About Chemical Peels
Using the highest quality in chemical peel facial treatments, Setty Plastics & Aesthetics provides patients with several choices for a customized facial treatment with chemical solutions (such as salicylic, glycolic, trichloroacetic and lactic acids) that give you smoother, healthier skin. At our Dallas, TX office, plastic surgeon Dr. Naveen Setty offers chemical peel treatments that resolve skin abnormalities like scars, wrinkles, fine lines, rough patches, hyperpigmentation problems, and more. Chemical peels work by removing dead, damaged skin cells with the application of a customized peel on the skin that causes the top layer to slough off. When your skin recovers and starts to repair and rejuvenate itself, you may see a smoother, clearer complexion. A chemical peel facial is a nonsurgical way to make your complexion radiant and is appropriate for the neck and face.
Variations of Chemical Peels
In our Dallas, TX office, we perform chemical peels in different levels of strength (light, medium, and deep) to meet our patients' skin needs.
You can receive a light peel during your lunchtime and return back to your routine. This level of peel will remove the outer skin layer (the epidermis), giving your face a more radiant appearance and smoother texture. We usually recommend that you receive a light chemical peel about once a month for the ideal glowing results.
This level of peel reaches further into the skin, and patients generally decide to have this strength of facial treatment during an extended weekend. You may also need to ready yourself for increased discomfort during and up to one hour following the peel. Medium-depth peels are designed for patients who have mild to moderate damage to their skin including deeper lines and darker pigmentation problems.
The strongest of the three levels of peels is the deep chemical peel, and it does require the lengthiest recovery time. This is an aggressive procedure that can leave your face swollen, itchy, and peel for 2 – 3 weeks. Patients who get a deep chemical peel usually have age or dark spots, sun damage, prominent acne scars, and extensive scars from trauma or surgery. Since this level of chemical peel is usually uncomfortable for patients, your aesthetician can provide you with local anesthesia before your peel.
Chemical Peel Reviews
"As a woman, I must be comfortable with my cosmetic surgeon - Setty Plastics offers an array of facial services, Botox and the skin tight with liposuction etc. Dr. Setty and his staff are the best. From the very personable and professional front desk administrators to the highly trained estheticians. As a long time client of Kate, she provides skin care for myself and my teenage daughter. She is very thorough and knowledgeable of our skincare needs. I have normal to dry brown skin and my daughter has oily sensitive skin and neither of us have ever had any issues with products or any treatments including chemical peels. Dr. Setty, who I can say is by far the best, preformed liposuction on my arms with body tight and the results are not only amazing but unbelievable. Honestly, had I not been the actual before and after patient, I would not have believed it. UNBELIEVABLE but very real and true. The sagging skin is gone and my arms look like they did when I was in my early 30’s. Sleeveless tanks, shirts etc. I can now wear with pure confidence. This procedure was literally painless and the downtime, maybe a day or two depending on your lifestyle. Dr. Naveen Setty is a delight to have as my cosmetic doctor. As a woman, I must be comfortable with my cosmetic surgeon. It’s really hard to see “aging body flaws” and ask for help to fix them. I want my cosmetic surgeon to process certain characteristics and Dr. Setty has them ALL. He is very personable, professional, highly trained & VERY experienced. He is extremely patient & listens to your concerns. His honesty and knowledge of the industry is quite impressive and he offers the latest procedures with flawless results. I am ALWAYS VERY happy with every service that I have received from Setty Plastics & will continue to be a client for my body and skincare needs.Real patient.

"Meeting Felicia was the happiest accident in recent years. She has turned my dull skin around. And I had no idea how much room for improvement there was until she got me on a ZO routine! We started off slow and added ZO products as my skin was ready for it. After some months of skin prep, we did a chemical peel. I cannot tell you how happy I am with my results. Go see her and thank me later!"- R.B. / Google / Aug 28, 2020

"My life has changed since I’ve being getting my skin care treatment! 4 months ago I felt my lowest, my face was breaking out & nothing was working. I had bad acne & hyperpigmentation. For years I have been on the same medication that my dermatologist provided me & no results. I initially just wanted to walk in & have a chemical peel but Felicia my aesthetician recommended using Zo’skin health to prepare my skin before getting a peel. I left with no peel & feeling doubtful about buying expensive products. After two weeks of using the products I noticed results! As the weeks went on I started having more & more confidence my skin looking amazing. Last month I had my first chemical peel after months of using Zo’ Skin Health. Felicia did the Zo’skin step 3 peel. The peel took a week & my skin hasn’t looked & felt this amazing in YEARS! Felicia has been amazing from day one I’m so happy I decided to take a leap of faith!"- E.C. / Google / Oct 24, 2020

Getting the recommendations of a cosmetic specialist is the first part of the journey to healthy, smooth skin. A team member at Setty Plastics & Aesthetics will evaluate your skin during an exam in our McKinney, or Dallas, TX offices before selecting a chemical peel for best results. Chemical peel patients, both women and men, should have visible concerns on their skin including acne scars, rough patches, flaky skin, discoloration, sun spots, fine lines, and more. We may recommend varying strengths of peels to match your needs.
During your appointment at Setty Plastics & Aesthetics, we will have you lying in a comfortable position to administer your treatment. A team member will ensure the skin is cleaned prior to applying the personalized solution to the face, neck, or both. We will spread the solution onto the skin and allow it to work for an appropriate length of time that will be determined in your chemical peel consultation. Next, we will clean the peel off your skin and put on a neutralizing agent. Patients should bring sunscreen and/or a hat to wear outside following the peel to protect against UV exposure.
What to Expect
Based on the strength of the chemical peel you receive, you should expect the treated area to peel and itch from several days to two or more weeks. Dr. Setty or a member of his team will explain ways to treat your face during your procedure. Please remember that no matter how badly your skin itches throughout the recovery, it's not good to peel the skin off. You may scar your skin!
