Newport Beach doctor uses latest generation of versatile chemical peel treatment options

Dr. Arta Farshidi wants to help you improve your skin and discover a new you with chemical peels. This versatile treatment option is capable of improving the tone, texture, and overall appearance of your face, hands, neck, and chest. The peel gets its name from a chemical solution that, when applied in a controlled manner under professional supervision, penetrates the outermost layers of damaged skin to reveal a new, refreshed look.

Many types of solutions are used to affect positive skin changes. These options contribute to the ability to customize the peel to many different patients’ unique needs. Even similar acid bases may be further customized, as the concentration of the acid is also tailored to each patient.

How does Dr. Farshidi identify the type of solution that will effectively and safely transform your skin? Many different factors must be taken into account, including:

  • Skin tone
  • Condition to be treated
  • Medication use
  • Medical history
  • Lifestyle
  • Goals

While Arta Dermatology does not use deep or aggressive peels, some solutions and their respective acid base and concentration affect deeper layers of skin. Patients should have different expectations for post-treatment care and results, based on the depth of the peel.

Light or superficial peels — For mild discoloration, rough skin, and acne, this option removes the outermost layer of skin or epidermis. It is generally well-tolerated, but repeated peels may be necessary to achieve desired improvements.

Medium peels — For fine lines, moderate pigmentation concerns, acne scars, and precancerous growths, this solution penetrates the epidermis and the outermost mid-layer of skin or dermis. You may experience redness, swelling, and crusting.

Always at the leading edge of dermatological products and techniques, Dr. Farshidi offers the Apeele® and VI Peel™ systems. Both brands can achieve dramatic results with a single session. The Apeele® is a hybrid option, it combines common alpha-hydroxy acids and exfoliating agents to affect the skin’s superficial and middle layers.

VI Peel is a departure from “traditional” peels, it can be used to transform many different skin tones without the discomfort, downtime, and other complications long associated with deeper peeling agents.

Modern lasers can also encourage skin regrowth by removing the outermost layers of tissue. While one technique isn’t necessarily better than the other, a peel or a laser treatment may be better for you. To get the results you desire, lasers or peels may be used in combination or in conjunction with other types of treatments.
