. Dr Schwartz took my “dream boobies” photos and translated them to suit my body better than I could have anticipated. I look so much more balanced and proportional without a bra on, and I have never felt so confident in my own skin and motivated to take care of my body. I feel like my true self and I am still in absolute love with my new breasts. The entire staff is really friendly and easy to talk to, the drive to surgery was more stressful than the actual procedure because they took such excellent care of me. I fit in my clothes so much better, I walk with more confidence at work, and my boyfriend has noticed improvements in my posture and the frequency in which I smile in the mirror. Thank you so much for blessing my life with newfound confidence and pride in my body. I never thought I’d feel this good about my body but I’m so glad I researched, found an incredible board certified surgeon and took the plunge. I wouldn’t change a thing about my experience."- P.K. / Google / Feb 13, 2020
"Cristy was absolutely incredible and knowledgeable when it came to my lip filler! I had them done by someone else years ago and didnt like the shape at all and Cristy made sure to really focus on my cupids bow to make sure I had the perfect shape so my smile looked great as well! she makes you feel comfortable and relaxed! shes the best and wont go to anyone else!!!"- V.L. / Google / Jan 31, 2020
Plan Your Procedure
On the day of your procedure, we will have you lying down in a relaxed position to administer your peel. We will make sure your skin is cleansed before applying the customized solution to your face and/or neck. We will brush the solution onto your face and let it set for a specific amount of time, which will be discussed in your treatment planning session. Then, we will wash the solution off your face and apply a neutralizing agent. You may want to bring a light sunscreen and a hat to wear outside after the treatment to avoid sun exposure.
What to Expect
Depending on the type of the peel you have, you can expect your skin to itch and peel from a few days to a couple weeks. Dr. Schwartz or a member of his team will give instructions on how to care for your skin during your appointment. Please keep in mind that no matter how much your skin itches during the healing process, it is never a good idea to pull the skin off. You could cause scarring to your facial skin!
