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.

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!
