About Chemical Peels
Offering the best in chemical peel facial treatments, Yonick Plastic Surgery provides patients with options for a medical-grade facial treatment with chemical solutions (such as glycolic, salicylic, lactic, and trichloroacetic acids) that give you healthier, smoother skin. At our Midland, MI office, Dr. David Yonick and his team offer chemical peel treatments that help to remove skin abnormalities like fine lines, wrinkles, scars, rough patches, hyperpigmentation issues, and more. Chemical peels eliminate dead, damaged skin cells by using a specific peel on your skin, which causes the oldest layer to peel off. As your skin heals and begins to rejuvenate and repair itself, you may notice a clearer, smoother complexion. A chemical peel treatment is a noninvasive procedure to make your skin radiant and may be appropriate for the neck and face.
Variations of Chemical Peels
At our Midland, MI office, we perform chemical peels in a few levels of strength (light, medium, and deep) to meet our patients' skincare concerns and goals.
Light peels: You can have a light chemical peel during your lunch time and return back to your day. This level of peel will remove the top skin layer (the epidermis), giving your face a brighter appearance and softer texture. We typically suggest that you receive a light chemical peel about once a month for the best glowing results.
Medium-depth peels: This level of chemical peel reaches deeper into your skin, and you'll usually prefer to do this strength of facial rejuvenation treatment over a long weekend. You may also need to prepare yourself for more discomfort during and up to an hour after peel. Medium-depth peels are designed for patients who have significant damage to their skin including deeper wrinkles and darker pigmentation issues.
Deep peels: The most advanced of the three types of chemical peels is the deep chemical peel, and it will require the lengthiest recovery time. This is an aggressive procedure that can leave your face peeling, itchy, and swollen for 2 – 3 weeks. Patients who get a deep peel will have dark age spots, sun-damaged skin, prominent acne scars, and deep-seated scars. As this level of peel is usually uncomfortable for most patients, we can provide you with local anesthesia before your peel.
Getting the recommendations of a cosmetic professional is the first step in the journey to healthy, smooth skin. A team member at Yonick Plastic Surgery can assess your skin in an exam in our office before choosing a chemical peel treatment for best results. Chemical peel candidates, both women and men, should have noticeable concerns on their skin including scaly patches, flaky skin, uneven pigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, sun spots, and much more. We may suggest varying strengths of chemical peels to match your needs and concerns.

Plan Your Procedure
During your procedure at Yonick Plastic Surgery, we will have you lying down in a relaxed position to administer your peel. We will make sure your skin is cleansed before applying the customized solution to your face, neck, or both. We will spread the solution onto your face and let it set for a specific amount of time, which will be discussed in your treatment planning session. Next, we will wash the solution off your face and apply a neutralizing agent. You should bring a light sunscreen and/or a hat to wear outside after the peel to protect against UV exposure.
What to Expect
Depending on the strength of the peel you receive, you can expect the treated area to itch and peel from a few days to a couple weeks. Dr. Yonick or a member of his team will give instructions on ways to care for your skin during your procedure. Please keep in mind that no matter how much your skin itches during the recovery, it is never good to peel the skin off. You could cause scarring to your skin!
