If you have photodamage on your skin from overexposure to the sun over the years, you may find that your skin is aging faster than you would like. In order to look more the age you feel inside, you may have to do some repairs on your skin in order to create the appearance you want. There is no way to reverse the aging process completely, but there are plenty of skin care treatments that can help you rejuvenate your skin. The Baker-Gordon Phenol Peel for skin resurfacing is one such procedure.
Baker-Gordon Phenol Peel is a deep chemical peel that is used for skin that has major photodamage. Patients need to have the procedure done in a proper medical center and will normally be sedated and have an IV line in for hydration. This chemical peel has been proven a safe and effective way to improve wrinkles, fine lines, and moderate skin damage.
Deep chemical peels are designed to increase the body’s natural production of collagen. During a chemical peel, the surface layers of the skin are wounded or damaged. As the facial skin repairs itself, newer, healthier skin replaces the damaged skin. This new layer of skin is more vibrant and youthful.
Whether you have fine lines around your eyes, wrinkles surrounding your mouth, or photodamage from too much sun exposure, it is a good idea to have the right level of expectation about the results from the procedure. During your consultation, we’ll be able to address any questions you many have and can review the process in complete detail. At Thomas Funcik Facial Plastic Surgery in Charleston, our patients are our top priority. We’ll make sure you get the most appropriate treatment for your needs.
It is a good idea to understand pre and post-operative care so you can put everything into place before the procedure. That way, once you are through the process, you will not have to worry about anything once you are done with the procedure. Everything will be lined up and waiting for you to make the recovery process as simple and easy as possible.
This procedure process can vary depending on what you need and want to have done. The best thing you can do if you are considering such a procedure is schedule a consultation appointment Dr. Thomas Funcik.
