Younger, brighter-looking skin can be achieved in our office without surgery, as our skilled aestheticians perform chemical peels on all skin types. Plastic Surgery Affiliates offers chemical peels to patients in Nashville, Brentwood, Hendersonville and the surrounding areas in Tennessee.
If you have noticed that your skin has lost some of its glow over time from aging, genetics, stress, or sun exposure then you may consider a chemical peel. Chemical peels are a way to rejuvenate the skin by using exfoliants to scrub away the dead cells that are making your skin look dull and tired. Dr. Hueneke’s Nashville office has a wide variety of chemical peels, and at your consultation, he will gladly work with you to choose the chemical peel to give you the results you desire. Take a moment to review the various peels offered to have a better understanding of which one would best give you the young, lustrous skin you long for.
ZO® Medical Peels
ZO® 3-STEP PEEL™
Designed by Dr. Zein Obagi, this is one of the most innovative and effective treatments for reducing the signs of aging and rejuvenating optimal skin health. This potent stimulating peel designed for acne, melasma, sun damage, fine lines, texture roughness, large pores, and dullness. It promotes softer, smoother skin and is suitable for any skin type or color. Repeat every 4 to 6 weeks to achieve your desired result.
ZO® OSSENTIAL STIMULATOR PEEL
The ZO Ossential Stimulator Peel works wonders in minutes. It’s a quick and easy treatment that can be done in your lunch hour to miraculously smooth away fine to moderate lines and wrinkles, acne, age spots, uneven pigmentation and rough skin texture.
The Ossential Stimulator Peel is designed to exfoliate the skin by stimulating cellular turnover to improve skin tone, texture and clarity. And the best part is that there is no downtime, peeling or redness afterwards; just glowing, healthy skin. This peel contains 3 different acids to exfoliate your skin and promote cell turnover; with 10% Salicylic Acid, 10% Lactic Acid and 10% Citric Acid.
TCA peels, trichloroacetic acid peels, are stronger chemical peels that rejuvenate and repair your skin. We can offer different strengths such as TCA 15%, 20%, 25%, and 30%. They improve skin discoloration, severe sun damage, reduce fine lines, and even out skin texture. They also cause your skin to physically peel pretty heavily, so they will require around a week of downtime
This is a mild chemical peel that is able to remove wrinkles, sun damage, and acne on most parts of the body. The Jessner Peel requires a little more time to heal; however, it works well on all skin types and has an amazing effect on the removal of skin irregularities. Dr. Hueneke’s patients love that the side effects are minimal and the results are long-lasting and incredible.
What to Expect After a Chemical Peel
Your skin may be slightly red or swollen just after a chemical peel. This is normal, and should subside within three to four days. You might also be more sensitive to sunlight for a week or so afterwards, so you should wear sunscreen whenever you are outdoors and avoid using a tanning bed until after your face has completely healed.
