First impressions matter most, and nothing creates a bigger impression than healthy, glowing skin. Over the years, acne and the elements result in fine lines, discoloration, wrinkles, and scarring. Though most adults want to look younger, many are not ready or able to undergo surgery. For these people, chemical peels can result in younger looking skin without surgery.
Also known as chemexfoliation or derma peeling, chemical peels can reduce imperfections on the skin such as acne scars, wrinkles, or liver spots. Peel solutions are applied to the skin, removing one or more of its layers in accordance with a doctor’s recommendation and the patient’s desired result. While mostly applied to the face, this procedure can be done on other areas as well.
Peeling solutions vary from patient to patient, depending on a number of factors. Either phenol, trichloroacetic acid, glycolic acid, salicylic acid, or alphahydroxy acid is chosen as the active ingredient in the peel. These procedures are highly individualized, which is why it is very important to seek the care of an experienced doctor such as Dr. Nazarian.
Levels Of Chemical Peeling
There are three levels of chemical peels: light, medium, and deep.
A light peel removes the outermost layer of skin. Done once a month for continued results, this is a good choice for people with fine lines, dry skin buildups, uneven pigmentation, or acne. Patients with sensitive skin may experience mild stinging while the solution is on their skin.
Medium depth peels are designed for moderate wrinkles, light scars, or uneven pigmentation. They remove both the outer and middle layers of skin, so patients may experience stinging or burning during the procedure with redness persisting for up to six weeks afterward. They are typically performed every six to twelve months to maintain a fresh glow.
A deep peel removes skin down to its deepest layer and is used to treat deep imperfections like wrinkles, precancerous growths, or sun damage. A local anesthetic may be necessary to manage discomfort during the procedure, and doctors may prescribe painkillers afterward. The recovery period is longer, up to three months, but the dramatic results can last for up to ten years.
Though not as invasive as other methods, scheduling a consultation with an experienced physician is vital no matter the depth of treatment. When performed by a reputable doctor, the results are lasting and promote more youthful skin without surgery.
Juvederm is the number one dermal filler in the United States today, but only a healthcare professional experienced in dermal fillers can determine whether Juvederm is right for you. Individual Juvederm results will vary from patient to patient, so a one-on-one consultation can give you a better understanding of the type of results you can expect following a treatment.

I have never met such a nice, professsional and humble doctor like her.I had breast augmentation 5 days ago and I’m feeling great.Wow what a great experience with Dr . Nazarian. She is wonderful and very caring thru the whole process. Thanks Dr.for changing my appearance and helping me with every question I had. I totally recommend her to anyone who is looking for an excellent Dr. If I would of known about her before, I would of done this procedure years ago.This is my first time writing a review, but I had to share this experience because I know there are people looking for a good Dr they can trust. I am truly very happy with Dr . Nazarian. Again thank you very much for doing such a great job.
Dr. Nazarian is the a 5 star plastic surgeon! I had a growing scalp mass above my left ear, kinda like a cyst, she told me it was called lipoma. Anyway she removed the cyst in her office even when I was told by other doctors that it had to be done at a hospital which is more cost full and inconvenient for your wallet. She’s a great doctor and definitely recommend anyone to visit her office, her receptionist is on point and is very kind, helpful, and welcoming when visiting the office or calling about your appointment.
Besides being a great surgeon, Dr Nazarian carries a line for PREGNANT women called Spa Momma which is made-in-the-USA with no lead, phthalates, formaldehyde, propylene glycol, and no pregnancy-contraindicated aromatherapy oils!!!!!! I am obsessed with the body oil and the body scrub! I was having some major itching issues and I tried everything but nothing really helped. Then I tried the itchies body oil and it was the first relief I had had in months and I have no stretch marks!!!!!!!! Dr Nazarian is so up to date and science based and is willing to take time and help you out no matter what you issue is!!! I love her professionalism and recommend 110%!
