Amazing! I came to this office with concerns of acne that I’ve had since middle school. I had a terrible experience with a previous dermatology office who prescribed me a gel that my skin was not tolerating and just told me I would grow out of my acne. Dr. Timani’s PA, Cassie, took her time to examine my skin and make a skin care routine that was right for me! My acne CLEARED after following my new regimen. Dr. Timani also suggested a chemical peel to help with my stubborn acne scars. She answered all questions and concerns I had about the procedure and talked me through the whole process. I highly recommend the chemical peels as well; I saw improvements in my scars after one treatment! I can honestly say that I finally feel confident in my skin thanks to Dr. Timani and her PAs, Cassie and Megan. They are awesome!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


Any chemical peel or a customized medical-grade chemical peel?
Your skin is very unique in texture, tone, and healing. So are your goal.
Chemical peels have evolved tremendously and just like our options with skin care and makeup ,now  we have more choices .

What is the difference between a medical-grade chemical peel and a NONE medical grade chemical peel?
They are usually administered by a licensed medical provider like a physician or a physician assistant. They include ingredients that are only accessible to a physician’s office.

How do medical-grade chemical peels work?
Chemical peels exfoliate the top layers of the skin allowing your skin to regenerate healthier skin from the beast to the top. This allows your skin to shed skin layers with abnormal pigmentation, fine wrinkles and some types of scars. The skin that comes through is usually much healthier.

Most medical-grade chemical peels sting slightly, but calming balms can be applied during the treatment. They are very soothing. This sensation improves very quickly over few minutes. I have never had a patient say they would not repeat a chemical peel because of Discomfort or healing.

How often should I perform a medical-grade chemical peel?
A series of 4 to 6 chemical peels is recommended for ideal results. Usually the peels are performed 4 to 6 weeks apart. If you are not able to keep up with the pace of the chemical peels, stretching out the frequency or skipping a season is not detrimental at all! the benefit will not be lost.

Are the results long-lasting?
I recommend chemical peels for active problems and for prevention as well.
We use chemical peels routinely for prevention of acne, pigmentations, fine wrinkles and pre cancers. In fact, the benefits from prevention far exceed the benefits once the damage has happened.

Are medical-grade chemical peels safe for SKIN OF COLOR?
You have probably heard me say this over and over, I was very nervous about approaching my skin type with chemical peels until peel evolved. 
We have to be very careful with the darker skin because it heals in a very special way. we have to avoid any worsening of pigmentation. But yes there are chemical peels for all shades of skin these days.
Careful selection of a physician that understands your skin type is crucial.


Do I need any treatments before a medical-grade chemical peel?

There are certain skin types that need priming.

The priming routines usually include special medicated creams that are applied a few weeks prior to the chemical peel. These may maximize the results. Of course, every skin type is unique. But no matter how unique sunscreens are critical before, during and after the treatment.

 

How is the healing from medical-grade chemical peels?

Typically, the patient will be dry the next day, and the peeling starts in 48 to 72 hours. Different zones of the face peel differently, and different areas of the body peel differently as well.

Are medical-grade chemical peels effective for WRINKLES and SUN DAMAGE?

Chemical peels can be effective for many attributes of sun damage including very fine wrinkles but they are not necessarily effective for deep wrinkles. My patience thoroughly enjoyed them especially on the chest and décolletage area where there are much less options than the face.
