About Facial Peels
Offering only the best in facial peel treatments, Lee Plastic Surgery and Laser Center provides patients with numerous options for a personalized facial treatment with chemical solutions (such as glycolic, salicylic, lactic, and trichloroacetic acids) that give you healthier, smoother facial skin. At our Port St. Lucie, FL office, plastic surgeon Dr. S. Darrell Lee offers facial peel treatments that help to solve skin irregularities such as scars, fine lines, wrinkles, dry patches, hyperpigmentation issues, and more. Facial peels remove damaged, dead skin cells by applying a personalized treatment on your skin, which causes the upper layer to peel off. As your skin heals and begins to rejuvenate and repair itself, you will notice a clearer, smoother complexion. A facial peel treatment is a noninvasive method to make your skin luminous and can be used not only for the face but neck as well.
Variations of Facial Peels
At our Port St. Lucie, FL office, we offer facial peels in multiple strengths (light, medium, and deep) to accommodate our patients' skincare concerns.
Light peels: You can have a light facial 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 facial 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 facial peels is the deep peel, and it will require the longest recovery time. This is an aggressive treatment that may leave your face itchy, peeling, and swollen for a few weeks. Patients who have a deep peel generally 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 Lee Plastic Surgery and Laser Center can assess your skin in an examination in our Port St. Lucie, FL office before choosing a facial peel treatment for optimal results. Facial peel candidates, both men and women, will have noticeable issues with their skin such as rough patches, acne scars, discoloration, flaky skin, fine lines, sun spots, and much more. We can suggest different levels of facial peels to meet your concerns.
"Absolutely the most kind, caring and patient staff and Dr Lee is amazing. He is so good at what he does. I've had a few procedures done both in office and at surgery center. I'd recommend Dr Lee to anyone who is looking for a board certified plastic surgeon. I'm so thankful to have chosen them!"- A. / Healthgrades / Feb 09, 2019
"Friendly, informative staff and Dr Lee is great!!"- D.J. / Google / Jul 18, 2019
"Excellent plastic surgeon! Dr. Lee did my augmentation 18 years ago. I was so pleased with the results that I traveled from Boca (where there are tons of plastic surgeons) to Port St. Lucie to have them redone. I’m almost 2 weeks out of surgery and am thrilled with my results! Everyone in the office is super nice and helpful! I highly recommended him!"- K.E. / Google / Jul 12, 2019
"I have to say this is by far the best doctors office I have been too. I went to a different surgeon before Dr. Lee who made me wait three hours after my appointment time and spent very little time with me in general. Every appointment I have had with Dr. Lee has been right on time, especially after the surgery when they did not make me wait in the waiting room at all. His office staff is beyond friendly, helpful, and extremely efficient. My boyfriend and mother who have attended a few visits with me even commented on them without me saying anything first. What is more is when I first spoke to Dr. Lee at our first appointment, I knew I wouldn't want anyone else doing the surgery. He was very informative and answered all my many questions without making me feel like he needed to rush me out of there. This goes for every appointment I have had after with him as well. And finally, I have completed my surgery with Dr. Lee and I honestly cannot express enough how happy I am with my results!!"- J. / Healthgrades / Jul 10, 2019
"I recently had dermal filler injections administered by Dr Lee, himself, and am extremely thrilled with the outcome! He took ample time beforehand to discuss with me my expectations and desired results. Dr. Lee is a perfectionist, extremely experienced and knowledgeable, which ensures safe and successful results. I might add that his nurses and office staff are also wonderful, which created an overall extremely positive experience. If you are considering any kind of facial enhancement, Dr. Lee is the person to go to - you won’t be disappointed. He’s an artist."- J.T. / Healthgrades / Jul 10, 2019
Plan Your Procedure
On the day of your procedure at Lee Plastic Surgery and Laser Center, 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. Lee or a member of his team will go over 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!
