Owsley Plastic Surgery

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are an effective cosmetic treatment for patients desiring full facial rejuvenation. These solutions are applied to the face to remove dead, dry outer skin cells that tend to dull the complexion. There are a variety of chemical peel solutions available, to allow for customization of treatment to the patient’s specific needs.


At Owsley Plastic Surgery, we offer the following peel options:

  • Glycolic Acid Peel – Also referred to as an alpha hydroxy peel, this is the lightest peel treatment available. Glycolic acid is a natural substance derived from sugar cane. When placed on the skin, this solution produces a softer, smoother complexion with more even tone and pigmentation. It also stimulates cell rebuilding within the skin, which creates longer-lasting results.
  • Salicylic Acid Peel – Salicylic acid is a beta hydroxy acid that works equally well on dehydrated and acne-prone skin. The solution comes in various concentrations, ranging from 10% (mild) to 30% (deep). This allows our staff to provide customized treatment, depending on the specific skin concerns of the patient. The peel addresses signs of aging, sun damage, minor blemishes and acne.
  • Peels for Sensitive Skin – At Owsley Plastic Surgery, we also offer specialized peel formulations designed for even the most sensitive skin This allows patients with more delicate complexions to enjoy the rejuvenation benefits of a peel without skin irritation or damage. Our highly trained staff will provide a thorough evaluation of your skin before recommending the best peel solution for your needs.


Chemical peels are performed by our trained staff at Owsley Plastic Surgery. After the skin is thoroughly cleansed, the peel solution is applied and left on the skin for a prescribed period of time. The peel is then removed using a neutralizing solution and water.

After the procedure, the skin may be red and feel sunburned. Patients are advised to avoid sun exposure until the skin heals completely. Most return to work or regular activities the same day, particularly after a light peel.


Results from a chemical peel will appear gradually as the skin heals. Most patients see full results within 1-2 weeks. The duration of the results will depend on the depth of the peel, with deeper peels lasting much longer.


Chemical peels continue to be one of the most popular methods of full facial rejuvenation today.
