Facial skin resurfacing treatments include laser procedures and chemical peels. At Mangat Copit Plastic Surgery and Skin Care, chemical peels are our procedure of choice for many clients because of their superior results, faster healing, and low risk.
What should I expect with a chemical peel?
Chemical peels are performed on an outpatient basis. Before treatment, your skin will be cleaned, your hair covered, and your eyes protected with ointment, gauze, or tape. Depending on the peel strength (light, medium, or deep), you may be given a sedative and painkiller or a local anesthetic. During the treatment, you may feel a slight tingling or stinging sensation. For deep chemical peel treatments, “twilight” anesthesia will be used to ensure you are comfortable.
