What Is A Chemical Peel?

Dr. Sajjadian performs chemical peels on an outpatient basis within his gorgeous, relaxing office. Patients are allowed to return home immediately following the procedure, which typically lasts 15 to 30 minutes.

Dr. Sajjadian begins the procedure by creating a chemical solution of alphahydroxy acids (glycolic, lactic or fruit acids), trichloroacetic acids, or other peeling agents, depending on the aesthetic goals of his patient. Then, he carefully applies the solution to the treatment area, which reacts with the skin to “peel” the outer layer of dead skin cells. The solution also stimulates new skin cell growth to give chemical peel patients a are more refreshed, rejuvenated appearance.

Following the procedure, Dr. Sajjadian recommends patients avoid sunlight and makeup for a few days. Once healed, patients notice an improvement in wrinkles, acne, scars and the overall skin texture and appearance.
