Chemical Peels in Irvine, CA

If you are looking for a refreshing, yet effective solution for signs of aging and other cosmetic skin concerns, look no further than a chemical peel. Newport Plastic Surgery offers this rejuvenating treatment with the expertise of Dr. Go, a triple board-certified plastic surgeon in Costa Mesa, Newport Beach and Irvine, CA.

What is a Chemical Peel?

A chemical peel is a controlled exfoliation treatment that is similar to a facial. It uses a blend of safe chemicals to exfoliate the outermost layers of skin, eliminating skin damage, signs of aging, and other cosmetic concerns. The chemical peel treatments are largely customizable, and we will change the strength and ingredients of each treatment depending on the patient’s skin type and skin care needs. Newport Plastic Surgery offers medical-grade chemical peel treatments to help patients achieve optimal results. These treatments can be used to address:

  • Lines and wrinkles
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Acne and acne scarring
  • Uneven skin tone or texture
  • Enlarged pores
  • Sun damage and age spots

How Much Do Chemical Peels Cost?

The cost of a chemical peel can vary depending on the extent of treatment necessary to deliver a patient’s desired results. When you schedule a consultation with Dr. Go of Newport Plastic Surgery, he will develop a personalized treatment plan based on your specific cosmetic goals. Once this treatment plan is developed, we will be able to provide you with the exact cost of treatment. We also offer financing through CareCredit® to make this and other treatments more affordable.

The ‘GoPeel’ Chemical Peel

At Newport Plastic Surgery, Inc., we proudly offer Dr. Go’s proprietary formulation of chemical peel, affectionately known as our ‘GoPeel’.  Although there are many variants today of aesthetic chemical peels incorporating countless combinations of emollients, chemicals, and acids, there are only a few that penetrate deep enough to produce exquisite and noticeable results.  Our proprietary blend of peel is of medical-grade strength, meaning regulations require that it can only be offered in physician offices.  The deeper skin penetration leads to a more significant exfoliation of your environmentally-damaged skin with enhancements in treating fine lines and wrinkles, as well as helping to alleviate sun damaged spots and other pigmentation changes.  With our exclusive GoPeel performed in the comforts of our office, patients can expect a pleasant experience with no downtime, leading to a smooth and even complexion with a noticeably rejuvenated and glowing new skin!

How Are Chemical Peels Administered?

Before a chemical peel treatment, the skin will be thoroughly cleaned in preparation. Then, the chemical peel solution will be applied evenly to the skin. The length of time that the solution will stay on the skin varies depending on the treatment. In some cases, the patient may wear the chemical peel home and wash it off a few hours later. In other cases, we may remove it in-office after a certain period of time.

What is Recovery Like After a Chemical Peel Treatment?

Your recovery following a chemical peel will depend on the strength of the initial treatment. In most cases, patients will experience redness and sensitivity in the skin after their appointment. This may last a few days, and the skin usually begins to peel once the redness fades. During this time, it is important to avoid sunlight to prevent damage to the newly healed skin. It may also be necessary to avoid using make-up and other cosmetic products for a few days. Despite these effects, patients will be able to work and perform other normal activities immediately after their treatment.

What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Chemical Peels?

The results from your chemical peel will become visible after the skin recovers, which typically takes about a week. In some cases, multiple treatment sessions will be necessary to achieve the desired results. Patients often choose to receive regular chemical peel treatments to maintain a smooth, even, and youthful complexion.  Dr. Go typically recommends having a chemical peel done once a season as a good maintenance regimen.
