    Chemical peel appeal


    Chemical Peel Pearls

    Dr. Fedok offers these words of wisdom for achieving optimal peel results.

    “First, candidate selection is important. Keep in mind both the Fitzpatrick and the Glogou scales,” he says. “In this regard, your most favorable peel candidates will have lighter skin tones.”

    Make realistic choices for clinical peel targets. For example, profound skin laxity may be better treated with a surgical, rather than a resurfacing, procedure.

    Consider a pretreatment skin preparation with bleaching agents and topical tretinoin, and use antivirals, especially if treating near the lips.

    Have appropriate informed consent via patient discussions.

    Follow the patient closely post procedure.
