Peels and Chemical Dermabrasion

- Chemical peels involve applying certain agents on the skin peeling off the old skin that gets replaced by smoother new skin.

- Chemical peels can be applied to different areas as face, neck and hands.

Additional Facts

Who is a good candidate for Peels and Chemical Dermabrasion?

Overall healthy patients who desire to achieve facial rejuvenation by decreasing wrinkles around the eyes, mouth or other areas, improve the appearance of scars (e.g. acne), treat melasma (dark pigmentation of the face that occurs with pregnancy), eliminate or improve sun spots, age spots and freckles.

What are Peels and Chemical Dermabrasion contraindications?

We recommend avoiding the procedure in severe or uncontrolled systemic diseases, connective tissue disease, malignancy, unrealistic expectations, local skin pathology and pregnancy.

Note: A contraindication is a condition or factor that serves as a reason to withhold a certain medical treatment due to the harm that it would cause the patient.

How is this procedure performed?

- The skin is cleaned thoroughly prior to applying the peel. The specific strength and depth of peel is discussed before the procedure. The chemical agent is then applied on the skin. Patients might feel a mild burning sensation for a few minutes and cool compresses can be used to alleviate this sensation.

- Multiple treatments might be needed especially with superficial and medium depth peels.

How long does the effect last?

Results vary per patient and skin type but improvement is expected to be long term.

What should I expect during recovery?

- Some redness, skin sensitivity and swelling can occur during recovery which last for a few hours to a few days.

- Skin blistering and peeling (may last for 2 weeks in average) is expected during recovery.

- Avoid sun exposure and hot showers.

- Dressing might need to be applied to the treatment areas.

Where is the scar?

There are no incisions or scars. However scarring is an uncommon complication that can occur after the procedure.

Dr. Akkary

I wouldn't go anywhere else!

I have been seeing Dr. Akkary since 2014. The first day I was given his cell number...that has NEVER happened before at any other doctor's office. He is genuine and compassionate and really only wants to help you succeed. I have called him so many times and he has ALWAYS answered my questions. He has performed 2 surgeries on me and I wouldn't go anywhere else! I trust him and his staff completely. They will listen to all of your concerns and explain everything completely!

Great for anything in his speciality

If you are looking for a doctor who will listen to you and explain what & why he’s going to do something, you have found him. He has the added benefit of a wonderful bedside manner minus the arrogance found in doctors ( just because they are doctors, you have met a few if you’re reading this I’m sure). In all he’s a wonderful person who if you’re lucky enough to find him, give him a call. You will have an amazing doctor who is there for you without dodging your call’s no matter how silly you think the question or thought may be ( this isn’t a paid ad I promise, you have his cellphone number incase of anything no matter the time. Sorry, but I’ve never been able to reach a doctor 24-7 without going through a answering service and even then how many times do you get to talk to them? Not many from my experience and I’ve seen more doctors than I care to think about.) he’s always able to answer it or calm your pre surgery nerves. He’s great if you’re looking for anything in his specialty and if I could, he’d be my doctor for everything, but he’s only one person so I will settle for his specific fields.

My acid reflux and GERD was curable

I never imagined that my acid reflux and GERD was curable. I truly never imagined the life changing results that something called a Nissan Fundoplication would bring to my life thanks to the skilled hands of Dr. Ehab Akkary! Thank you Doc!
