Chemical Peel

Minimally Invasive Procedure

A chemical peel uses a chemical solution to smooth the texture of your skin by removing the damaged outer layers.

What should I expect during a consultation for a chemical peel?

During your chemical peel consultation be prepared to discuss:

  • Your goals
  • Medical conditions, drug allergies, medical treatments and smoking history
  • Current medications, vitamins, herbal supplements, alcohol, tobacco and drug use
  • Previous surgeries or treatments

Your surgeon will also:

  • Evaluate your general health status and any pre-existing health conditions or risk factors
  • Discuss likely outcomes and any risks or potential complications

Be sure to ask your plastic surgeon questions. To help, we have prepared a checklist of questions to ask during your chemical peel consultation.

It's very important to understand all aspects of your chemical peel. It's natural to feel some anxiety, whether it's excitement for your anticipated new look or a bit of stress. Don't be afraid to discuss these feelings with your plastic surgeon.
