Adult woman with beautiful faceAre you dissatisfied with an uneven skin tone? Do you sometimes feel like you can’t leave the house without makeup to hide your acne scars or hyperpigmentation?

If you found yourself nodding along to any of the above questions, then you may benefit from a chemical peel treatment. At Correa Plastic Surgery in The Woodlands, Texas, Dr. Bryan Correa and his staff specialize in chemical peels that can restore and rejuvenate facial skin.

However, it’s worth noting that not all chemical peels are alike.  Some are made for certain skin tones and types, while other chemical peels may be too harsh certain patients.

So when it comes down to it, how do you know which chemical peel is right for your skin?

First, it’s important to have a consultation with Dr. Correa before undergoing a chemical peel treatment.  During this consultation, Dr. Correa can examine your skin and discuss it with you; by taking the time to get to know your skin, he can ensure you’re treated with the most effective chemical peel possible.

Generally speaking, chemical peels fall into the following categories:

  • Mild peels: These “lunchtime peels” are appropriate for patients who want mild exfoliation of the skin with no recovery or downtime.
  • Moderate peels: These peels remove more damaged layers of skin, which improves the appearance of lines and hyperpigmentation. This chemical peel has a bigger impact, but requires one to two weeks of recovery time from some redness and swelling.
  • Deep peels: This peel is as advanced as it gets. With the deep peel, the chemical penetrates up to the middle skin layer, which removes all old and damaged skin cells.  There is noticeable difference in the final results of this peel; however, this type of peel can only be performed once.  Recovery time takes two to three weeks.
